 Octavian Belu and Mariana Bitang, guests of the best* Romanian TV show

* as considered by the Romanian Television Authority "CNA", which have announced few days ago that this program will receive a special Prize from this authority. We may consider the Prize being a reward for the quality of show or the obeying attitude, favoring the ruling party-psd- and his supporters-or both. Trying desperate to go up few points before late November elections, the actual Bucharest regime have tried hard past few weeks to push Belu enter politics on their side-Belu denied, now they pretend and push him, at least to become the President of the Romanian Olympic Comiteee-which is connected to Government activity and this can bring some more favorable attitude from Romanian people to a insolvent regime. They have used Nadia too, to back up their Bucharest mayor candidate(of the ruling party) in June local elections-but that candidate failed to win.

[oct 10] Romanian Antena1 TV station-the second biggest Romanian TV station, after the free, public one- have aired Saturday afternoon, after a week of TV advertisements, their weekly program called "My Romania"( "Romania Mea").

The program is hosted by a famous (and disputed for his "sweet reportages"-favoring the ruling party and kiss-in-the ass attitude with the Bucharest regime) journalist, Emil Hurezeanu (former US sponsored-Radio Free Europe journalist, until the closure of the radio station).

Antena 1 TV station has become a very "friendly"station for the Bucharest regime, after the agreement between the political party of the station owner -Voiculesu and his leftist P.U.R. Party, called often by Bucharest (latest) independent newspaper "Evenimentul Zilei" as "the TV party" (because his large coverage on the owner TV station, rather that a real political life).

The show "My Romania", consist mainly from a walk on the streets of the reporter and his guest, mainly in Bucharest, the show host Hurezeanu asking different question to his guest.

This time, the reporter have had two guests instead of one, Octavian Belu and Mariana Bitang, and also another exception has been made, the guests (Belu and Bitang) having just a short walk with the host, around Deva Gymnastics School (instead of city streets) and visiting the Deva Olympic team hotel.

In the text scrolling boxes printed on the screen during the show, first surprise: they had a mention about Belu status, admitting (for the first time-as a first hand info rather than tabloids speculations, in Romania as far as we know) that he is divorced.

Octavian Belu: "I have spent at Deva 24 years and a half"; "local people are very nice, I like that they keep their promises". "Deva gymnastics school have benefited from being isolate:we could focus more on our work, we were closer to local community leaders and our day-to day problem's were solved much easier and faster" (than in a big city).

During the show, Octavian Belu and Mariana Bitang took a walk with the reporter around the buildings of Deva Gymnastics School . Children were playing on the school sport arena.
The reporter said to Belu that those little girls looked at him with respect and admiration. Belu: " Silivas is a 'product' of local Deva gymnastics school. Many girls came here and few of them finally will succeed."

On the background, a small hill dominate Deva city.
The images shows a Holyywod-alike , huge mark of the city name, mounted behind the hill top.

The "team" (Belu, Bitang and reporter) goes into the buildings which host the girls mini hotel. Octavian Belu explain that back in 1980-1985, girls from the Olympic team use to live in same building with the girls from the local gym school. Later, another building was ready for them exclusively.

Octavian Belu jokes about it, saying it consider the building as a single-people hotel, ones which were plenty build in former communist Romania (almost near factory have had one, to accommodate workers; single rooms apartment, by single meaning one small room to live in for years, with one bath on each floor).

The Deva-complex building, where the Olympic team live is far better, with air-conditioned in the rooms and spacious bathrooms for each small apartment. At the entrance, a shoes-support with many levels, for leaving the shoes when outside is rain season (all corridors are carpeted).
