Television enters the scene from today to liven up the most homely Easter, the first confined, with content related to these days, and others more novel. The 1 premieres tonight of Holy Thursday at 10:05 p.m. the first two chapters of the eight that make up the miniseries ‘The name of the rose’, based on the novel by Umberto Eco -which also generated a film with Sean Connery from star-, and starring John Turturro. And tomorrow at 4:00 pm he broadcasts the 1956 classic ‘The Ten Commandments’, typical of these dates. This will be followed by another classic of the classics: ‘Spartacus’, on Sunday at 16:00.
In addition, La 2 follows the Holy Offices from Rome, both today and tomorrow, at 5:55 p.m., and on Saturday, at 9:00 p.m. And it also does the same with the Stations of the Cross from the Italian capital (tomorrow at 9:00 p.m.), and the Mass on Easter Sunday and the Urbi et Orbi Blessing from the Vatican (on Sunday, from 10:55 a.m. ).
Although in Easter, Thirteen takes the cake. The open channel, accustomed to religious programming and classic cinema, has a varied grill that includes since the re-broadcast today of the landing of the Legion and in Malaga and the subsequent transfer of the Christ of the Good Death of 2018 (12:10 p.m.) hours), to films such as ‘The Last Days of Pompeii’ (1:55 p.m.), ‘The Sword and the Cross’ (3:45 p.m.) and ‘King of Kings’ (9:30 p.m.). And so it continues tomorrow, where in addition to the religious events, it broadcasts at 15:15 ‘Sodom and Gomorrah’, before dismissing the day with the Way of the Cross from Rome (21:00).
But they could not miss the processions, even if it is delayed. So TVE yesterday launched a portal (www.rtve.es/semanasanta) that collects outstanding videos and audios of the processions that have been broadcast in recent years, and in which previously unpublished contents of this religious celebration, such as the 1967 Procession of the Reclining Christ and Miserere de Zamora. Among the most recent processions, the portal features the 2019 one from Medina del Campo, the 2018 ones from Malaga, and the 2017 ones from Alcalá de Henares and Cuenca , in addition to the celebration of the Via Crucis in the Colosseum in Rome in recent years.
On the other hand, tomorrow is the turn of Gestmusic, the producer of ‘OT’, with the launch of ‘Burradas’, an interview ‘docushow’ presented by Àngel Llàcer. In the format (at 7:00 p.m. on the Gestmusic YouTube channel), Llàcer travels a route with his guests on the back of a donkey, and he will also have a meeting with them live through Instagram. This time it will be with Noemí Galera, director of the ‘OT’ academy.
Other spaces are committed to normality, such as the Movistar trio ‘Late Motiv en casa’, presented by Andreu Buenafuente, ‘La Resistencia’, led by David Broncano, and ‘LocoMundo’, which has Quequé in charge, and who is going to record new deliveries. And the same goes for ‘El Hormiguero: Stay at home’, by Pablo Motos, which has found a formula to continue gathering almost three million viewers.
