Book on the beginnings of Cuban Television to be presented

Havana, Oct 6 (Prensa Latina) The Fayad Jamís bookstore, located in Havana's Historic Center, will host on October 11 the presentation of the literary work Memorias de un olvido, a look at the foundational stage of Cuban Television, from 1950 to 1962.

According to the Cuban Book Institute, the meeting, scheduled for 3:00 p.m. local time, will promote a dialogue on this three-volume work published by Ediciones En Vivo and authored by José Raúl Estol (1928-2020), winner of the 2012 National Television Award.

Participating in the event will be the director of the publishing house, Norma Gálvez, film critic and researcher Mario Naito and journalist and critic Fernando Rodríguez.

We hope that this study we now comment on will serve as inspiration and guide to present future audiovisual researchers and scholars, not only as a source of data, but also as a model of systematization and presentation of the results of a research carried out by a professional of the stature of master José Raúl Estol, suggests the prologue, written by researcher and professor Mario Masvidal.

Founder of Cuban Television, José Raúl Estol was a Telecommunication Engineer and who had taught at the Faculty of Audiovisual Media Arts of the University of the Arts.
