Finnish TV to unexpectedly broadcast Roxette documentary

Finnish TV channel Nelonen is unexpectedly broadcasting part 1 of a 2-part Roxette documentary, titled "Roxette past and present", today at 0.35 EET (UTC+2). This 10-minute documentary was not listed in any Finnish TV magazine, and it still isn't listed on the channel's web site. However, another TV web site tells a bit about the documentary. It's a repeat of an interview made by Finnish journalist Tino Singh, and was previously shown in July 1999. At least TDR missed that broadcast totally.

  Update: According to Nelonen's representative, the documentary was only broadcast to fill the gap between two programmes. They have no plans to show the part 2 of this documentary. The person I spoke with apologized and said that in the future they will try to avoid using multi-part programmes as fillers if they are not planning to show the other parts, too. You can send feedback on their decision to [email protected].
