UNTV and UN Video

UN Video produces two television series throughout the year: 21st Century, the monthly 30-minute newsmagazine featuring human-interest stories in a dynamic, field-oriented style; and UN in Action, the series of short features on the work of the United Nations in the field. UN Video also produces Year in Review, the 15-minute documentary produced annually in December that captures the major highlights of the Organization's activities and initiatives during the year in the life of the United Nations that provides an excellent overview of the events that affected the world.

UN TV provides live daily feeds of meetings, conferences and special events at UN Headquarters in New York and around the world. These daily TV feeds are used regularly by the three main syndicators -- APTN, Reuters, and the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) -- as well as many individual broadcasters.

The United Nations and its Agencies invite major international broadcasters to join in distribution partnerships that offer a full range of bold, engaging and diverse television programming. The UN welcomes innovative ideas for collaboration in the form of co-productions, new genres or TV formats that will enable us to diversify our audience.

To become a partner, broadcasters should be an official, established media organization, channel or network, for at least the past two years; have a minimum audience size of one million viewers; and provide feedback on content and actual broadcast. UN Video programmes are free of charge to authorized broadcasters who have negotiated a Letter of Agreement with specific terms and conditions. The selection of partners is at the discretion of the UN Promotion and Distribution Unit.
