El radar

El radar is a Colombian current affairs programme broadcast on weeknights at 23:00 on Caracol TV.

It is presented since October 2009 by D'arcy Quinn or its director Dario Fernando Patino (before that its presenter was Jorge Alfredo Vargas. Most episodes feature one, two, or three interviews with politicians, analysts, artists, businesspeople, etc. The interviewers are well-known Colombian journalists from radio, television, and print media.

Twice a week the comical duo Tola y Maruja appear to mock Colombian politics and society. Its section on El radar was nominated for the India Catalina award (part of the Cartagena Film Festival) for Best Journalism and/or Opinion Programme in 2008.

On early 2009, its Monday time slot was filled with repeats of Septimo dia. During some weeks in May and June 2009 it was moved to 23:30 to make room for the Telemundo telenovela La novela basada en Sin tetas no hay paraiso, but after complaints from the viewers (and jokes by Tola y Maruja during the programme), it was returned to its initial time slot.
