Love, TV, and PowerStreaming Video - 2006
If TV is the opiate of today's masses, then the Latin American telenovela-broadcast six days a week in prime time to more than 120 countries-is the leading genre. This program examines the cultural impact of the telenovela and its influence on Latin American power politics. Interviews with sociologist Joan Luis von Tilburg; media moguls Emilio Azcarrage and Roberto Marinho; and others are included, along with generous clips from the sensational By These Streets, which closely parallels Venezuelan news events, and the mega-popular Brazilian romantic melodrama Body and Soul.
