RTP 1 and RTP 2 (20/08/1980)


another schedule of RTP 1 and RTP 2 is about to be reviewed and get an opinion later. This time, we’re going back to the early 80’s as we see the schedule for Saturday, 20th Augist 1980, the day american born singer Joe Dassin passed away:

18:30: Sumário (first news of the day (and most probably, summary of the schedule for the channel made by a on-vision continuity person) in 5 minutes. On weekdays, that’s when the regular programing really started in here)

18:35Os cinco (original title: “The Famous Five”, adaptated from the book anthology of same name by writter Enid Blyton. The series in question was the 1978-1979 series that became highly sucessfull in here and the episode for that day was the 2nd part of the “Five Go to Smuggler’s Top” story. In another words: the 5th episode)

19:05: País, país (regional news. Nowadays, the format has another name called “Portugal em Directo”)

19:30Museu guiado (lifestyle magazine whose objective was to visit some of the most famous museums in Portugal. On that day, we would visit the ethnographic section of the Museu Carlos Machado in Ponta Delgada, Azores) (C)

20:00: Telejornal (main news bulletin that reverted back to its original name after adopting in 19781979 the name “Jornal RTP-1”) (C)

20:30Geografia humana (documentary magazine. On the day, we’d watch the second part of it) (C)

21:05: O tempo (the weather broadcast for the next day) (C)

21:10Jogos sem fronteiras (aka. “Jeux sans frontières”. Much was its importance back then that even a special would be made for each portuguese team that would participate in the following week. On the day, the center of this short special was the team from Figueira da Foz that would participate in the 7th program to be held in Diest, Belgium. More about the 1980 edition of JSF: http://jsfnetfrance.free.fr/?page_id=11197 ) (C)

21:25: Vamos jogar no Totobola (a program on which we’d find out the results on one more extraction of Totobola, a lottery game concerning football (for example, Spain has its own football lottery, La Quinela) on which, in order to get big prizes in cash, you’d have to guess up to 13 fixtures correctly (nowadyas, we have 14). Before that, we’d have a short documentary) (C)

21:45: A vida de Cole Porter (documentary about the life and work of american songwriter Cole Porter: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cole_Porter ) (C)

23:50Suplemento cinematográfico (movie magazine with the latest informations about the world of cinema) (C)

00:25: 24 (Vinte e quatro) Horas (late news bulletin with the resume of the news of the day and also the latest news, when needed. After that, it’s closedown time) (C)

20:30: Sinhazinha Flô (brazilian soap-opera produced by Rede Globo in 19771978, adaptated from three José de Alencar novels: “Til”, “A viuvinha” e “O sertanejo”, centered in the year of 1880, a year slavery was in process of not existing anymore and whose story deranges from easy-going to difficult love stories, “bang-bang” fights and also the search of original roots, the latter one being centered on the main character, Flô (Bete Mendes), that was actually adopted by the coronel Gervásio Campelo (Castro Gonzaga) and his wife Ermelinda (Ana Lúcia Torre), therefore she wasn’t their daughter by birth. On that day, we were on the 63th and 64th episodesThis soap-opera became quite known for having also its transmissons on a Saturday, something not common back then: this was the first one to have it transmitted in addition to weekdays. The second one would be also a 1977 production from Rede Globo, “Dona Xepa”, transmitted in late-1980 in here and it was the last one for a while. Only a few years recently, we have soap-operas (of our own and in other channels) that also transmit on Saturday and sometimes even on Sunday in addition to weekdays. In addition, this was also the first soap-opera that transmitted two episodes at the same time instead of only one, something that was planned only halfway through its transmission) (C)

21:30: Informação/2 (Dois) (main news bulletin of the channel, done in a different way than the RTP 1 news bulletin) (C)

22:00No grande mundo do desporto (sports documentary)

23:00Documento/80 (Oitenta) (news magazine. After that, it’s closedown time) (C)

(C) – means program in colour (except programs, movies and series originally made in black and white). Despite official colour transmissions on 7th March 1980, we’d have to wait for the 2nd half of the year to have the full schedule on colour

Nice list of programmes, from documentaries of lifestyle magazines, soap-opera and information. Not the best one though, as there are only two big highlights: the special concerning a forthcoming edition of “Jeux sans frontières” and the soap-opera “Sinhazinha Flô”

A final treat for you – the opening of the 1977 brazilian soap-opera “Sinhazinha Flô” from Rede Globo:

Thank you,
