In 1998 Norilsk residents watched Severny Gorod first time

In 1998, for the first time, viewers saw on their screens a screensaver of the Severny Gorod (Northern City) TV company, which became the fourth non-state TV company on the local air.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The name Severny Gorod was invented by the first general director of the television company, Igor Astapov. His authority in the journalistic circles of Norilsk was absolutely indisputable, behind him were the positions of editor-in-chief of the city newspaper Zapolyarnaya Pravda, a couple of commercial publications and chairmanship of the State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company Norilsk.

Severny Gorod looked solid – from the quality of screensavers to the level of news and author’s programs. The TV company started with news. Every weekday at 11 p.m., the NID program was broadcast, but the abbreviation known to every city dweller meant not Norilsk Industrial District, but News. Reporting Details. They were led by Olga Filyurina, Alexander Krivenkov, and later by Alexey Kan and Yulia Fotchenko.

Then author’s programs appeared: Wings, paws and tails – about animals, Mini – about mini-football, Rock Panorama – about music, Curtain – about the theater, Special Reportage. And every weekday morning began with a two-hour morning broadcast.

Denis Nemtinov, Anna Zhuravleva, Olga Litvinenko were special correspondents for Severny Gorod, Rafael Bulatov, Sergey Tikhonin, Alexander Elovikov were cameramen, Andrey Yaroshenko and Alexander Zhuravlev were directors.

In the History Spot’s previous publication, we told that in the year of the 40th anniversary of Norilsk, a new point appeared on its map – Oganer.
