Spanish Radio and Television (RTVE)

The Spanish series have gained great international relevance, the size and quality of their productions compete with those of the United Kingdom or the United States.

To access them, just go to their website and search for the series that interests you, it is not necessary to register or enter any payment information. We recommend, among others, these productions:

The Ministry of Time

This series is one of the most successful in Spain, with a legion of fans eagerly awaiting the 4th season. The Ministry of Time is a secret department of the government of Spain, its job is to protect the continuity of history as we know it, since any modification could have disastrous consequences. The many historical figures of Spain and the world from different periods of time make the show extremely attractive: kings, writers, painters, dictators, Nazis and more.

Cuentame cómo pasó

With almost 20 years on the air it has become a classic, the series follows the life of the Alcántaras, a middle-class family from which the most important changes in the contemporary history of Spain are observed in retrospect.

With just 9 chapters, it is capable of capturing the attention of the viewer, the role of Jack Taylor is played by Iain Glen, an actor we remember from numerous productions, among which Game of Thrones stands out, where he gave life to the loyal Jorah Mormont.
