Many broadcasters around Europe have started showing the preview videos for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest on TV on special shows.

You can now watch the first episode of the four-part series by Finnish national broadcaster YLE called De Eurovisa – Euroviisaat.

These programmes are produced by Swedish YLE and are in Swedish with Finnish subtitles. YLE will show all of the videos again in one go just before the actual contest in May.

The host broadcaster SVT (Swedish Television) has revamped their preview programmes for this year.

Gone is the familiar panel we have seen for many years now. The shows are hosted by Niklas Strömstedt and Malin Roos and each episode will have one artist guest to talk about the entries.

The first weekly episode of four in Inför Eurovision Song Contest 2013 will be on SVT1 and SVT Play on Sunday 21 April, with Rickard Engfors as the first guest.
