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.

The Magnificent Five (working title)
After living in an institution for twenty-eight years, Petr relocates to a training apartment, where he is preparing for a possible move into the “real world”. This untraditional look at a socially sensitive issue from the inside out, without the standard preconceived views of sympathy or irony, shows that the basic principles underlying interpersonal relationships are always the same – touching, humorous, and fragile.

Back in Time for the Weekend, The 70s
This reality show makes it possible for a British four-member family to travel in time and experience a different decade each week through “the life of one household” (starting with the 1950s and ending with a fictional future). This entertaining socio-cultural experiment moves smoothly between topics like fashion, technology, and politics, and even covers “what vacuum cleaners meant for women, and mortgages for the middle-class”.
