CONTENT
- In fitting with its slot description,
ARTE Reportage
will continue to be positioned as a news
magazine in terms of culture and style. ARTE Reportage
is neither a pure news
programme, nor is it special themed evening. Instead, it reflects global developments,
allowing some temporal distance from the events. On the one hand, this provides time for a
response to be developed and on the other, the necessary distance and journalistic
perspective for the first background analyses to be made.
-
ARTE Reportage
will continue to feature a
decidedly German/French perspective
. The
team consists of German and French journalists. In addition, freelance journalists from both
countries are involved.
This double perspective, aside from symbolising ARTE, has the advantage of avoiding the
topic being covered from a purely national perspective, a common occurrence on other
French and German networks.
- How the reports are created will depend on the genre:
choice of a journalistic perspective
(no features which require a comprehensive overview),
communicating the issue through
people
(the most proven way of communicating ideas and facts since the beginning of
journalism).
- The news magazine positions itself between forecasting events and reacting to current
affairs. It also presents the opportunity to choose topics from a purely editorial point of view.
This has always been a distinguishing feature of ARTE. It is neither about being the first nor
being where everyone else currently is.
- Europe takes on an important role in this programme. However, the manner in which it
handles European issues depends on topicality and the editors’ selection.
