‘Distribution and Viewing of television in the Nordic countries’ is the first comprehensive and consolidated report providing data from linear and online viewing of TV drama in the Nordics.
The research paper written by Rasmus Helles, together with Cecilie Astrupgaard, Signe Sophus Lai and Eva Novrup Redval who all have experience in academic research in audience measurement, TV production and distribution, is based on quantitative analysis and qualitative interviews with television schedulers and acquisition executives from the Nordic region.
Petri Kemppinen, CEO at Nordisk Film & TV Fond says: “A few years back we published a report on how the Nordic films are doing in the neighbouring countries and globally. Already then we discovered lack of comparable data on the performance of the top Nordic series. Hence the decision to commission this analysis. The report clearly proves how well some Nordic series perform across borders. Scheduling of the shows and marketing them seem to have a huge impact.”
The 21 TV series (including 19 supported by the Fund) selected for the analysis comprise: 1864, Dicte-Crime Reporter, Follow the Money, The Team, Norskov, The Seaside Hotel for Denmark, Bordertown, Tellus for Finland, Trapped for Iceland, Acquitted, Lilyhammer, Nobel, Occupied, The Heavy Water War, The Third Eye for Norway, Blue Eyes, Jordskott, Midnight Sun, Modus, Spring Tide and The Bridge for Sweden.
Some of the key findings are the following:
