The TV Documentary Experts Group consists of commissioning editors and other professionals from EBU Members working in the field.
The Group's work consists of 3 pillars: networking, inspiration and co-production. Group members are encouraged to strengthen their cooperation, share their experiences and develop new programmes.
A pitching session is organized during the two annual meetings to set up new co-production projects. Group members pitch ca. 15 selected co-production proposals to their colleagues. Most of these projects focus on to cultural issues, current affairs or subjects related to contemporary history.
Participating EBU Members elect group members for a 2-year mandate. They meet on average four times a year.
The Group's main tasks are:
Barbara Truyen, VPRO (The Netherlands)
Barbara Biemann, ARD/NDR (Germany)
Claudia Bucher, ARTE GEIE (Europe)
Lucie Kon, BBC (U.K.)
Marketa Stinglova, CTV (Czechia)
Axel Arnö, SVT (Sweden)
