Happy World TV Day!
TV companies around the world celebrate World Television Day on 21 November to remind us that TV makes a difference in people’s lives. As part of the annual United Nations initiative, a 30 second-spot will be broadcast on-air and shared online worldwide. The clip will be adapted and translated into many languages. The topic of 2020 edition is “TV makes a difference”. The theme shows how our medium has made and will continue to make a difference in society by putting the spotlight on racial injustice, hate speech, the pressing climate issues and the support TV has provided to people and businesses throughout the continuing COVID-19 crisis.
