We tell two kinds of stories. Those you want to hear and those we think you need to hear.
Here are a few examples: There was the Texan firefighter Red Adair who was most afraid of rest, not of fire; the space shuttle Columbia that crashed because NASA didn’t take warnings from their own ranks serious enough; the German novelist Michael Ende who felt right until his death, that he hadn’t written the „right“ book yet; and finally there’s Mother Kung Fu, who has to fight for the survival of her family of nine every single day.
Those stories thrill us and give inspiration for long documentaries that we produce and master ourselves. You can listen to our stories on ZeitZeichen, Deutschlandfunk Nova and WDR 5 Leonardo. Just to be clear, Mother Kung Fu is one foot tall, lives in the Kalahari and is the boss of a rather small family of meerkats.
