Clío tv is a production house dedicated to historical documentaries, with the objective of making major events experienced by Mexico throughout its history available to the general public.
For over twelve years under the constant guidance of Enrique Krauze, Clío has brought over 300 programs about national history into Mexican homes, broadcast by Televisa. Our series México Siglo XX , México Nuevo Siglo, Héroes de Carne y Hueso, Clío en el Bicentenario, and Hazaña el deporte vive, have received various national awards, and our documentaries have become obligatory references.
Historical and political figures; private enterprise; athletes, social, economic and cultural issues; the arts; the media; movie directors; and performers from the world of show business are just some of the topics that Clío tv has approached and that comprise a vast archive of salvaged memories, as well as the history of our present: a true Video Library of Mexico to be inherited by present and future generations.
With three weekly broadcasting schedules provided by Televisa, Clío tv documentaries have reached a variety of audiences in Mexico over the past 12 years on open television channels 2, 4, and 5.
