One of the organisers of the televised event that drew some twelve hundred visitors to the packed sports arena was the Odžak chapter of the Napredak Croatian Culture Society
National TV broadcaster HRT’s Across Our Beautiful Homeland music and stage spectacle was recorded in Odžak on the 4th of April. HRT’s Across Our Beautiful Homeland show has been featured on the national broadcaster for over twenty years now and has been successfully led by TV editor and host Branko Uvodić for its entire run. One of the secrets to the success and staying power of this show is that it often focuses on small towns that rarely get media attention.
One of the organisers of the televised event that packed the local sports arena was the Odžak chapter of the Napredak Croatian Culture Society. Estimates put the audience size at about twelve hundred people. Some of the gathered were leading society figures, including cardinal Vinko Puljić, the archbishop of Vrhbosna, Napredak Croatian Culture Society president Dr Franjo Topić, renowned genetics researcher and former minister Dr Dragan Primorac, CHF director Mijo Marić and many other figures from the cultural and political scene in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Croatia.
The show featured performances by the Napredak Croatian Culture & Arts Society of Odžak and a bevy of popular performing artists, including Miroslav Škoro, Neda Ukraden, Hanka Paldum, Nedžad Salković, Ilija and Marko Begići, Željko Jurić, Boban Rajović and Marija Pavković.
The Across Our Beautiful Homeland music and stage spectacle recorded in Odžak will be broadcast on HRT on the 14th and 21st of April (Saturday) at 5:40pm.
