introduction
The network of MEDIA Desks and Antennae
in Europe is delighted to publish the second
edition of the Drama Directory, a Guide to
European TV Drama Commissioning Editors
and Buyers.
We had become aware of an information
gap in this area in our work with clients,
in particular with applicants for the TV
Broadcasting support scheme. We thought
the best way to address this was to make use
of our own network, with each MEDIA Desk
providing information on TV Channels in its
own territory. It has proved to be a rewarding
collaboration – a true European co-production.
We would like to take this opportunity to
thank the participating Broadcasters for
their generosity in providing the information
contained in this Directory, the European
Audiovisual Observatory for allowing us to
use information from the MAVISE database
and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland for
sponsoring this publication.

This directory is complementary to all market
and database initiatives funded by MEDIA
with the aim to achieve a transparent single
market for all Audiovisual programmes in
Europe. Examples of other MEDIA publications
include the Training and Networks guide and
the Markets and Networks Guide which can be
downloaded from the MEDIA website.
We hope the Drama Directory will continue to
be a useful resource for Television Drama
Producers and Broadcasters alike. We welcome
your feedback and suggestions for future
editions.
THE MEDIA DESKS AND ANTENNAE

FOREWORD
One of the priorities of the MEDIA
Programme is to increase the circulation
of European audiovisual works inside and
outside the European Union. There are
particular challenges involved in seeking
to boost the circulation of European
Drama projects. We therefore very much
welcome the initiative of the European
network of MEDIA Desks and Antennae
in publishing this Drama Directory which
will be a useful resource for European
producers seeking investors and buyers
for their projects.
The MEDIA Programme supports
Television Drama at the development
stage through the Single project and
Slate Funding support schemes. There is
also a dedicated action line to support
the Television Broadcasting of European
Audiovisual works including TV Drama.

As this scheme requires investment from
at least three broadcasters in different
member states of the European Union,
it is clear that this Drama Directory will
prove to be a valuable resource for
potential applicants.
The collaboration of the MEDIA Desks
and Antenna in creating this Directory is
an example of the Network in action and
showcases European co-operation at its
best.

Support for Television Broadcasting
MEDIA offers a funding scheme
that supports Television
Broadcasting of European
Audiovisual Works.

The MEDIA 2007 Programme aims to promote the transnational dissemination of European audiovisual works
produced by independent production companies by

one hand and independent producers and distributors
on the other. This scheme is open to Independent
European production companies to produce fiction,
creative documentaries or animated films.
The following criteria apply.

• The applicant company must have the commitment
of at least three broadcasters in different member
states of the European Union for the proposed
project.

• The minimum eligible duration for individual drama

projects or drama series is 50 minutes; 25 minutes for
Creative Documentary and 24 minutes for animation
projects

• Applications must have 50% of the production

finance for the project in place and the production
budget must be minimum 50% financed by
European sources.

For Fiction and Animation projects, the maximum
sum awarded is €500,000 per work and this financial
contribution may not exceed 12.5% of the production
budget. The maximum sum awarded for a Documentary
Project is €300,000 and may not exceed 20% of the
production budget.
In the current MEDIA Programme, there is one call
annually with two deadlines per call.
For more information, please contact your local
MEDIA Desk – Contact Details are at the back of
this guide.

• Proposals must be submitted at the latest on the first
day of principal photography.

The most important broadcaster in Austria is still the public service ORF, which has
gradually been losing market share since the introduction of private television. The
channels ORF1 and ORF2 had a combined average market share of 37% in 2010 (down
almost 10% since 2006). ORF2 is still the most popular channel, with 22.5% of viewers
on average. German television is also popular in Austria. The main German private
channels have Austrian versions, with a combined audience share in 2010 of more than
25% (the most important of these being RTL Österreich, Sat1 Österreich and Prosieben
Austria). German public service channels had a combined audience share of more than
10%. The main private channel is ATV (launched in 2003) with an audience share of
3.4% in 2010. More private channels have recently been launched: Austria 9 TV, (Burda
Verlag) in 2007; and Puls 4 (ProSiebenSat.1 Media AG) in 2008. In 2009 Salzburg TV
was rebranded as Servus TV and became a national channel. (Audience data source:
Eurodata TV Worldwide/ AGTT / GfK Teletest).

