"A matter of opinion"
in Spite of the mean SVT that no breach has been committed.
– When we decided to make a third season of "Historieätarna" so was julshowen already planned. Stuff like this is really a matter of opinion and it is just as you say, that the SVT has pretty strict rules. But because the show does not have any link to SVT:s "Historieätarna" so, we approved it here. So no shadow over Erik and Lotta, ” says Eva Beckman, programbeställare for culture, facts, events, religion and beliefs on the SVT.
According to Beckman tried to SVT to put the sending of the "Historieätarna" during another period, but it was not possible.

– It was important for us when the clash became a fact of life is that there is no connection whatsoever to SVT:s "Historieätarna" in the marketing of julshowen. So far I have been able to assess it, it has not been done.
Food and cuisine
Last year there was a similar crash when Haag and Lundgren was present in this year’s advent calendar is "a Thousand years to christmas," and at the same time did a christmas show. SVT said then it was okay because the christmas calendar is not revolved around food, but about being a child.
But now it’s all about food and food?
– I don’t know how it was a year ago. But what we can say is that it would be impossible is to make "Historieätarna" in tv and "Historieätarna"-the show, at the same time. We would not be able to allow.
