Nordic TV partnership breaks all records
2014 was a record-breaking year for Nordvision. Collaboration for children’s programmes in particular increased, according to Nordvision’s annual report for 2014/2015.

The volume of co-productions, programme exchanges, archive clips and news exchanges among the partners is rising. Furthermore, cooperation in developing and exchanging formats is increasing.
The broadcasters’ collaboration rests on seven genre groups - children, drama, factual programmes, culture, youth, education and investigative journalism - plus the programme exchange collaboration and the Nordvision secretariat in Copenhagen.
The greatest advance has been in children’s programmes, which went from 650 co-productions in 2013 to 950 co-productions in 2014.
