Session No. 1, 12.00 – 1.00 pm

TELE.VISION focuses on future formats and visions for TV. Together with Christian von Brockhausen (NDR, DIE BOX) and Nicole Baum (3sat) we explore both, innovative and conventional formats on public TV, their target audiences and the way they work - or don’t. Together, we can discuss visionary formats with the experts and maybe we can give an impulse to create a brand new documentary TV format!
