MIPTV Spotlight: PBS International


Woodstock and Chasing the Moon, two of PBS International’s offerings, commemorate the 50th anniversaries of seminal events.

Woodstock documents the gathering that turned into “a once-in-a-century cultural phenomenon that served as a coda to the ’60s and a harbinger of the decades to come,” says the company’s VP, Tom Koch. In the same vein, Chasing the Moon, a Robert Stone film, pays homage to the historic moon landing and upends much of the conventional mythology surrounding the event.

Lastly, natural-history program When Whales Walked: A Deep Time Journey is a film that explores the origins of many of the planet’s most breathtaking creatures. It “takes us millions of years into the past to unravel the extraordinary lineage of awe-inspiring animals, from ferocious crocodiles to magnificent elephants,” says Koch.

He adds, “For over 20 years, the company has extended the reach of programming beyond broadcast while generating revenue for the public television system, stations and producers.”
