Nostalgic News

NOS logoContradictio in termino, or not really? The Dutch Broadcasting Foundation (NOS) started with a new initiative that I found quite interesting. As of this month, their online channel will broadcast the news of ten years ago. Meaning that today I can watch the news of 7th January 1999.

I watched it yesterday, and it was fun to see how the news was different, the anchors spoke more official and dressed very formal. Of course it is also interesting to see how some things haven’t changed over the course of years (trouble in Israel, the cannabis usage in NL is moderate, and sadly how rebels kill people in Congo). If you want to have a look yourself, you can go here, it is broadcasted every day at 12:30 and 21:30.

  1. Here, in Romania, they “sell” the paper from 20 year ago. Actually they give it free if you buy a newspaper. 20 years ago, was the first years of Romanian democracy.
