Since 1988, Alexander Kluge (who is best known outside of Germany for his work as a prominent member of the New German Cinema) has been actively involved in the production of a number of experimental programmes for German television. Constructed, in a similar vein to his films, out of a highly diverse collection of materials (including photographs, drawings, diagrams, clips from movies, and documentary footage) Kluge s 10 vor 11 (10 to 11), News and Stories, Mitternachts magazin (Midnight Magazine), and Primetime Spatausgabe (Prime Time Late Edition) are - in both their form and content - certainly unlike anything else on German television.
