*FIRST IN SAT-BONN*
MORE INFORMATION VIA DEUTSCHE WELLE-TV
- New Program-design starts 1st January 1999
mcr Bonn/Cologne. News every 30 minutes, more information less entertainment,
this is the future of Deutsche Welle-TV, as DW-director Dieter Weirich told it
journalists in Bonn today (23-06-98). The new channel-identity will be
information in the three languages used today (German, English and Spanish).
DW-tv wants to show more magazines produced by german stations WDR and ZDF,
there are talks about that right now. The station will not be privatized, even
if Mr. Weirich wants to implement some private structures in Deutsche Welle.
The technical reach of Deutsche Welle-tv is about 35 Million viewers 24 hrs. a
day and 85 Million viewers, with rebroadcasting of at least parts of the
channel. Director Weirich explained to TELE-satellite, that Deutsche Welle-TV
will be available both free to air and as part of local Pay-TV bouquets in the
future. "There will be a problem, when the Pay-TV-operator insists on
exclusive carriage of our channel," said Weirich. But until now, that never
happened. "The future will be both ways."
IRAN PROBLEM FOR GERMAN STATION VOX
- Canceling of Mahmoody-Film
mcr Cologne. To avoid conflict with Iranian religious leaders, German Station
VOX has cancelled the airing of the Betty Mahmoody-Film "Not without my
daughter". A Vox-Spokeswoman told a Cologne-Newspaper, that a lot of employees
had been massively threatened by anonymous callers. "These people do not tell
their names", said Gabriele Leibl. The same dispute erupted in France last
week, but there the film was aired.
- Hill Street Blues is back
This was the first of the semi-authentic series on television. Hill Street
Blues, about a police-precinct in Chicago. Producer Steven Bocho broke new
ground for television entertainment. Now TVDanmark shows you this classic each
weeknight at about 0:30CET, right after "Allo, Allo". TVDanmark broadcasts in
clear D2-MAC from 1 deg. West.
