The globally televised song contest, Eurovision insists it’s not political. But the most recent chapter in a decades-long history of political tension behind the event’s glitzy backdrop suggests a different story.

This weekly News programme is produced by the Franco-German broadcaster ARTE and made available in 8 languages through a European media partnership formed by El País (ES), Gazeta Wyborcza (PL), Internazionale (IT), Kathimerini (GR), Le Soir (BE), Telex (HU) in coordination with ARTE. The project has been made possible with EU funding within the framework of the „European Media Platforms” preparatory action.
