In the fall of 2014, Croatian Radiotelevision started a new project on its HTV3 channel. “Prekid programa zbog čitanja” is a series which, in a fifteen month long cycle, presents about sixty writers and their works. Each of the 170 episodes is a stand-alone programme which puts the emphasis on the author who reads short passages from his/her prose, a short selection from a collection of poems, excerpts from travelogues, autobiographical prose, essays , dramas, correspondence … Each episode is a kind of mini-portrait. The series has current value because it represents the present moment of Croatian literary scene, but more importantly, it has historical value as well, since the writers and Croatian literature of the moment are recorded for the future. It is a record of the current moment, saved for the future.
