Television has a remarkable ability to keep pace with the change that we see around us on a daily basis. As people crave information, entertainment and education so television allows them to learn, to question and to form their own opinion. Politics, whether at a European or a national level, exists for the people. A robust and independent media raises awareness and reports about the successes and challenges facing Europeans today. The emotional power of television enables viewers to explore, to empathise, to engage and to sustain democracies.
