Tastes like More, the aftermath of all of Holland Bakes that since 2016 is transmitted is deleted from the programming of Omroep MAX. That confirms omroepbaas Jan Slagter Thursday in a call with NU.nl.
“It is not the fault of the NPO, there may be nothing to do,” says Slagter. “It’s because of the laws at that time by Sander Dekker, has been devised.”
It was the policy of the Entertainment of the NPO, which includes that the titles in two consecutive years, too little to be viewed by hard-to-reach groups (kijkersgroepen of 13-49 years) of television can be met. These include a Taste for More, The Graham Norton Show Dynamo Live at the O2, as you can read in the report that the NPO made about the year 2018.
“The question is: how to proceed. And we need to look at a new format that may have a wider audience appeal and which does meet the requirements,” says Slagter.
“I will continue to oppose programs that are deleted because there are mostly older people are watching. That doesn’t feel good, that is the age discrimination problem”, decision Slagter. He let us know that he also has engaged with the VVD, the party also took the initiative to the legislation from which this decision arose.
A spokesperson for Broadcaster MAX lets continue to NU.nl know that the broadcaster hopes to still be a season of hunger for More to be allowed to produce. “Because the decision is a result of the new Law, there will be therein what need to change. If people hold on to this legislation, then comes MAX with an alternative napraatprogramma of all of Holland Bakes a wider audience.”
In Tastes to More discuss presenter André van Duin’s last broadcast with three well-known Dutch people. The program pulled in the last season an average of over 600,000 viewers.
