Dictionary of Dutchness


The Nederlandse Omroep Stichting (Dutch broadcasting foundation) is the country’s public broadcasting organisation which provides news and sports coverage and is sometimes compared to Britain’s BBC. Unlike the other Dutch public broadcasters, funding and air time for the NOS is not based on its membership (it doesn’t have any). NOS was formed in 1969 and employs 700 journalists. It’s flagship is the evening tv news show at 8pm.
