In 2012, the Flemish public broadcaster VRT launched a website and a TV programme, both in English, for persons of foreign origin living in Belgium: "Fans of Flanders".

The programme aims to help expats to discover and enjoy the best things their new environment has to offer. In addition, the programme is an attempt to bridge any possible gap between "locals" and people with different international backgrounds.

It's a light-hearted approach that attempts to explain the local quirks, tradition and habits, how you can spend your leisure time, how to socialize with your Flemish neighbours, ...

The website is highly interactive. Readers can comment and have their say, share and respond to opinion polls.  ‘Fans of Flanders’ is broadcasted every Sunday evening at 9 PM (on Canvas), every Monday evening at 6.30 PM (also Canvas) and every Saturday morning at 11.45 AM (on één) .
