Golden Beggar goes to Balkan

THE MAIN prize of the local Golden Beggar television festival, annually taking place at the eastern Slovak city of Košice, was awarded to Cacak television from Serbia and Montenegro for their film White Village, the news agency TASR reported.

The international jury selected the winning title out of 44 final programmes from nine different countries. The film was an exemplary piece of journalism reporting on a dispute between inhabitants of a small village and a large company mining calcite nearby that affected their lives.

The festival is the first and the oldest competition of local and town television stations in Europe. Over 160 people from 28 countries participated this year.
