World Television

Ever wonder what programs other countries enjoy on television? What makes a nation’s shows unique or particular to England, France, Germany, Brazil?

INPUT-tv is in Washington, DC this week hosting evenings of teleivsion from countries around the world.  The Film series, Best of INPUT 2010 shows the winners from the conference the international public television group held last year.

These provacative programs started with a documentary done from the perspective of the rabbits living behind the Berlin Wall. This funny and insightful look, nominated for an Oscar, featured the rabbits who found a peaceful home in the so-called “death strip” along the wall surrounding West Berlin. Without any suspicion, they tell of a heavenly life in the midst of lush greenery and with virtually no enemies, well protected by an impenetrable wall.

Tuesday is a Swiss program called Taboo.

Wednesday at the American Film Institute are two looks at native peoples. One features Ecuador, the other Australia.

Thursday is at the Goethe-Institut Washington and features television from Brazil. A comedy, an adventure show and a game show.
