The special broadcast of

RTL Boulevard

about colleague Peter R. de Vries was viewed by more than 1.3 million people on Wednesday evening.

The special broadcast of

Op1

, around the same time, was viewed by 800,000 people.

RTL Boulevard

broadcast on Wednesday evening without advertising breaks and broadcast fragments and conversations with Peter R. de Vries.

Especially for the broadcast, former colleague Albert Verlinde joined us and RTL program director Peter van der Vorst reappeared at the desk of the program.

Op1

would not actually be broadcast on Wednesday, but to respond to current events it was decided to make a broadcast.

The talk show is usually made in the late evening, but football was being played at the same time, so that the broadcast of

Op1

already started at 7 p.m. and thus overlapped with

Boulevard

(starts at 6:30 pm).

The best viewed of the evening is the semi-final of the European Football Championship where England and Denmark competed for a place in the final.

The match was made historic by the outcome: England reached the final for the first time since participating.
