Temps d'aventura (Time for adventure) is a programme in Catalan made by Televisió de Catalunya - the Catalan public television corporation - dedicated to open-air sports or adventure sports or outdoor activities. It was first broadcast during the 2002 season following on from other programmes that had dealt with the same subject -L'aventura (1993–2000) - and winter sports - Temps de neu (1985 - ).

It is a weekly programme and is broadcast on Thursday evenings by Canal 33 from May to November and can also be watched on the international channel TVCi. Most programmes are repeated over the weekend.

Since the 2003 season it has been broadcast in stereo.

From the 2008 season onwards it has been broadcast in 16:9 format and with subtitles in Catalan for the deaf. The DTTV broadcast also includes English subtitles. This makes it the first programme produced in-house by Televisió de Catalunya that can be watched in English.

TV3 is Televisió de Catalunya's first and main channel. All the people of Catalonia and Catalan Countries is potential viewer.

Contents[edit]

The programme normally consists of a report, with a duration of between 10 and 20 minutes on average, and several sections that have changed over the seasons.

The reports are about activities that take place in the mountains, in the air or on water and are designed to highlight the activities of people who do the sport.

Most of the reports can be categorised into one of these four general groups:

  • relatively unknown sporting activities
  • profiles of outstanding sportsmen and women in different fields
  • competitions
  • in-house creations

The programme includes or has included the following sections:

  • racons (ideas for discovering new routes)
  • nius (short news items)
  • i a + ... (short reports lasting 3–5 minutes)
  • alerta (safety advice from the GRAE of the Firefighterss of the Generalitat)
  • embat (news about water sports)
  • vici-bici (news about sports involving the bicycle)
  • en forma (tips for getting fit given by instructors from DiR)
  • aparador (recommendations about equipment given by specialised shops)
  • musical (reports accompanied by music)
  • somni d'aventura (competition to win a sports trip to a place of interest)

Internet[edit]

The programme has always been closely linked to the Internet and this has increased over the seasons. It started in 2002 when the programme opened its own web page.

In 2003 video streaming began and has continued apart from short interruptions until now. It was only the second TV3 programme to incorporate this.

In 2006 the podcasting of reports began, making it the first TV3 programme and one of the first in Europe to offer this option.

In 2008 a streaming and a podcast version subtitled in English was begun. There is also a streaming version with subtitles for the deaf. Altogether, the programme can be accessed on the Internet in 6 different ways:

  • streaming of the programme in Catalan
  • streaming of the programme in Catalan with English subtitles
  • streaming of the programme in Catalan with Catalan subtitles
  • streaming of the report in Catalan
  • podcast of the report in Catalan
  • podcast of the report in Catalan with English subtitles

In 2008 the programme also incorporated a map browser using Google Maps which allows users to zoom in on the geographical area where the reports were made and makes it possible to view the complete report broadcast by the programme.

In 2009 simplifies the subtitles system. The programme upload reports to YouTube to be available the automatic translation to many languages. The quality improve and a HD 720 version is available too.

Most viewer participation is carried out via the web page: photo, video, competitions, posts on the forum, answers to questions, etc.
