A fondo (Spanish: literally "In Depth") was a Spanish television interview program hosted by Joaquín Soler Serrano that was broadcast on the Televisión Española (TVE) network. The program's run lasted from 1976 until 1981, for a total of 48 shows.

The program's mission statement, according to its opening title cards, was to interview "the leading figures in letters, the arts, and sciences." Beginning with Jorge Luis Borges, who was the guest on the first episode of Al fondo aired on September 8, 1976, the program played host to some of the Spanish speaking world's most respected intellectuals of the day.

In 1976 critics awarded the show a Premio Ondas in the "national television" category.[1]
