Broadcasted nationwide

From late November 2015, new television format Vision - Mission - City Mission will be available through the nationwide programme of cable TV station BW family.tv and provide the wider public with insight into the lives of elderly and old people, who - even though they are highly optimistic and enjoy life - are of course also confronted with problems and restrictions caused by old age. This insight has led to the chairman’s Pastor Dr. Martin Michel decision to initiate the new and unusual project “television from the City Mission”: “We are Karlsruhe’s biggest provider of assistance services for old people and are thus in the best position to show the public what it means to get old and still enjoy a meaningful live every day”. 

Insight into everyday life

But of course moving picture also offer numerous other opportunities: for instance, useful information on how to bed patients, take their blood pressure, on appropriate diets and medical prevention - the television series addresses various issues. 

Among them are also the residential situation, the activity fields of stationary care, day care, assisted living, special support for addicts or mentally ill people. Even though sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words, the dialogues between patients and nursing staff yield impressive insight into the daily routine at the Karlsruhe City Mission.

However, the TV project is also interesting for employees as it reveals how big the overall range actually covered by the institution is and shows what their colleagues experience.  This advanced form of communication is also called Corporate TV. Vision - Mission - City Mission will also be available on the website (www.karlsruher-stadtmission.de) and via social media like Facebook or YouTube.

Production

The television project was realised as a result of the major Baden-based city missions of Heidelberg, Karlsruhe and Freiburg cooperating with each other. Each of them can look back onto a long Christian-diaconal tradition of more than a hundred years. All these institutions base their activities on Christian love. However, the actual focuses of their work do differ in the three cities of Baden. 

The new television format has been produced by Karlsruhe-based film production company ERB Medien GmbH, which has specialised on the sensitive and sophisticated presentation of movies and TV formats.  

Broadcasting

Vision, Mission, City Mission will be broadcasted by bwfamily.tv every Monday and Wednesday
