Programme One

Programme One was a USSR. It had a mixed schedule of news and entertainment, with the emphasis on events in the USSR, and also included regional programming.


Programme One was established in 22 March 1951 when, as part of a reorganization of the television system, the Moscow Television Station changed its name to reflect its planned expansion. It was known officially as the First Programme of the CT USSR (Russian: Первая программа ЦТ СССР).

The channel, which was transmitted on the SECAM D/K standard, carried advertising for the first time in the 1980s. The channel was broadcast until 1991. In December of that year, it was renamed as First Channel of the Ostankino Television.

Following the Soviet republics, while in the Russian republic the main Ostankino Television channel took over its signal.


The periodic Little Blue Light became a staple of Soviet Union celebrations during New Year's Eve, International Women's Day, and International Workers' Day. The programme continues to run today on Russia 1.

The news department did not employ news journalists until 1989, when they began to front the shorter bulletins (the main 18:30 and 21:00 news programmes was fronted only by senior journasts until after the failed coup d'etat).
