COLOGNE — Germany’s ZDF and Poland’s Telewizja Polska (TVP) have inked an agreement of cooperation and exchange of footage.
The deal between the two public broadcasters was inked by the respective heads, Markus Schaechter and Robert Kwiatowski, during the general meeting of the European Broadcasting Union in Stockholm. It covers mutual access to news and archive material as well as support for production, ZDF said in a statement. Its topper Schaechter said the agreement was a natural continuation of the two countries’ existing cooperation in media questions.
Over the last three years, ZDF has entered numerous alliances with webs worldwide, including Japan’s TBS, Iran’s IRIB, ITN in the U.K., NBC in the U.S., and Al-Jazeera in the Middle East.
