Greek TV

I don't what's wrong any more. I've been struggling to correct some projects, listening to the TV in the backround. Eventually I stopped because what I was listening to distracted me (and all my students' homework would finish like being corrected by an alien...) so I decided to turn my attention to the documentary that was on that moment.

Immediately after the ending of a great and enlightning documentary about macroeconomy (http://www.exandasdocumentaries.com/), another one began (http://www.rwf.gr)about great ideas blooming in the middle of a financial crisis.

Anyway, the point is that is was about 11 o' clock in the evening when I started watching the first one, and about 1 when the second one finally finished. Why do they do that? Why don't they broadcast shows and documentaries of this kind earlier, so that everyone could watch them? Why all the great shows are being "censored", as if they were porn films, this late at night, or even later in the middle of the night? What are they afraid of? Of opening someone's mind and especially our children's?
