This week I was invited to assist to a meeting on language, identity and fiction, organized by the Institut d’Estudis Catalans. I could be at the first session on television in which Jaume Cabré (writer and scriptwriter), Núria Comas (language assessor), Carles Gené (executive producer) and Mila Segarra (expert) presented their thoughts.
It was an interesting meeting touching some of the recurrent topics regarding Catalan language and television fiction and almost exclusively focused on TV3. Some of these topics were dialect presence in the series, territorial representation, realism and resemblance or the production strains and conditionings.
Although the debate and discussion was fruitful, I saw that most of the matters that were the main focus five or eight years ago are still in the professionals and analysts’ agenda. I had the impression that we all should move on to new questions and aspects.
