"the SVT responds after sharp criticism"
"”On the trail” has played out its role."
"It mean frågekonstruktören Jens Fagerlund."
"I do not understand why people put up longer, and becomes more or less desecrated," he says, and criticises the issues in the program."
"”On the trail” has been broadcast on SVT since 1987. But now it is time for something new. It think Jens Fagerlund, who in a insändarartikel on DN, directs sharp criticism against the program."
"He means that the questions in this year's season is just too difficult, both for the viewers and participants."
" unlike previous years, I think the issues have become much more difficult. It is not possible to guess in the same way as one could in the past. It is simply not fun to sit on the couch and watch the program anymore, " says Jens Fagerlund to Nöjesbladet."
"– When, for and with the participants in the cages time after time says: ”Wow, what it this was hard”, so they seem not to think it is so much fun."
"Jens Fagerlund, who worked as a frågekonstruktör for a well-known frågesportsspel, mean that the current level can't even get a hint of where you are on the road during the rail travel."
"– Now it is just a supersvår mass of words that don't say anything. Also, the additional questions have been incredibly difficult and far-fetched. Now, I have not directly an example, but it has been very difficult to ache until an answer, even if you is normally gifted. In the past, it has in all cases been able to call in. I do not feel that it is possible in the year."
"the SVT: ”Heard it here every year”"
"Charles Franz, a producer for ”On the trail”, has worked with the program for six years. And he is used to criticism."
"– We have heard this every year. This will always, the questions become more difficult. At the same time, people say that it has become too easy. We have methods to test the questions so that we get a sensible mixture. Some of the questions we want to be difficult. Second, we want to be able to take. Then we'll not always to the 100%. But on a whole season you will see that the law gets about the points they usually get. It is fairly well like that anyway, " he says."
"According to Charles Franz, it is a constant balancing act with the program to appeal to a wide audience, with both interesting and instructive matters."
"– But our main way to work with it here is that fokusgruppa ask, we do this to test the level and see if they think that the issue is dead, or if they start on it. We do, of course, also an entertainment programme, " says Charles Franz."
"– in the case of Jens, we have not managed to catch him, but it is exactly what we are seeking. To make it difficult, interesting but also entertaining. But we are also very clear that we do a difficult quiz."
"”the Time for SVT to find something new”"
"Frågekonstruktören Jens Fagerlund says that he does not understand how people can voluntarily participate in the program. Charlez Franz is of a different opinion."
" I do not share the image at all. People will be happy to help us and compete. They have fun and they are happy that they are with. The fact is that you must check on the programs. They manage the clues and crack many of the questions. Then it is one and the other teams get a headwind in among but on the whole, the law makes good."
"Jens Fagerlund don't buy the argument and believes that the ”On the trail” played out its role. "
"– It has after all been around since 1987 and have gone on prime time, so I can imagine that it would be time for the SVT to find something new. Otherwise, the solution is for the SVT to see over frågekonstruktionerna. It is as I wrote in my letter to the editor, it is incredibly easy to write a difficult question. However, it is difficult to write an easy question. Are you sitting on the couch with family, friends, and maybe children, so to be at least 40% of the questions to be kind so that everyone should have an idea of what the answer is, assuming there is a good quality frågeställandet, " he says."
"Charles Franz believe, however, in more seasons of the program."
"– But to be too pompous, we have quite a lot of viewers who like the ”On track” and that comes back week after week. It is clear we are listening to them, and we start listening to the Jens. But it would have played out its role, I think probably we can say is to take in. "
"”On track” airs on Fridays in the SVT and SVT play at 20:00."
