ZDF Enterprises’ "Size Matters" nominated for Content Innovation Awards 2017
Mainz, 31st August 2017
The science program “Size Matters” (2x50’), produced by Jasper James’ Screen Glue in association with ZDF, arte, BBC4 and ZDF Enterprises, has been nominated in the category “Factual TV program of the Year” of the Content Innovation Awards 2017. This larger than life two-part special, that had its world premiere at ZDFE.factual’s London Screening in mid-June, will show that when it comes to the universe, size really does matter. The audience is taken to a series of parallel worlds where size can be changed, and in doing so, the biggest (and the smallest) questions in the universe will be answered in the most unforgettable way.
The Content Innovation Awards are an international event celebrating innovation in content, distribution and delivery and the wide-ranging achievements of the companies and individuals who bring video content to the world. They recognize innovation from content providers, distributors and technology companies that are helping transform today’s global television industry.
Ralf Rückauer, Vice President ZDFE.factual with ZDF Enterprises: “We are very pleased to participate in the Content Innovation Awards with one of the projects I am most passionate about. “Size Matters” is such a unique program in every respect. And Jasper James is a genius when it comes to converting top notch and highbrow scientific expertise into a mass appealing, almost magnetic TV experience for people like you and me. “Size Matters” is pure and groundbreaking innovation – for me it is definitely THE factual TV program of the year.”