Observatory on behalf of the DG Communication of the European Commission.

Following an investigation completed by the European Commission in 2009 regarding
the financing and remit of the public broadcaster ORF, a new media law was passed
in July 2010. The regulatory authority KommAustria, was given responsibility for legal
supervision of the public service broadcaster (ORF).The financing of the ORF should
follow EU standards regarding commercial and non-commercial activities, and a clear
public service remit of the broadcaster should be developed. New services have to
undergo a “public interest test”.

The three Communities (Flemish, French and German-speaking) each have responsibility for audiovisual communication and
constitute separate markets, the common feature being the fact that all three markets have been extensively cabled for three
decades and are thus able to receive the channels of neighbouring countries. They each have their own systems of regulating
the audiovisual media and their own public service broadcasters, namely the VRT, the RTBF and the BRF respectively.
The main players in the Flemish Community are VRT, which operates the public channels Één, Ketnet and Canvas, and VMMa
(Vlaamse Media Maat schappij), which runs the channels VTM, 2BE, Anne, Jim and vtmKzoom.
Één (VRT) continues to dominate the market, with a steadily rising daily audience share, which reached 33% in 2010 (compared
with 28.7% in 2006). Behind Één in audience terms are the channel VTM (20.4%) and the second public channel Ketnet/Canvas
(children’s programmes during the day and cultural programmes in the evening), followed by VT4 and 2BE. The rest of the
market is split between a number of special interest channels set up in the Flemish Community as well as French and Dutch
language channels.
In the French Community, the main operators of television channels are, apart from RTBF (La Une, La Deux and La Trois),
the RTL group, with its three channels RTL-TVI, Club RTL and Plug RTL that target Belgium but operate under Luxembourg
law, and the AB group (AB3, AB4 and AB Shopping). RTBF has significantly modified its range of channels in 2010: it ceased
broadcasting its international channel RTBF Sat in February, launched HD versions of its three channels in May and revamped
the programming line-up of La Trois in September.
RTL-TVI continues to dominate the market with a 21.5% daily audience (and a prime time market share of 28.8%). The second
most important Belgian channel is La Une (RTBF), with a 14.5% market share. The other Belgian channels have a combined
share of less than 5% (Club RTL, La Deux, AB3, etc) and a significant number of viewers still turn to the French channels, which
command about a third of the audience share. (Audience data source: Eurodata TV Worldwide / CIM / GfK Audimetrie SA)
In the German-speaking Community, the majority of the population (about 74 000 inhabitants) choose to watch the German
television channels.
SOURCE: MAVISE Database – a database provided by the European Audiovisual
Observatory on behalf of the DG Communication of the European Commission.

Almost 100% of Belgian households subscribe to pay-TV, this mainly being due to the extent of the country’s cable network.

cyprus
The broadcasting market in Cyprus is dominated by the channels of the public service
broadcaster CYBC (RIK1, RIK2, RIK HD and RIK Sat), which had a combined audience
share of 19.7% in 2010, and four national private channels: Sigma, ANT1, Mega and
Plus TV, who all registered an increased audience share in 2010 (21.3%, 20.7%, 14.3%
and 4.1% respectively). (audience data source : Eurodata TV Worldwide / AGB Nielsen
Media Research Cyprus )
As well as ANT1 and Mega, a new sister channel of a Greek commercial station was
launched in 2011 (Mad Cyprus) and another is expected by the end of 2011, with the free
terrestrial channel Star Channel Cyprus due to replace terrestrial pay-TV channel Alfa
TV, which was taken off the airwaves in summer 2011.
The transition to DTT has particularly affected the local television landscape in Cyprus.
In the absence of a local DTT network, several local stations have begun to broadcast
nationally, in some cases with a revised programme schedule, while others have had to
cease broadcasting either temporarily or permanently.
Analogue terrestrial signals were switched off on 1 July 2011, after a short transitional
period.

