To Catch a Smuggler: Search and Seize
This National Geographic television series shows New York’s John F. Kennedy airport from the guarded viewpoints of police officers looking for smugglers. As we follow their everyday routing, we see their techniques for uncovering contraband and for interrogating suspects. Each episode begins with the statement that all the suspects in the series are presumed innocent. The faces of the people being interrogated are often blurred on purpose. Unlike in crime movies, the people who are apprehended are not automatically perpetrators and do not have faces.

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.

The Analogs
A docureality film about nine television matadors who come together determined to, one last time, broadcast a television show in the way it used to be done during their era – the early days of television. Their story is told in a "making-of" format, a film about a film that captures the older generation's relationship to the television medium. The film shows the way television is made by presenting real people who have dedicated a large portion of their lives to television. We thus get the chance to meet these legends of the TV screen through their personalities, philosophy, and their complicated relationships.

Nestlings 2
A unique longitudinal documentary series about children living on the margins of society. The "little birds" of the title are a class of largely Roma children which was formed at a Brno primary school in response to a petition by parents who didn't want their children to have Roma children as classmates. This situation formed the foundation for the first long-term docusoap in the Czech Republic. The film was co-created by the children themselves, who have spent five years using small cameras to record the world as they see it.

No Place Like Home
The fictional television quiz show “Weg van Nederland” presents five immigrants who, after having spent many years in Holland, must leave their friends, partners, studies, and employment because their asylum application has been denied. As children, they had fled from countries ruled by a lack of freedom; now they are going back and can win 4,000 euros or material prizes. The contest criticizes the prejudices and bureaucratic red tape that the Dutch system throws in the immigrants’ way.

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.
