TVP to Produce Nine Documentaries on Polish Independence in 2018

Written by

WARSAW: The Polish public broadcaster TVP finalised a special competition for documentaries celebrating the 100th anniversary of Polish independence and chose 13 projects that will go into production in 2018. Nine documentaries and four feature reports were chosen from among 57 submissions.

The first ones will be aired by TVP Historia. All projects will be produced by regional branches of TVP with a planned total budget of 236,529 EUR / 1 m PLN.

"I believe that they will allow our viewers to know the lesser known and famous examples of bravery, willpower and intelligence of our ancestors like the stories from the Kresy region - the battles for Bobrujsk, Lithuanian Mińsk, Dynaburg or Kowno. We are also interested in heroes fighting with the Prussian occupant in Silesia and Pomerania, as well as the fight between the Polish and the soviet agents just before the war broke out in 1920", TVP Board Member Maciej Stanecki told FNE.
