Return of a show removed from the TV 4.5 years ago

February 15, 2019

Cable television channel Top has announced that in April it will relaunch broadcasts of formerly extremely popular show “Impression of the Week”, which was cancelled four and a half years ago by the then-B92 TV (now O2 TV).

It is believed that the show, authored by journalist Olja Bećković, was originally cancelled due to political pressure.

In an interview for portal Cenzolovka, Bećković said that she will invite public figures to appear in the show who were previously guests of her programme, but who have in the meantime been banned from appearing on the biggest television channels. She announced that she will also invite President Aleksandar Vučić, despite considering that he was behind the B92 ban.

“Impression of the Week” was first broadcast in 1991 on local Belgrade channel TV Studio B, after which – from 2002 to 2014 – it was shown on TV B92.

Cable channel Top is owned by company United Media, which also owns TV N1. The new programming schedule of this channel also includes the morning programme “Mentalno razgibavanje” [Mental Stretching], whose authors also previously claimed to have been removed
