Univisjon

Univisjon

Since Univisjon was established in 1993, it has become the leading independent producer of science TV-documentaries in Norway. Univisjon's programmes are broadcasted mainly by the two largest television channels in Norway - NRK and TV2. Several productions have also been distributed internationally. Through TV-documentaries, Univisjon presents scientific issues to a wide audience. Univisjon has a regular staff of eight people and in-house, high-end editing facilities. Univisjon is owned by the University of Bergen. We have unique relationships with scientists in various fields of research. We also collaborate with top international scientists.

Univisjon is constantly producing and developing TV-documentaries and series. The company's producers and directors have carved themselves a unique niche in the world of TV-media. Their extensive experience in the domain of science, working closely with scientists, makes it possible for Univisjon to reach out to a wide audience and increase popular knowledge and understanding of science. Univisjon is the television production unit at the University of Bergen. It sorts under the Communication and Media department, which main objective is to consolidate and further develop the University's primary goals; to pass on information and knowledge to the general public. Univisjon achieves this by producing popular science TV-documentaries.
