For those of you accustomed with BBC iPlayer or other stream-on-demand video services, Spain’s national station RTV also lets you stream and watch Spanish TV series and programmes at high speed and quality for nothing.
While there’s a lot to choose from it’s well worth spending part of your learning day watching RTV’s brilliant “ciudades para el siglo XXI“ (cities for the 21st century) series.
Each episode (running at less than half an hour) takes you inside a different Spanish city and explains, in clear and simple language, the main features and parts of places like Salamanca, Madrid, Valencia and Seville. Some of the aerial and looping overhead shots they get of cathedrals, plazas and other monuments are pretty damn unreal. [My Spanish Adventure annotation]
