Dictionary of Dutchness


The Algemene Programma Raad (general programme council) is a legal body set up to advise cable television provider UPC on which programmes to include in its output for the greater Amsterdam area. The 13-member council draws up its plans every year, though all it can actually do is make recommendations. The final decision rests with UPC, making the APR pretty redundant really.
