Canal 7 . Argentina
I work in media, so it’s interesting to me how television and radio function in other countries. Coincidentally enough my apartment in Buenos Aires, (or my rented apartment I should say,) was located at Las Heras and Aguero, not far from the Canal 7 studios. Canal 7, or TV Publica, is Argentina’s public television station, and its large headquarters and studio complex are on Avenida del Libertador, a wide boulevard traversing the northwest side of town.
I was on an afternoon walk passing the facility, and decided to give myself a self guided tour. As usual if you walk with a purpose, appear professional, and act like you belong somewhere you’re less likely to be questioned. Sometimes you can even attend White House parties.
I walked into the front door at Canal 7, past a cluster of folks standing by the door, and wandered around unimpeded for about a half hour. A couple of these pictures aren’t as clear as I’d like, since I took them as I was walking.
