REDES is a scientific TV program emitted from Spain during 9 years. We have recently analysed the data of audiences to investigate witch kind of scientific contents our audience prefers. We haven’t found big differences between general topics but some significant and interesting conclusions: people love physics and cosmology. Psychology topics are also very successful. Genetics and biotechnology usually have low audiences, on the contrary of programs related to evolution. Programs about technology and social science have in general the lowest audiences.
