Last two programs will broadcast on Tuesday, July 19 and Monday, July 25.

Sponsored by the U.S. Embassy in Montevideo, the Uruguayan cable network VTV will broadcast a series on bilateral relations between the two countries beginning on Monday, July 4, at 8 pm.

A team of Uruguayan journalists traveled to the United States in order to interview Uruguayans and Americans working in areas linked to bilateral relations. To that effect, VTV journalists Jorge García Alberti and Sebastián Ferrín visited the cities of New York, Dallas, Seattle and Washington DC accompanied by the U.S. Embassy's Information Specialist in Montevideo Rubek Orlando.

The series will feature interviews with key officials such as Roger Noriega, Assistant U.S. Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs; U.S. Ambassador to Uruguay Martin J. Silverstein; and the newly appointed Uruguayan Ambassador to the United States, Carlos Gianelli. The TV team also interviewed legislators, entrepreneurs, teachers, musicians, athletes, students, artists and writers. The series will air every Monday in July at 8 pm.

This project was made possible by the support of the U.S. Department of State, the Foreign Press Centers in Washington and New York, and the Voice of America.
