On Sunday (February 10th) at 3:00 pm, BNT 2 will broadcast the first episode of the show "To Europe and Forward". The series presents documentaries and memories of eyewitnesses, events and facts from the latest history.
It goes back to the year 1957 when Rome, Belgium, West Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and France signed the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community (EEC). This document is considered to be fundamental in the modern history of United Europe, which Bulgaria joined five decades later.
Every other Sunday of the month, through documentary footage and evidence of distinguished personalities, "To Europe and Forward" will show political, cultural, religious and secular events that played an important role in the history of mankind.
The BNT2 TV project seeks an impartial reading of the events, and to entertainingly ignite and awaken curiosity about familiar or not so familiar facts from these years. The first guest has the senses of the modern free-thinking European, and he has the virtuoso skill to thoroughly and with exquisite irony go back to the past.
The host of the new show is Nikolay Donkov. He has considerable journalistic experience in radio stations in Bulgaria and Canada, where he lived for more than 13 years. His artistic interests include Spanish-language literature, graphic design and rock music.
Each edition of the show is dedicated to a particular year and the ambitions of the team aim to recall and present the whole range of events, conflicts, exciting moments and nostalgic moments enclosed in albums and archival folders between January and December.
Special guest in the edition dedicated to 1958 (February 24) is the famous sculptor Georgi Chapkanov.
