SELECTION documents a KISZ (Hungarian Young Communist League) chapter at an oil refinery that is interested in hiring a musical act as entertainment for young workers. The documentary shows the group discussing their criteria for the band, as well as their interviews with the individual bands. It is quickly apparent that the group isn’t interested in any sort of musical talent or the potential audiences’ interest. Rather, they are focused on ideological or moral issues that may be perceived as negative, such as groupies or outfits that are seen as too trendy. They settle on the musical group that is potentially the easiest to control, the youngest band. SELECTION works as a larger metaphor for what censorship was like in Socialist Hungary and was banned from being publicly screened until 1982.

Originally, there were four versions of MTV Select including a German, Italian, UK, and pan-European versions that aired on local MTV channels: MTV Germany, MTV UK and Ireland, MTV Italy and the original European channel MTV Europe. Later versions included Polish, Romanian, and Spanish versions of the show; however, these were later canceled by MTV to make way for European versions of TRL. TRL UK and TRL Poland where later axed due to poor ratings as they never received the same success as MTV Select. MTV Select later appeared on MTV Japan in 2000 and was later replaced. The show is currently a big hit on MTV India, where the show format is to telecast live user requests, received through phone calls or e‑mails. With the launch of MTV Canada, a Canadian version of MTV Select aired on A‑Channel, MTV Canada, and Toronto One. Hosted by Amanda MacKay and Brian Adler and taped in Vancouver, British Columbia, the show featured interviews with bands and singers, video requests, and a countdown of the ten songs that received the most votes at the Select website, starting at Number 10 on Monday and ending at Number 1 on Friday. When MTV Canada was rebranded as Razer, the show was renamed 969.
Select Live and Select were music video request shows that screened every day on the C4 music channel. The shows operated for fifty weeks a year from 2003 to 2010, with videos added to the playlist each week. The original format show, Select, originally played every day from 4:00pm to 7:00pm but later only aired on weekend days during this timeslot. This show did not have a presenter; special "text codes" scrolled along the bottom of the screen and corresponded to a particular song. The Select Live format screened weekdays from 4:00pm to 6:00pm. Songs to be played were requested by sending an SMS message of a particular format to a designated number. The show was hosted by Joel Defries from 2005 until August 3 2007, then by Jermaine Leef until 2008, then by Drew Neemia until 2011. It was initially sponsored by Vodafone and broadcast as Vodafone Select Live. Regular segments featured on the live screenings of the show include Under Drew's Hat, which features celebrity gossip and news, Top 5, which screens on Fridays, featuring the songs most voted for on the show and the "Mattle" with Drew Neemia versus C4's Matt in a battle of music videos for viewers to vote for. The show was cancelled on 4 February 2010 when C4 was moved to Freeview to make way for FOUR; retro video shuffle C42 replaced it on the programming schedule. A similar format show was introduced on FOUR, initially called Drew and Shannon Live and later called Four Live.

Selecţia Naţională is a song contest which takes place every year in Bucharest, Romania. This contest decides who will represent Romania at the Eurovision Song Contest. The contest started in 1993, when Dida Drăgan took the title. The record for the most points ever given in the contest is held by the 1998 winner Mălina Olinescu, with 634 points. Since 2006, the jury points were replaced by a system combining the points attributed after the juries and tele-voting choices are made into points 1 to 8 and then 10 and 12. The winner can finish with a total of 24 points at most, as if it would get the 12 points from both the jury and the voting. Over the years, the contest was held in various venues, from TV studios to concert halls, circuses or even outdoor. The recurrent venue for the Selection is the Studio 3 of TVR. The most famous winners include Luminiţa Anghel, Mihai Trăistariu, Elena Gheorghe, Paula Seling or Mandinga.