The Danish market is the only one in Europe in which public channels, operated
by the two public broadcasters, DR and TV2, still attract more than half of average
daily audiences. The TV2 channel continues to dominate the market (28.1% of daily
audiences in 2010), followed by DR1 (19.2%). The two main public channels therefore
account for 47.2% of average daily audiences in 2010 (61.9% in 2006). Despite the
creation of various special-interest channels, the entire public sector saw its total
audience drop from 72.4% in 2006 to 62.9% in 2010. The most popular private channel
is TV3 (Swedish MTG group), with a steady daily market share of 5%. The other main
private channels are TV3+ (MTG group, 3.4% daily audience share) and Kanal 5 (ProSiebenSat.1 Media AG), whose daily audience share grew from 2.9% in 2009 to 3.4% in
2010. (Audience Data Source: Eurodata TV Worldwide / Gallup TV meter)

Observatory on behalf of the DG Communication of the European Commission.

The Danish public authorities decided to privatise TV2 in May 2003, but
implementation of this decision was delayed after questions were raised concerning
the financing of the broadcaster. In May 2004, the European Commission concluded
that TV2 had received illegal public funding and demanded that it pay back EUR 84.4
million to the Danish authorities. An appeal was lodged against the recapitalisation
plan and the Court of First Instance of the European Communities set aside the
Commission’s decision in its judgment of 22 October 2008. In spring 2008, the Ministry
of Culture announced that emergency aid would be provided to stabilise TV2, which is
heavily in debt. This aid, amounting to EUR 67 million, was approved by the European
Commission in August 2008. Finally, in January 2009 the government published a plan
aimed at partially transforming TV2 into a pay-TV channel from 2012.

Finland is one of Europe’s most advanced countries in terms of digital broadcasting:
analogue terrestrial signals were switched off in 2007 and cable television
transmissions have also been fully digitised since 2008. Finland is now turning to
second generation digital terrestrial television (DVB-T2). However, these changes have
not radically altered the balance in the broadcasting market, where the main players
remain the public group YLE (YLE TV1, YLE TV2, YLE Teema and Swedish-language
channel YLE FST5), the Finnish private media group Sanoma (Nelonen, JIM, LIV) and
Swedish group Bonnier (MTV3, Sub and Nordic Canal+ pay-TV channels).
The public broadcasting group YLE regained some ground in 2010 and had an audience
market share of 45.1%. In particular, YLE TV1 stabilised its daily audience market share
at 21.6%, whilst YLE TV2 gained more than a percentage point to return to 19.4%.
The audience of the first private channel, MTV3, has continued to decline reaching
21.5%, which is a loss of nearly 8% since 2006. (Audience Data Source: EurodataTV
Worldwide/Finnpanel)
The Finnish multi-channel distribution market continues to be dominated by cable
services. Although there are still more than 20 active operators, the market is
becoming more concentrated. In particular, in July 2010, DNA took control of the cable
activities of Sanoma Television, i.e. its Welho package.

Observatory on behalf of the DG Communication of the European Commission.

Due to the popularity of cable television in Finland, satellite and IPTV packages are
struggling to break through.

The channel TF1 still has the largest audience share but only had a daily audience share of 24.5%
in 2010, which was 7.1 percentage points lower than in 2006. This was the third consecutive
year in which the private channel’s daily audience was below 30%. In second and third place
respectively were the two public channels France 2 (16.1%) and France 3 (10.7%), both of which
are also experiencing a steady decline in their audiences. In particular, France 3 is followed
close behind by M6 (10.4%). Following these, eleven channels have audience market shares
of between 1 and 4%. These include a number of new free-to-air DTT channels, such as TMC
(TF1 Group) and W9 (RTL), which hold market shares comparable to those of the incumbent
terrestrial channels, such as Canal+, France 5 and Arte. The new free-to-air DTT channels had
a combined daily audience share of 19.7% in 2010, compared with 15.2% in 2009 and 11.1% in
2008. (Audience data source: Eurodata TV Worldwide / Médiamétrie / Médiamat).
The Canal+ group’s acquisition of the TPS package in 2007 was challenged in September 2011 by
the Competition Authority, which withdrew its decision to allow the merger and fined Canal+
30 million euros, stating that the company had not met the commitments it had entered into
at the time (especially with regard to making channels available to third-party distributors). In
addition, Canal+ and Orange, which were for a long time locked in a dispute about rights and
channel exclusivity, announced they had reached an agreement in July 2011 on the acquisition by
Canal+ of a 33.33% stake in Orange Cinéma Séries, the package that groups together Orange’s
five premium cinema and fiction channels.

The reform of public audiovisual services, which began in 2008, has continued to generate
