20490Re: [Slovak-World] American shows/soaps on Slovak TV
- Mar 6, 2008HI JULIA -
Don't know if Dallas reruns are being shown on
Slovak TV - at one time it was so popular. I think
Slovak TV now has their own versions of soaps and
I do know last summer the whole country was
watching the Slovak version of a dancing competition -
the twist was each pair of participants was doing it
for someone in dire need, a girl who need facial
surgery, a family of 12 that needed a new roof, etc.
and they featured the participants interacting with
A really touching one was the middle aged mother
who was participating for her handicapped son in a
wheelchair to get some special schooling. She turned
out to be a marvelous dancer - along with a super
partner and won. Her son won some specialized training
at an outstanding technical school.
It was really interesting and after the competition
was over - the Slovak banks got in the act too and
donated money to the other persons in need.
We were visiting in a Slovak home for a few nights
and this was the big show! Everything stopped while
the family watched.
I really did enjoy the interaction of the
participants - the young hip couple visiting the 12
member family in a remote Slovak village, etc.
