Abstract

According to Genette (1993:60), any factual or fiction narrative has neither the power nor the commitment to take on the same simultaneous narrative speed of its story. Therefore, the historical documentaries are not an exception. For this reason, they make use of several narrative and dramatic techniques in order to fit the length of their audiovisual narratives, and consequently, to adapt their contents to the movie length and both prevent the rhythm from becoming slow and the audience from being bored. Taking Genette’s category of narrative speed as the starting point, the aim of this article is to analyze the strategic use of some of these techniques in the television documentary series La Transición (1995).
