Dokumentärer i SVT

The following text is in Danish as it includes information on the excellent documentary service that is provided by SVT, Swedish public television, that is available for viewers in the Nordic countries. There are not many broadcasters – if any – that has such a range of time slots, often at prime time, for the screening of documentary films and programmes:

Jeg abonnerer (det er gratis) på et nyhedsbrev fra SVT. Det bringer mig til en velredigeret og indbydende website, der oplyser om kommende dokumentar-visninger på et af de følgende mange strands: ”Dokumentärfilm”, ”Dokument Inifrån”, ”Dokument Utifrån”, ”K Special” og ”Dox”. Hvor ”K Special” (fredag aften kl. 20, se nedenfor om Boris Mitics film) altid har været garant for høj kvalitet og visning af ikke-engelsk sprogede dokumentarer, er ”Dox” nyt. Her er hvad Ingemar Persson, programchef for dokumentar, siger herom:

På tisdagskvällarna sänder vi de hetaste nyproducerade dokumentärfilmerna och de odödliga klassikerna. Under rubriken Dox visar vi världens bästa filmer om verkligheten. Vi vill ge publiken tv-kvällar de inte glömmer. Dox-filmerna visas varje tisdag kl 22.00 i SVT1 och det utlovas dokumentärer från både Sverige och världen som fängslar, engagerar och provocerar.

På Twitter giver SVT besked om dokumentarnyt, på hjemmesiden er der interviews med fine svenske instruktører som PeÅ Holmquist (om hans seneste Gaza-film), Erik Gandini (om Videocracy, filmen om Berlusconi), Nina Hedenius (om den fremragende film “Naturens Gång”) og Nahid Persson (filmen om persiske Farah Diba) – og en del film kan ses på nettet. Med andre ord: SVT tager dokumentaren alvorligt. Foto: The Last Tightrope Dancers in Armenia, vist på K-Special.
