TitleORTF, RTL, EUR 1, Anonymous
Extent1 outsize item
DescriptionPoster in response to the May 1968 student revolution in France of a green TV robot wearing a 'de Gaulle' hat, stamped Atelier Populaire ex-Ecole des Beaux Arts.

Text: ORTF is the acronym for 'Office de Radiodiffusion Television Francaise', and RTL and EUR 1 are the radio stations 'Radio Luxembourg' and 'Europe One Radio'.

Broadcasting was strictly influenced by the government. Many posters satirised press complicity with the authorities, or their censored reporting of the student demonstrations. This image is printed on the reverse, though the poster also appeared in ordinary format.
