Guest programmesEdit

Radio 1 regularly allocates a limited amount of airtime for the transmission of so-called "guest programmes": that is to say, programmes produced by associations and organizations representing faith and other socio-philosophical communities recognized by the Flemish Government as having the right to make such broadcasts.[1] At the present time (February 2014) these are:

  • Centraal Israëlitisch Consistorie van België – representing Belgian Judaism
  • Evangelische Radio en Televisie Omroep – Evangelical Christian broadcaster
  • Gezinsbond – defending the interests of the family
  • Humanistisch-Vrijzinnige Vereniging – representing secularism and free thought

  • Moslim Televisie en Radio Omroep – Muslim broadcasting organization
  • Orthodoxe Kerk in België – the Orthodox Church in Belgium
  • Protestantse Omroep – Protestant Christian broadcaster
