CARACAS, VENEZUELA (AP) - The studios of the Venezuelan television channel RCTV used to be filled with thousands of actors, production assistants and other employees.
Today, nearly five years after the channel was forced off the air by the Venezuelan government, only several hundred employees remain, mainly producing programs for other channels.
