Un siglo de canciones
In summer 1999, Canal 9 gave a debut to Un siglo de canciones, a weekly programme that was a grand musical show made up of the best songs from the last hundred years. The viewers from the Valencian region itself created an original hit parade that varied according to the weeks.
The singer Lolita and one of the liveliest of presenters, Juan y Medio, led this production which was highly popular with audiences of all ages. Directed by Toni Cruz and Josep M. Mainat, Un siglo de canciones was able to produce, through popular action, a list of the best songs of the last hundred years. The majority of them were recalled on the programme by their original singers. Versions were made of the other tunes by the programme’s team of singers, or they were used as a soundtrack to show historical images. They were even recalled by means of a human chain, whereby in groups or in solos, they remembered different verses of the song.
Another section on Un siglo de canciones was a family quiz based on musical questions and a series of images of different historical events that the contestants had to provide an exact year for. It was an amusing and entertaining way to review the most important events of the last hundred years, something that was also undertaken by showing some videos that recorded other curious events such as the appearance of the Biscuter vehicle or the arrival in Spain of tourist number 10 million. A modern set and a professional dance corps gave the programme the stage setting befitting a turn of the century.
