The first channel airs several weekly magazine-style shows on arts and culture aimed at a more demanding audience. For over 20 years the TV show The Eighth Day [Osmi dan] has covered both contemporary and classical cultural events and trends, varying from film, performing arts, visual art, music, and cultural heritage.
The channel's other significant monthly TV shows about culture are the show Artificial paradise [Umetni raj] on film art and The Art of Play [Umetnost igre] on theatre. The show Traces [Sledi], produced together with TV Koper-Capodistria and RTV Slovenia, covers amateur and folk art from all the Slovene regions and is occasionally also produced by the regional TV Maribor. All TV shows can be found at RTV Slovenia's video archive website.
