CADIMA, Francisco Rui. From European public TV to the "alienation" of the Idea of Europe. Intercom, Rev. Bras. Ciênc. Comun. [online]. 2016, vol.39, n.2, pp.39-47. ISSN 1809-5844.

European policies on public television and audiovisual production have been, in general, very negative for the European cultural experience, the identity and strengthening of the idea of Europe. After more than 30 years of hesitant and precarious policies that have been systematically reducing the sphere of cultural action and the European identity of public broadcasting in the EU Member States, one is probably reaching a point of no return, in full stage of transition to digital. In the current political context of the audiovisual Directive review, these policies either reinforce the competence of European public television for the construction of the idea of Europe, or they reinforce Europe itself, and the broadcasting media for spreading their culture will definitely be in danger.

Keywords : Public television; Audiovisual Directive; Television production; Culture; Idea of Europe.
