Arts.21 retires, Euromaxx debuts

Since August 2009 we’ve carried Deutsche Welle’s Arts.21 program. New episodes debut on Wednesdays at 3:30, and then replay on Thursday and Saturday. This Next week (6/257/2) is the last episode of Arts.21… DW has cancelled the show, and replaced it with Euromaxx. Euromaxx is a 30-minute European lifestyle magazine, as multi-facetted as Europe itself: an entertaining kaleidoscope of people and places, arts and culture, concerts, music, style, fashion and much more.

Euromaxx will appear in the schedule at the same time Arts.21 did, Wednesday at 3:30, Thursday at 4:30, and Saturday at 11:30.

Our other Deutsche Welle programs continue unchanged:
European Journal: A fascinating mix of stories exploring the important political, economic and cultural developments in Europe;

Global 3000: A video-rich weekly magazine provides in depth analysis, investigative reporting, and portraits of people who are making a difference on the planet;

Tomorrow Today: A weekly science program with compelling features and reports about science and technology, medicine and the environment, giving a glimpse of the world of tomorrow.

Deutsche Welle is taking the summer off

Starting Wednesday, 6/20, our three Deutsche Welle shows (European Journal, Arts.21, and Global 3000) are taking the summer off.  Rather than run re-runs, we’ll just leave the timeslots blank, and pick them up again when new shows are available in the fall.  New episodes are expected to be available on Thursday 9/6 for European Journal, and Wednesday 9/12 for Arts.21 and Global 3000.

Deutsche Welle European Journal

Starting next week, we will add Deutsche Welle’s European Journal to our lineup.  Initially, it will run immediately after our University Channel programs; when the University Channel series runs out in late July 2011, European Journal will take over the timeslots.

While University Channel starts its weekly cycle on Saturday (repeating a few times during the week until the next Friday), EJ will start its cycles on Thursdays, and repeat until Monday.

Here’s the official Deutsche Welle description:

For nearly 30 years, EUROPEAN JOURNAL has been public television’s main source of in-depth coverage of one of the world’s most dynamic regions. Fifty-two times a year, DW-TV provides viewers worldwide with a fascinating mix of stories exploring the important political, economic and cultural developments in Europe. Each week presenters Cathy Smith and Jim Gibbons provide their unique take on stories unfolding across the Atlantic, telling the story with compelling video, strong reporting, and a good sense of humor. Europe is a diverse part of the globe with many languages and cultures. With Deutsche Welle’s 50-plus years of covering Europe for the world, our producers and journalists know the Continent just a bit better, and European Journal is our showcase of what we do with that knowledge and understanding. The stories in Europe are important ones and deserve more than the occasional 30 seconds on the nightly news. Only one program provides Americans with consistent depth and insight on developments taking place inside Europe on a weekly basis.

We are grateful to Deutsche Welle and its sponsors for making this available to us at no charge (along with our existing DW programs, Arts.21 and Global 3000).

Deutsche Welle Global 3000 and Arts.21 Start Wednesday, 8/12

The Deutsche Welle  series Global 3000 and Arts.21, 2 half-hour shows with new episodes every week, will begin showing on Wednesday 8/12/09.  They premiere at 3PM (Global 3000) and 3:30PM (Arts.21).  Each show will repeat twice: Global 3000 on Thursday at 4:00 and Saturday at 12 Noon; Arts.21 Thursday at 4:30 and Saturday at 11:30AM.

See DW’s Arts.21 Website for more information. We run episodes 9 days after they premiere  in Germany (so our 8/12 episode is the one DW released on 8/3).  You can view prior episodes on the DW website, as well as see what our next episode is going to be about.

New Programming coming from Deutsche Welle

As soon as the paperwork is done, we’ll add these to the schedule… new episodes on Wednesday, repeated once each on Thursday and Saturday.

ARTS.21

ARTS.21 is a half hour cultural magazine from a country that has much more to offer than Beethoven and Bayreuth.

We look at the entire cultural picture of Germany in the 21st century: Young photographers capturing a new century; a thriving, cosmopolitan cultural scene in the capital, Berlin; major music and film festivals. ARTS.21 also covers major events (Berlinale Film Festival, Biennale di Venezia, German Book Prize). All this plus dance, theatre, literature, and design in a video-rich magazine your viewers will want to come back for each week.

With its location at the heart of Europe, Deutsche Welle is in the unique position of being at the center of cultural life in Europe. Make sure your viewers get to experience this rich and meaningful program each week. The program’s web page: http://www.dw-world.de/dw/0,,7885,00.html?id=7885

Global 3000

GLOBAL 3000  will widen your horizons by examining the global consequences of local actions – and how their actions impact the globe. American toddlers learn Chinese. Afghans study the Thai ways of doing things. Mapuche Indians from Patagonia want to take Benetton to court. And what do sheep in New Zealand have to do with climate change?

We live in a world where the actions by a population 10,000 miles away will very likely shape our own lives.  Events in Asia have repercussions in Europe. European reactions have knock-on effects in South America. The situation in the Amazon Rainforest concerns us all.

In a video-rich weekly magazine, hosted by Journalist Michaela Küfner, Global 3000 provides in depth analysis, investigative reporting, and portraits of people who are making a difference on the planet. Plus we ask your viewers to contribute to the program by sending in their personal stories and experiences, helping shape a weekly broadcast that gives new insights into the world-wide community to which we all belong.  Globalisation is all around us – and every week we give it a face with GLOBAL 3000.
