This article examines the career of the Spanish writer Lola Salvador, also known as ‘Salvador Maldonado’, popular for her work in films like El crimen de Cuenca/The Cuenca Crime (Miró, 1979) and Las bicicletas son para el verano/Bicycles Are for the Summer (Chávarri, 1984). The aim is to analyse her scripts for Televisión Española during the 1970s. The recovery of these works, which have been forgotten, allows us not only to analyse the beginnings of literary adaptations on television, but also to consider the history of television in Spain and its pedagogical role during the Transition. In this regard, it is relevant to reflect on the incorporation of women as creators, who rose to prominence in Spanish television at this time. By focusing on the analysis of the dramas, this article argues that Lola Salvador is a television auteur whose plots and representations of gender reflect the political and social transformations that took place during the Spanish Transition.
