Does anyone watch the new series on Show Tv Bu kalp seni unutur mu? ?  Realizing Im spending way too much time watching too many soap series I decided to watch a more educational series.

 

It is a Turkish drama series, showing the coup of 1980 and its aftermatch up until 2003. It tells about the military, the people pursued for engaging in political activities, the Diyarbakır prison, the tortures etc. The series was warned by RTÜK (something like Board for Radio and TV) for the violent torture-scenes, which afterwards were cut out and decreased in following episodes. One of the advisors of the series is Murat Belge, a leftist liberal, intellectual and civil rights activist.

 

I am really impressed with the series, it is a welcome change after the production of so much sh*t like Aşk-ı Memnu and series alike. However, I wonder what your opinions are? In how far is it objective (and if it is so, it sheds a whole new light on Turkish historiography, at least tv-wise), or is it biased. How serious should we take scenes and events displayed in the history? Since I know someone who was heavily tortured during this period (and had the luck to escape to the Netherlands), I knew about the tortures, but this series sometimes has given me goosebumps. Id like the opinion of others if anyone is watching.

 

And if you´re not, you should It only started about a month ago.

Yeah, I´m also interested to know how objective such series would be. Considering that these are relatively new events (and Turkey hasn´t settled even some of the old ones yet). It seems to be a great sign though..

 Well, some of the prisoners in Diyarbakır are Kurdish, and in the series they speak Kurdish with each other, one of the main characters even sings a song in Kurdish. These may seem small, but I see it as a major improvement.

 

I know someone who was arrested and has spend some time in prison during this coup, and from him I know of the extensive torturing. We had talked about it lots (he was able to escape to the netherlands), but seeing it on tv made me feel a little weird.

 Well, I watch Turkish series from either http://diziport.com or www.diziizleyelim.com. Not youtube, but here you can also watch it ´bir parça halinde´ so you dont have to switch every 10 minutes.

Thanks

 

...both diziport.com and disiizleyelim brought up some "interesting" junk that covered most the screen making it impossible to view much.  I get Bariş Akarsu (RIP) songs on You Tube. So sad he passed away so young.

Deli_kizin, I normally don´t watch TV so much but you gave me the idea to see Bu Kalp Seni Unutur mu?. I couldn´t quite make it to the end but at least it made me remember my early teenager days.

 

I remember the day when the coup D´Etat happened. I was 13 years old then and had had my first date with a girl the night before. I was very happy and filled with hopel. Early next morning, my father woke me up saying the army had declared a coup D´Etat and that there would be a curfew that day. Well, the curfew was mostly for grown ups and we got out beginning from the first day. We saw all the tanks that had ruined the main roads, the soldiers in the streets and everything.

 

Turkish people supported the move, they crowded the places where Evren gave a speech and voted for the referandum that would change the constititution and confirm Kenan Evren as the legitimate president of the country with a record high voter participation and a record high support for the coup D´Etat. This was quite saddening for both the left and right militants. After having sacrificed everything for the sake of the country, they saw the crowds applaud their downfall, support the tortures they were subjected to and endorse the evaporation of their comrades.

 

In those days, everyone was supporting the new regime and no one was moving a finger to protest it. It is only now, after a few decades that we see TV shows bold enough to cover the topic.

 

Like said in Spartacus the movie, Rome is The mob so are Istanbul and entire Turkey...
