Redes (Networks in English) is the longest running popular science program on Spanish TV. Since 1996, many of the world’s leading scientists have appeared on it to talk about the most ground-breaking ideas and research that have expanded the frontiers of scientific knowledge.
Broadcast every week by Spanish state channel TVE and on TVE’s international channel, Redes has an audience of millions of viewers in Spain and Latin America. Eduard Punset, its presenter and host, has interviewed hundreds of scientists from all over the world, especially in the US and the UK, and he is now presenting, with the support of Telvent, a selection of programmes from the series translated into English which can be freely accessed on this website.
ScienceNetworks was made possible by an agreement between Telvent and Fundación Redes para la Ciencia. Redes’ adaptation to the English-speaking audience was done by SmartPlanet, a production company based in Barcelona, Spain –a young group of scientists and journalists who also co-produces Redes along with TVE.
