VPRO Tegenlicht

Tegenlicht, VPRO‘s weekly, 50-minute, Future Affairs- program, balances on the edge of storytelling and journalism. It focuses on our globalized world in which societies, economies and cultures seek a new equilibrium. Backlight aims to grasp the quintessence of prominent trends and developments.

The series shifts between two modes of communication: it provides in-depth analysis of new developments by leading intellectuals, visionaries and mavericks – the architects of change. At the same time, it applies daring cinematic techniques, capturing the effects these changes have on the daily lives of the real world‘s citizens.

Tegenlichtis appreciated by an inspired community that seeks a deeper understanding of worldwide developments and policymakers alike. Backlight targets a worldwide audience. The program has been bought by broadcasters from Canada to Korea and from Finland to Argentina.
