New webdoc from Global Ideas
With its latest webdoc, DW invites children young and old to explore the underwater world in the South Pacific with Namati – a young coral off the coast of Vanuatu. Namati’s World is the latest webdoc from the Global Ideas team. It offers spectacular underwater video footage and a story full of suspense. Namati tells the story of her amazing experiences off the coast of Pele Island in the Pacific archipelago nation of Vanuatu. At 114 years of age, Namati is still a child. Brain corals can live to be over a thousand years old – that is, if they can withstand the effects of global climate change such as the warming of the world’s oceans.

New streaming partners in China
DW has secured distribution of several lifestyle and culture programs on four leading Chinese video portals – including v.huanqiu.com, youku.com, tudou.com and ku6.com. These new partners place great importance on offering high quality, interesting, relevant, international programming to their audiences and reach approximately one million viewers throughout China. “Networks in China are clearly gearing to meet their viewers’ demand for information, insights and true-life glimpses of how the other half lives,” says Petra Schneider, DW’s Director of Distribution. “Their choice for DW’s specialized content – all things European – indicates their confidence that our content will satisfy this demand.”
Among the titles that have been chosen are the Chinese editions of Global Ideas and Future Now. Global Ideas showcases people whose innovative ideas are helping combat global warming – from Thailand to Honduras, Jordan, India and Laos. A multinational team of authors, researchers, TV and online reporters works on a multimedia presentation of the projects. The result is www.ideasforacoolerworld.org, an online platform that offers video content as well as background information on the topics. Future Now presents 20 visionary scientific projects on the key fields of communication, the environment, mobility and health. Other titles in English include everything from science to travel. Discover Germany offers a comprehensive travel guide to destinations across Europe.
