METROPOLIS
OBJECTIVE AND THEMATIC RANGE
Metropolis
is an ARTE cultural magazine which is not presented. Each week, it reports on the
world of ideas and the arts in Europe.
Metropolis
covers the visual arts, music, theatre, dance, literature, the movement of ideas,
architecture and town planning, cultural practices and their economic and social aspects.
This magazine fits in with the rest of ARTE’s overall cultural offering, complementing and not
competing.
Metropolis
is expected to examine in depth and in an original fashion the cultural scene of the
day, the underlying cultural scene.
Metropolis
does not play the role of a cultural news bulletin, focused on the latest "hot" news
item; that role is reserved for the news bulletin.
Metropolis
is not in competition, either, with the channel’s new discussion magazine.
Metropolis
is a magazine that favours the Reportage approach as a way of tackling cultural
topics in an original and pertinent manner. A reportage makes it possible to get to know those
active in the world of culture in their own context, and to portray the issues and problems. It also
makes culture accessible to the widest possible audience.
Metropolis
is proud to take a subjective approach: the magazine will also take a stand on
matters under public debate, a stand that may be polemical if the issues justify it.
THE STRUCTURE OF THE PROGRAMME
The structure of the magazine aims to be appropriate for the time of the broadcast in order to
secure a loyal audience. With the occasional exception,
Metropolis
will cover several topics,
but maintains a recognizable rhythm from week to week in order to provide points of reference
for viewers.
Each week, the cultural life of a major city serves as a "red thread" for the programme. Three
reportages in this city, shown at three stages in the programme, explore well- and less well-
known facets of its cultural life and give
Metropolis
its rhythm.…
Regular items (current events, trends, cinema, art…) also provide the viewer with points of
reference, as well as opportunities for touching upon different aspects of culture today.
