DIMANCHE DOCU CULTUREL
SONNTAG KULTURDOKU
PURPOSE AND GOAL OF THE SLOT
These documentations allow viewers, even without previous knowledge, to discover for
themselves great works of music or key cultural events and important figures from other cultural
sectors.
THEMATIC SCOPE
The time slot addresses contemporary and classical cultural achievement, as well as art and
culture in Europe and around the world. It covers cultural facts, movements and trends from the
areas of painting, music, performing arts, literature, cinema, photography, architecture and
design, and deals with current issues of cultural heritage.
Dimanche docu culturel | Sonntag
Kulturdoku
has an introductory and accessible tone, suitable for all interested viewers. It
should arouse the viewers’ curiosity.
IMPLEMENTATION & APPROACH
New formats and narrative styles are desirable, in view of the broad audience. The inclusion of
monographs in the slot will only be justified if the person is an important cultural figure and the
film is easily accessible without previous knowledge.
Dimanche docu culturel | Sonntag
Kulturdoku
explores the artistic appeal and the cultural influence of the artist, and is not just a
purely biographical portrayal of their life. With documentaries on musical topics, the music itself
will be the cultural documentary’s starting point (with at least 50% of the content being about
music). Topic-based series are possible.
CONNECTING/DISTINGUISHING FACTORS TO OTHER SLOTS
Dimanche docu culturel | Sonntag Kulturdoku
should promote culture amongst interested
viewers, whereas the cultural documentary on Wednesday evenings offers culture for
“advanced” viewers, who want to expand the knowledge they already have.
