Watch Eurovision 1991 online
#EurovisionAgain 1991 may be over but the Eurovision 1991 grand final remains online… for now. You can watch the full show on the official Eurovision YouTube channel.
However, it is only available for an unspecified “limited time”. Based on past #EurovisionAgain uploads, this will probably remain online for a week.
But why? Before 2004, the copyright for each show belonged to the respective broadcasters. In the case of 1991, that’s Italy’s RAI. For now, the Italian network has opted to make the show available only temporarily.
From 2004, the rules changed with the EBU taking over ownership of the rights. Hence, the uploads of contests from 2004 onwards have remained online.
#EurovisionAgain is scheduled to return on Saturday 6 June at 21:00 CEST.
What is #EurovisionAgain
For the past several weeks, since the COVID-19 pandemic first took hold, the Eurovision Again team has been organising mass rewatchings of classic contests on Saturday evenings. The EBU soon came on board and began publishing previously unavailable entire show uploads on its YouTube channel.
As well as organising rewatches, the Eurovision Again team has also added a fundraising element for various LGBT+ charities. Details can be found here.
What do you think? Did Carola deserve to win the rewatch? Has “Fångad av en stormvind” stood the test of time? Let us know in the comments.
