TV Programs

Since its establishment in 2004, Nobel Media has worked with award-winning and international television companies such as Blakeway Productions, BBC WN and October Films to produce a diverse portfolio of television programs featuring Nobel Laureates and their Nobel Prize awarded work. Choose from our Nobel Laureate Documentaries which have covered the Nobel Prizes of recent years, or delve into our Science Documentaries to learn more about the mysteries of modern medicine today.

The hour-long TV documentary Nobel Laureates is comprised of short portraits featuring Nobel Laureates explaining their Nobel Prize-awarded achievements and talking about their backgrounds. There are eight programs of this format (years 2004-2011).

Our half-hour long documentaries focus on a particular year’s Peace or Literature Laureate and have featured such prominent Nobel Laureates and personalities such as Doris Lessing, Barack Obama and Mario Vargas Llosa.

The Science Documentaries focus on the field of medicine, and tell the story of Nobel Prize related discoveries in this field.

Other TV programs featuring Nobel Laureates includes the discussion program Nobel Minds, produced by BBC WN and SVT. Each year, the Laureates gather for a round table discussion at the Royal Library in Stockholm to discuss issues of global concern as well as their own achievements and inspiration.
