In 2010, the length of the programs focused on education, culture and science broadcast by the National Public Television totalled 10,221 hours, as much as in 2009, but up significantly compared to previous years. In case of the national public radio, the length of this type of programs totalled almost 6,800 hours.

Note that this includes all TVR channels’ broadcasts, namely TVR 1, TVR 2, TVR 3, TVR Cultural, TVR International and TVR Info, and those broadcast by Radio Romania News and Radio Romania Regional (a regional network made up of several broadcasting stations).

As regards these programs’ share in the total hours broadcast, it reached 4.6% for the public radio, and 20.3% for the public television. 10 years ago, the percentages were 5% and 15.6% respectively. Last year, the length of all programs broadcast by the public television was 50,400 hours, and the length of all programs broadcast by the public radio was 147,000 hours.

What happens in the private sector

The private television and radio stations work by other rules, being more interested in audience, and so the structure of their broadcasts is different.

Thus, in 2010, the share of educational, cultural or religious programs for the private televisions was only 8.8%, down from 21.1% in 2006, while entertainment programs have a share of 27.4% (only 9% for TVR).

In the private radio sector, the share of educational, cultural or religious programs was 6.3%, down from 8.9% in 2006, the percentage being higher than that scored by the public radio, but this is most likely due to greater weight of the religious programs.
