09 | SEPTEMBER - Integration
Heimat Fremde Heimat - Silvana Meixner, Minority Editorial Office
The human being with his or her resources, challenges and needs is always in the interest of "Heimat Fremde Heimat". With the five-part series "Explain to me how you live", the aspect of disability was included in the considerations. Life realities of people with disabilities are brought closer to the audience. Editor Ajda Sticker went into their everyday lives to find out what barriers and prejudices they encounter, but also what perspectives and wishes they have. The series - realised with the help of the Ministry of Social Affairs and with the support of Franz-Joseph Huainigg, ORF's commissioner for accessibility - impresses with its sustainability. In order to reduce prejudices, pupils are to deal with the topic and come into direct contact with the protagonists. In addition, all contributions were provided with audio description. The idea of open audio description of the moderation and at the beginning of the contribution is also new, in order to be able to convey this acoustic experience to the entire audience.
§ 10. (3) The overall programme shall strive for quality, innovation, integration, equality and understanding.
