DW is now working with TRT Türk to broadcast “DW ile Avrupa” – a program that delves into German and European politics, business and culture. “DW ile Avrupa” has reports and features produced by DW’s Turkish department and will be aired every Friday, with repeats on the weekend. The show is supplemented by individual segments from DW’s television magazines European Journal, Made in Germany and People and Politics to fully accommodate Turkish audiences’ needs. Moderator Özlem Coskun hosts the show.
Following Polish, Romanian, Albanian, Croatian, Bosnian and Macedonian editions, the Turkish show is DW’s seventh to be produced in its Bonn studios for the central and southeastern Europe target area.

DW and its team from New Media has developed a new WebDoc that takes the user on an interactive journey through the Favelas in Brazil. Christoph Kober shows the other side of Rio de Janeiro, with illegally-constructed houses, horrible supply of power and water, and streets that are normally controlled by violent gangs. Manguiera – Life in a Rio de Janeiro Favela is the latest infotainment application from Global Ideas. And, speaking of Global Ideas, the series recently won three design awards from the PromaxBDA World Gold Awards, including gold for “Art Direction & Design: Topical Campaign – News” and silver for “News, Open/Titles” and “Total Package Design – Print”.
Two weeks after the successful start of the cooperation with the Russian business TV channel RBC, DW started a similar project with the Russian IPTV channel Dozhd. Experts from the Russian editorial department in Bonn will be reporting three times each week on current topics and events. The broadcaster has been live since March 2009 and attracts a predominantly younger target audience.
