The extraordinary documentary „Planet Sparrow“ has been sparking excitement and convinced buyers from Italy (RAI Geo&Geo), Poland (TVP), Slovenia (RTV) and Slovakia (STV). „Owl’s Odyssey“, providing amazing background information of a barn-owl’s life, turns out to be a long-running sales highlight and was picked by Denmark (TV2) and Switzerland (RTS).
The Grand Teton Award-winning documentary „On a River in Ireland“ of Irish star producer Crossing the Line Films, persuaded TV-buyers from Czech Republic (CT), Denmark (DR) and Italy (RAI Geo & Geo). Huge packages of nature & wildlife documentaries went to Italy, Denmark, Poland, Slovenia, Hungary, France and Czech Republic. ORF fiction again could convince our CEE-neighbors: the new fast-paced „Tatort“ – episodes „Unforgotten“, „Code Name "Kidon"“, „Deep End“ and „Burnt Hopes“ will air soon in Slovenia (RTV).
