• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Rede Record de Televisão (Portuguese pronunciation: [ˈʁedʒi ʁeˈkɔʁ]) also known simply as Record, is a Brazilian television network, founded in 1953 by Paulo Machado de Carvalho, also founder of Rádio Record. Currently it is owned by Brazilian businessman Edir Macedo, who is also founder and bishop of the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God.

A network with programs and broadcasts in the 1950s and the early and mid-1960s, it ended up struggling in an uphill battle in the late 1960s (caused mainly by the rise of its biggest rival, Rede Globo), and then suffered a Dork Age which stretched from The Seventies up to the end of The Eighties (making it one of the worst declines suffered by a TV network). After being acquired by businessman Edir Macedo in 1990, it enjoyed an unprecedented amount of resurgence in the 1990s and in the Turn of the Millennium, and by 2007, it clinched second place in São Paulo's TV ratings (overtaking its second biggest rival, SBT). It is known as the oldest TV network in Brazil, with over 61 years of continuous operations.
