"May we bother you in the coming months", that question Luk Alloo asked earlier this year to several interesting Flemish people who are very much in the news. And most of them said yes wholeheartedly. Together with his camera team, he was for months the shadow of Studio 100 boss Gert Verhulst, success author Pascale Naessens, columnist Jan Mulder and top chef Sergio Herman, among others. Luk asks them about their work, their lives and takes them to places in their past that are still important to them. Television that will adjust your own image of these famous people anyway.


ETA, el final del silencio

El 7 de junio de 1968, ETA asesinaba al Guardia Civil José Pardines. El 3 de mayo de 2018, un comunicado de la banda terrorista anunciaba la disolución de sus estructuras. Entre esas dos fechas, 50 años de terror, miedo, dolor, treguas, negociaciones y 826 muertes. Jon Sistiaga nos sitúa cara a cara ante el cambio político y social que ha tenido lugar en el medio siglo de existencia de ETA, realizando un homenaje a las diferentes víctimas del terrorismo que azotó a nuestro país. Contaremos sus historias individuales y colectivas, y a través de sus ojos entenderemos mejor el conflicto y la fortaleza y valentía de la sociedad española, que sumadas a las investigaciones policiales y a los errores de los terroristas, sumaron la fuerza necesaria para que el fin de la banda fuese posible. Porque, afortunadamente, por fin se puede hablar.
