Signo y Pensamiento

CARRILLO HERNANDEZ, Adriana María  and  MONTANA IBANEZ, Ana María. Vertigo and fiction, a story told with images. tv News in Colombia from 1954 to 1970. Signo pensam. [online]. 2006, n.48, pp.135-147. ISSN 0120-4823.

This document compiles the history of tv News programs in Colombia from two main perspectives: on the one hand, the newsreel as a legacy of the cinema and other media, in terms of technology, format, and staff; on the other, the actual effect of new technologies in the work routines and changes suffered by the 'news' concept. We intend to show how the first stages of Colombian television were mainly an experimental activity whereby the tv journalist's profession was developed by the empirical performing of tasks, since the first journalism and communication schools only came into being in the 60's. We conclude that technology plays an essential role in the way events are narrated, and in how the 'news' concept is conceived in each of the historical moments dealt with herein.

Keywords : Television; cinema; history of Colombian television; mass media; tv News; film-news.
