This week "Comando al sol" will show the different ways in which Spanish families spend their holidays. We shall meet families who travel with “their homes on their backs" by settling in at a camp-site or at a National Park. We shall discover cheap places at the beach where families can spend the summer. Other families prefer to spend the summer at the house of a friend or a relative. Others are obliged to stay in their home town or city.
Spaniards Around the World
"Españoles en el Mundo" (Spaniards Around the World) goes to the heart of the Mediterranean in order to rediscover Sardinia. This island, which is famous for its beaches and its cuisine, is also packed with history, based on a legacy that stretches back four centuries under the Crown of Aragón. Five Spaniards will show us the peaceful life that can be enjoyed on the island, where, in certain marvelous corners such as Alguero and Cagliari, time really has stood still.
The dog in the manger
The film is based on the comedy by Lope de Vega of the same name. It tells the story of Diana (Emma Suárez), the Countess of Belflor, a shrewd, impulsive and intelligent young woman. She has fallen in love with Teodoro (Carmelo Gómez), her secretary, but she discovers that he is already betrothed to lady Marcela (Ana Duato). Driven by jealousy and envy, she devotes all her energies into separating the lovers. 'El perro del hortelano' (the Dog in the Manger) is the last film directed by Pilar Miró before her death and was awarded seven Goya awards in 1997, including the award for best director and leading actress.
