THEMA DU MARDI
THEMA AM DIENSTAG
GOAL AND PURPOSE OF THE SLOT
Thema du mardi | Thema am Dienstag
is the network’s weekly cover story. It poses a clear
and simple question and features an investigative take on the topic. The programme examines
current affairs from a European and global perspective, provides information and allows viewers
to form opinions.
THEMATIC SCOPE
Thema du mardi | Thema am Dienstag
covers anticipated yet underreported social, political,
economic and environmental topics which affect the world today. Sometimes it is also a
response, when the network decides to intervene by making its own original contribution to the
current debate. The focus is on topics that concern and affect viewers in both countries (e.g. the
environment and health issues).
IMPLEMENTATION AND APPROACH
The time slot places a special focus on investigative documentaries and documentations which
pursue a precise journalistic question. Special themed evenings consisting of several
programmes offer the opportunity to analyse a question from different perspectives. The
documentaries and news reports may be supplemented by studio discussions and debates. A
special point of view with more in-depth background reporting is desirable for current event
programming.
