Well, my native Slovenia wouldn't exist had it not preserved its language during centuries of foreign domination, so I'm certainly biased when it comes to language policy.


France 3 produces regional inserts in various minority languages, usually subtitled in French. Here's an Occitan-language example from 2013:

Interesting that the German language news programme in Italy still dubs contributors speaking Italian when you'd presume that most of the German speakers in South Tyrol would, as Italian citizens, have reasonable Italian.

I like that both the German and Ladin broadcasts use the mountain (someone will know the name) in the titles.

There is also a small German-speaking region in Eastern Belgium (now called "Ostbelgien") which has its own local news.
