Today is the anniversary of one of the masters of Russian television Eduard Sagalaev. It was he who led the youth edition of the Central television and was one of the originators of the legendary programs "Look" and "12th floor".
He said that his television appearance is the result of a chain of coincidences. By chance, he moved from Samarkand to Tashkent, he worked in Newspapers and radio, accidentally became a Komsomol worker and went to Moscow. And maybe that Sagalaev Junior team DH and restructuring is also a coincidence. But these live battles on TV before. Program "12th floor". Of the genre the talk show is not yet known, but intuitively went to him.
The first final analytical "7 days" and "12th floor", was closed by orders from above. But "the View" has survived. And if closed, it is something would come up. But time has changed the way that allowed two good crazy: Sagalaeva and Ted Turner, founder of CNN, to create Russia's first private TV channel. Entertainment, Atlantic bloom. Gave him the channel and broadcast frequency, which was assigned to special services.
Now the country's 300 channels, proudly said Sagalaev, now head of the national Association of broadcasters. He's still experimenting, film, broadcasts on the channel "Psychology 21". And trying not to give offense to small regional TV channels, considering that is where the source of manpower for a large TV. And now they need to "create opportunities."
