Factual reportage – presented engagingly and disseminated widely – has never been more important. INS has a compelling track record in long-form documentary work to complement our news video production, with experienced documentary producers among our senior staff. No matter the subject matter, we’ve proven time and again that we can get to the heart of an issue in a compelling way and make an active contribution to informed public discourse in the process.
Recent INS documentaries include:
The Clock is Ticking (2019), an inside look at Brexit negotiations following the work of EU lead negotiator Michel Barnier, produced for ARTE, RTBF and VRT.
Le Grain de Sable dans la Machine (2021), examining the structural challenges revealed by the COVID pandemic. Co-produced with Zornproduction International for ARTE, RTBF as well as a dozen other European channels.
Bienvenue Chez Les Soccs (2021), produced for ARTE, which follows a French cricket team helping migrants to integrate and find purpose in their local community.
We are also developing an upcoming documentary on soil degradation for ARTE, and INS also produces the weekly traffic safety series Kijk Uit for Flemish public television.
