A Bee’s Diary

We think the life of an insect is short and insignificant. How much can you possibly experience during a life span of 6-weeks? And aren’t beehives the epitome of the ‘collective’ – thousands of dumb worker bees in the service of a queen bee? The latest science, however, paints a completely different picture: bee colonies…

Crime Scene Antiquity (WT)

This five-part series evolves around crimes and criminal cases of antiquity ranging from common murder, to raids, arson, cannibalism, assassinations, high treason, and terrorism. We investigate the cases using modern forensics, elaborate CGI and experimental archeology. Each episode presents both known and unknown crimes. Even if crimes from Greco-Roman antiquity dominate, we deliberately do not…

Secret History of the Euro

Love it or hate it, the European single currency is now used by 340 million people and has revolutionized our economy, profoundly transformed our society, shaken up countries, weakened governments, strengthened others and sparked raging debates that are unlikely to end anytime soon. January 1, 2019 will mark the 20th anniversary of the adoption of…

Macro Worlds

The world of insects is a fascinating parallel world. On the one hand, it is quite similar to ours – from predators to mating rituals – on the other hand it is fundamentally different: insects form states and cannot live at minus degrees due to their physiology (with a few exceptions). The series “Macro Worlds”…

Rewilding

Europe’s nature is subject to dramatic change. On the one hand, biodiversity is sinking, on the other hand there is an impressive comeback in the animal world. The reasons for this are manifold: the EU’s nature conservation policy or the increasing urbanization that creates more space for wild animals in the countryside. But the main…

Wild Castles

Europe’s castles are world-famous – Neuschwanstein, Carcassonne, or the Alhambra. Less known is the animal world around them – and within their walls. Wild Castles takes the viewer on a discovery trip to Europe’s most famous castles and palaces, but discovers more than just the history of the rulers and wars. The series explores the…

The Borderless Sky

The magic of a sparkling night sky is undisputed, but fewer and fewer people can still experience this breathtaking view – the brightly lit cities and the never-ending activity of the Western world make it impossible. This is the initial situation in which the photographers started their crusade. Your mission: to bring the beauty of…

Sundown for Autos

The business model of the auto industry, as we know it since Ford’s model T, is coming to an end. Diesel congestion, traffic, environmental standards – and on the horizon, the electric future of the car begins. Traditional cars fight for survival. The film shows the struggle of engineers, managers, lobbyists and politicians from Germany,…

Propaganda. The Art of Selling Lies

In a world where access to media is unprecedented, the global conversation around the propagation of information, “alternative facts” and “fake news” has never been more heated. As media outlets become increasingly polarized, and as social media rules information feeds, where does propaganda come into play? How is it influencing changes in the world order?…
