TV sitcoms compete for Golden Rose

Television comedy programmes from around the world are competing to draw the loudest laughs at the Golden Rose of Montreux festival on Lake Geneva.

The 40th edition of the festival opens on Thursday with a screening of the Swiss-French sitcom, Les Piques-Meuron. The production is Switzerland's sole entry in the competition.

The director-general of the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation (SBC), Amin Walpen, will also address the participants on the first night.

The Golden Rose is the only international comedy festival devoted exclusively to light entertainment programmes for television. More than a thousand producers, broadcasters and journalists are expected to attend.

The festival is a joint venture between the SBC and the town of Montreux, under the patronage of the European Broadcasting Union.
