Melodifestivalen

Postby denbi90 » Thu Mar 28, 2019 2:03 pm

Kindly note the mistakes concerning the TV show Melodifestivalen:

- On tvdb.com, the shows are listed as "Season 1959", "Season 1960", etc. The numbers are not season numbers but the year when the shows were held. From 1959 till 2001 there
- Broadcasting date for Melodifestivalen 1960 was 2nd February and not 6th February.
- Most specials are not listed on https://www.tvdb.com. The "Specials" list seems a little pointless as in reality they are mini documentaries and SVT, the Swedish national broadcaster, produced many of these documentaries which are difficult to list on https://www.tvdb.com as nowadays there are even made-for-website, on demand, and eventually deleted. Hence, I would delete the "Specials" list.
- The following Melodifestivalen shows are missing:
Melodifestivalen 1971 (one episode, broadcast date: 27th February)
Melodifestivalen 1990 (one episode, broadcast date: 9th March)
Melodifestivalen 1992 (one episode, broadcast date: 14th March)
Melodifestivalen 1993 (one episode, broadcast date: 5th March)
Melodifestivalen 1994 (one episode, broadcast date: 12th March)
Melodifestivalen 1995 (one episode, broadcast date: 24th February)
Melodifestivalen 1996 (one episode, broadcast date: 24th February)
Melodifestivalen 1997 (one episode, broadcast date: 8th March)
Melodifestivalen 1998 (one episode, broadcast date: 14th March)
Melodifestivalen 2001 (one episode, broadcast date: 23rd February)
- "Season 8" and "Season 9" should be removed.

Please note that I posted Wikipedia as a resource as not all Melodifestivalen editions are published on demand on SVT's website and so it may appear that some editions on Wiki are extra but they are not. They really happened.

1958-2001 - one show
2002-present - six shows with semi-finals, second chance and final

We will not remove the specials, as for the unavailable, if you present fonts, I will be happy to add. In fact, I would like you to bring sources of those episodes and the date to be corrected. Remembering Wikipedia is not considered a source. ;)

Hello Daniel,

Thanks for taking the time to post about this!
I've deleted Season 8 and Season 9.
As for the missing seasons/episodes, the series isn't locked so you're free to add them yourself. This sub-forum is meant for requests concerning locked series.

Good luck 8-)

Episodes 7, 8, 9 of Seasons 2010, 2011, 2012 need to be deleted as they are not part of the programme Melodifestivalen. They are part of a different programme: Eurovision Song Contest. Here are the links for each season:

A little observation: When it comes to adding images to episodes with no image, I see the usual box "Add/Replace Image". However, when there already is an image, the box "Add/Replace Image" does not appear and, hence, I cannot replace an image.

Can you kindly remove the episodes' images for 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017? I have better ones. Also, the one of 1959 is not correct. That singer did not perform during the televised show of that year. I have the correct photo.

I will shortly be adding a photo for each episode for the rest of the TV programme.
