Hitler’s Propaganda Machine

More4 in the UK, National Geographic in Poland, Discovery in Canada and Foxtel in Australia are among the broadcasters to have picked up WildBear Entertainment-produced history and engineering content.

Living in the Shadow of WWII (3×60’) has been acquired by More4 in the UK, AMC Networks for Central Europe, Pluto TV for North America and Latin America, and Foxtel in Australia. Total Content Digital, meanwhile, has taken VoD, DVD and DTO rights to the show in the US.

Total Content Digital has also picked up Hitler’s Propaganda Machine (3×60’), as have UKTV for its Yesterday Channel; A&E Networks in Sweden; Alliant Content in the US, Canada and Lat Am; Foxtel; BBC Studios across Africa; and Tel-Ed Israel.

Further history titles Total War (6×60’), which has gone to A&E Networks in Sweden and BBC Studios in Africa, and 101 Events that Made the 20th Century (8×60’), which has been taken by AMC Networks for Central Europe, Germany’s Spiegel TV, Novo Media in the Middle East and Roku in the US. Foxtel and Total Content Digital have picked up both programmes.

Elsewhere, National Geographic in Poland has acquired transport innovation-themed title Power (8×60’), as have AMC for Iberia and Central Europe, Alliant Content, Pluto TV, Discovery Networks Asia Pacific, South Korea’s Aceonemedia and Novo Media for Middle Eastern nations including Saudi Arabia and Iraq. U-7 has taken the show across its Central Asian territories such as Azerbaijan and Uzbekistan.

Finally, Mega Mechanics (6×60’) has gone to A&E Networks in the UK, Discovery Europe, Discovery Canada, Alliant Content, Pluto TV, Australia’s 10 Network, TVNZ in New Zealand, Truecorp in Thailand and BBC Studios across Africa, while the Czech Republic’s TV Prima has taken all six of the shows.

The deals were brokered by distributor DRG, whose executive VP of sales, Elin Thomas, said she was hoping for further interest in Australia-based WildBear’s military history content to coincide with the 80th anniversary of the start of World War Two this year.
