Arte, BBC pact for 10 projects a year

Most will be docus, aired on new digital channel BBC4

CANNES — European culture channel Arte and the BBC Monday inked an open-ended cooperation pact at Mipcom to develop and produce around 10 projects a year.

In Britain, the fare, mostly documentaries, will air on the pubcaster’s new digital culture channel BBC 4, set to launch next year.

BBC 4 controller Roly Keating said the number and types of programs could increase in the future.

Current productions include docus about filmmaker Louis Malle and the Real Madrid soccer club.

Jerome Clement, VP of the French/German web, said the deal was an important step for Arte to broaden international cooperation to offer viewers programs that reflect the diversity of Europe’s cultural heritage.

“This brings Germany, France and Britain together, and that hasn’t always been easy,” quipped Keating, adding that it was “a great example of the new creative ventures made possible by the launch of BBC 4.”
