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.

UN Audio

UN News audio products range from our Monday-Friday 'News In Brief', where we summarize the key stories of the day, to our flagship podcast series, 'The Lid Is On'. We aim to bring you fresh interviews daily with UN agency newsmakers, opinion-formers, academics, NGOs and activists who are working through the UN. We will continue with our specialist shows on gender issues and Africa, as part of our expanding stable of in-depth podcasts, which also includes our 'Podcast Classics' from the rich audio archive of UN Radio, stretching back to the 1940s. Please go to our AUDIO HUB to download the full range of bulletins, packages, podcasts and interviews, in easy-to-use mp3 format.

We believe the most effective way to use this content is to include it your own output, and you can find the full 'intro' or cue material by clicking on the TRANSCRIPT button, to the left-hand side of the audio player inside each story. We will also provide a studio-read intro on our interviews and programmes, so that you can use the content unedited, if that's what suits your broadcast format and programming. We hope you enjoy this new multimedia service and continue to use and enjoy our wider range of audio material.
