ARTE JUNIOR
GENERAL
ARTE values its young viewers, and reserves an hour and a half especially for them every
Sunday morning. ARTE Junior makes knowledge and discovery fun. These programmes are
designed for viewers aged ten and upwards, and they revolve around a range of themes.
Important events and new developments in many fields, including science, history and the
environment, are presented using a variety of formats, such as documentary series, cartoons,
magazine programmes and in exceptional cases fictional series. ARTE Journal Junior looks
back on Sunday at the week’s major news. This slot aims to impart knowledge playfully and to
give families plenty to talk about.
THE WEEKLY MAGAZINE
The aim of ARTE JOURNAL JUNIOR – the Magazine is to inform children and teenagers about
international issues and offer them some insights into the everyday lives of children in other
parts of the world. The form and language of classical news items (e.g. about the civil war in
Syria, climate change or compulsory basic income) are adapted to cater for the age group.
Children should have their say too. Every week, pupils in French or German schools have a
chance to ask their own questions. Journalists try to answer these often tricky requests. Topics
have included the Ebola virus, German unification and the European Parliament.
Besides, young viewers should learn more about their counterparts around the world. In three-
part portraits, children from other places introduce themselves and their family. They take the
audience into their school and talk about hobbies and dreams for the future. Examples include a
young surfer in San Diego and a Chinese boy who left his family for a ping-pong school in
Beijing.
Finally, just a word on the presenters: they are perfectly bilingual and guide their young viewers
through the programme in German and French.
