Jorge de Esteban Memories of the Fundación

Jorge de Esteban interviewed by Íñigo Alfonso

This new initiative takes place in the form of a live radio talk that is broadcast live on our web page (Radio March). The host is the journalist Íñigo Alfonso, who has worked at Radio Nacional de España (RNE) since 2001, where he has performed different roles at RNE in the areas of economy and national news information, directing the late news program “24 Horas” (24 Hours) and coordinating the parliamentary area of the news services. He is presently co-director of the lunchtime TVE News.

Emulating a radio interview, with its own signature tune, these interviews feature outstanding personalities from different cultural areas who were one-time recipients of a scholarship or grant from the Fundación, which they used to begin their careers or progress professionally in their respective disciplines. With the descriptions of their experiences, the Fundación Juan March aims to put the spotlight on their lives and careers and consequently portray the evolution of a country, capturing an image of Spain during the 1950s, 60s and 70s and projecting it on to the Spain of today. This is the explanation for the title of this activity, "Memories of the Fundación": a series of programs looking back on the origins of outstanding professional careers, as well as because the results of these scholarships were reflected in a final report (referred to as a “memoria” in Spanish) or thesis deposited at the Fundación.
