Telediario Montesol-Onliyou (Montesol – Onliyou Newscast) 
Length: 8 min 44 s

Created in 1977 and active until 1983, Video-Nou (from 1979, Servei de Vídeo Comunitari) was a pioneering group in Spain that spearheaded the use of portable video equipment. Among other things, it wanted to be a news and activist alternative to the single television outlet (Spanish Television [TVE]). Made up of professionals from very diverse spheres, it promoted the use of video as a medium for communication and social, cultural and educational stimulation. Among its projects, Telediario Montesol – Onliyou is a parody of the television newscast format. It emulates the comedic and satirical language of the radio programme El show de Montesol y Onliyú (The Montesol and Onliyú Show) made by the journalist Javier Montesol and broadcast on Radio Juventud.
