New television series on science and technology
As of 15 January 2011, ETV1 began broadcasting “At the Top of the Pyramid”, a science program financed by the TeaMe programme, and “Rocket 69”, a science adventure for the young.
The series “At the Top of the Pyramid” is intended for the viewing pleasure of a wide audience in order to broaden and clarify our world view, so that we could understand the process happening around us and see the connexions and choices towards which the world is developing. In addition, we endeavour to answer the questions: how does science affect the average person and in what way does the work of scientists better our lives?
