DOKU-SERIE
Doku-Serie / Docu-Series targets a broad family audience, tempting viewers to embark on a
journey and deepen their knowledge.
Viewers set off on an entertaining voyage of discovery anywhere in the world to explore places,
spectacular and culturally significant sites and landscapes, along with their traditions, distinctive
hallmarks and history. The focus is on conveying knowledge in a lively manner: viewers are
encouraged to observe with curiosity.
The thematic spectrum is broad: travel, nature, medicine, geography, astronomy, archaeology,
customs, culture, even the animal world and history. Any aspect of knowledge will be
considered, as long as the chosen theme results in lively, visual encounters and can be
processed into 26-minute episodes in an appropriate afternoon format. Political and social
issues do not meet this expectation.
IMPLEMENTATION AND APPROACH
The docu-series is usually presented by a host. S/he is the viewer’s companion, a mediator
between the viewer and the theme or place. S/he is interested, well-informed and engaged in a
constant exchange with the new environment. The host’s curiosity and questions enable the
viewer to acquire valuable information about the country, people, practices and customs. S/he is
also a narrator, providing commentary that is comprehensible and accessible. Knowledge is
communicated in a pleasant, easy and – if possible – humorous way.
Series without a presenter are acceptable as long as they approach the communication of
knowledge with compelling care and narrative quality.
