“Not more each week on television throughout the season, but half. And then you know. The beginning of the end. Clears the memory of the Netherlands on television.” The presenter does in the video, a call to the viewers: “If you want Other Times should remain what it is, share this message.”

A spokesman of the NPO wants nothing quiet about the austerity plans for Other Times. In a statement, state: “NPO is with the broadcasters talking about the refresh of the programming, and we must take into account a significant savings. History remains an important part of NPO 2. Now We are talking with the NTR to strengthen our educational platform Focus, in which history and science has a prominent place.”
