One Man Show
One of the longest broadcasted programmes in the history of Stream, an Internet TV, is based on creative disruptions of the standards of commercial TV stations. The episode that undermined the shooting of a reality cooking show, Prostřeno (Come Dine With Me), and touched on the problems of people who suffer from Tourette syndrome was one of those whose broadcast caused a media scandal.

Doctors: The Czechs are Inventive
This narrative, multi-faceted exploration behind the scenes of medicine literally takes a look at what’s on the other side of the screen. At points with curiosity, at others with a personal, technical, or suspenseful tone, it uses examples of leading Czech doctors (a plastic surgeon, a neurosurgeon, and a cardiologist) to present the social connotations of a service that is acknowledged yet also undervalued.

Heinz-Christian Strache – Ibiza video
Before the Austrian parliamentary elections in 2017, Heinz-Christian Strache, Head of the Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ), agreed to support the alleged family of a Russian oligarch in exchange for counter-services. This agreement was revealed thanks to a video filmed in secret. A fundamental issue in ethical journalism is whether it is, at all, permissible within the public interest to provoke a situation and capture it all on a hidden camera.

Bomb Patrol Afghanistan
This three-part Discovery Channel miniseries looks at American units in Afghanistan who specialize in removing improvised explosive devices (IEDs). The cameras used to film the show are part of the war technology that is the series’ main focus. From the animations that give viewers a vivid look at how IEDs work, and from the commentary comparing the military automobiles to those from the Mad Max movies, we see that the real heroes of this series are the war machines.
