The daily report format RE: (Arte) tells the big stories of current Europe. The focus lies on a strong main character, whose life and action stands representative for a social movement. Be it a voluntary warrior in Poland, who prepares for a Russian invasion, or a british YouTube star, who becomes a living ad space, or co-parents from the Netherlands, who decided to father and raise a child as lesbian and man-to-man couples. The topics are as diverse as Europe itself. A daily sign against rising nationalism and fake news.
The pop culture news magazine “Tracks” (Arte/ZDF) is the only non-commercial news programme on German television for music, pop culture, and counterculture. From urban skiing in Norway to hip-hop in Cuba: “Tracks” stands for independent music journalism and presents creative trailblazers, influential artists, and innovative trends in youth culture from around the world.
“Metropolis” is THE culture magazine of Arte. Each week it uncovers the pertinent new works of Europe. Art and culture are not just shown, but discussed and challenged. Current controversies and cultural politics are presented alongside the most exciting trends and innovations of all genres. Also, every week a city is presented from the viewpoint of its most creative inhabitants.
A fast-paced journey through the world of the performing arts. “Culture Palace” doesn’t draw lines between high and low culture. Internet culture is just as important a stage as that of the Thalia Theater in Hamburg, and Lady Gaga has just as much to say here as the respected theatre director Dimiter Gotscheff. Nina Sonnenberg presents radically subjective reports on current events in art, theatre, film, the internet, and music.
in production from 2010 until 2016
“Yourope” (Arte/ZDF) is the first international news magazine for the globalised generation. Europe’s youth, internationally linked by mobile and digital technologies, look at their continent differently than their parents. “Yourope” casts light on the lifeworlds and challenges of this new generation. What do their work environments look like? What does “emancipation” mean to them? How are they dealing with Europe’s crisis? Each week, host Andreas Korn opens the current broadcast with a burning question – and “Yourope” searches for answers in four different countries.
in production from 2014 until 2016
