DISCOP Istanbul 2014: ORF UNIVERSUM - Flying High with Sparrows, Owls and Bumblebees
Vienna, March 6th 2014
The current line-up including "Planet Sparrow", "Secrets of Bumblebees" and "Owl's Odyssey" of the successful ORF Universum strand excites the public broadcaster TRT and further top TV-channels in Turkey as well as Middle Eastern buyers at this year’s DISCOP Istanbul.
With outstanding technical innovation and exceptional storytelling of the documentaries, ORF-Enterprise accomplishes the high interest in nature and wildlife programmes on this mainly fictional-oriented market. The TV-buyers also show steady interest in ORF Universum's classic science documentaries such as the Emmy-Award winning three-parter "Nature Tech" and "Lightning reloaded".
Marion Camus-Oberdorfer, Head of Content Sales International: "It’s great to see that our continued attendance at the market finally pays well. The increasing acceptance of ORF-Enterprise in this competitive market is clearly recognizable: we are able to meet the special needs and high demands of our Turkish and Middle Eastern clients in terms of nature and wildlife programmes like very few others can."
