The interviewees are or have been all connected to the VARA current affairs programme ACHTER HET NIEUWS. The interviews were made as part of Prengers’ PhD research into the development of journalistic conventions within current affairs programmes on television in the 1960s, particularly VARA’s ACHTER HET NIEUWS and KRO’s BRANDPUNT.

On this theme she earlier wrote ‘Van familiemagazine naar actualiteitenrubriek. KRO’s BRANDPUNT in March 1963’, in: Jaarboek Mediageschiedenis 2, Amsterdam: Stichting Mediageschiedenis, 1990, p.157-186 and ‘Rode balletjes’ en cinéma vérité. De VARA, de PvdA en de nieuws- en actualiteitenprogramma’s in de jaren vijftig en 1960′, in: Henk Kleijer e.a. (ed.), Tekens en Teksten. Cultuur, communicatie en maatschappelijke veranderingen vanaf de late middeleeuwen’, Amsterdam: Amsterdam University Press, 1992, p.158-173.
