Il-Fil tat-Tiġdid was a series of radio programmes produced and presented by Toni Sant on Radju Malta in 1990 and 1991.

The series aimed to rekindle memories of the long history of cable radio in Malta, which had ceased to operate in 1989. Each programme featured at least one guest, who was normally a long-standing or retired broadcaster, along with recordings from the radio stations tape collection.

The open song was a purposely re-recording of a jingle by Fr David Azzopardi, originally created as an advertisement for the newly re-branded cable radio service around 1977, operated by TeleMalta Corporation through Xandir Malta.
