Fifa, TWI working on television programmes

MUMBAI: As part of their 2004 Centennial celebrations, Fifa is working in conjunction with TWI on the production and distribution of a series of television programmes and special features. These highlight the work and development of football's governing body over the last 100 years.

Two programmes have been produced. One is a four part half hour documentary. It uses four themes to trace the development of the game worldwide: The other comprises of 30 one-minute vignettes called Fifa: 100 years of Timeless Moments. These are available for worldwide distribution on all television platforms. In addition, a further 52 one-minute vignettes will be featured in a regular weekly slot on Futbol Mundial throughout Fifa's 2004 Centenary year.

In India Futbol Mundial airs on ESPN Star Sports. The first of these features is dedicated to the German goalkeeping legend Sepp Maier.

A company release informs that each part of the documentary series fuses rarely seen footage from the Fifa archive with specialist footage from TWI's archive. The first of these programmes, The Beautiful Century: 100 Years of Fifa celebrates the growth of football from a popular but fragmented pastime to the sport we know today.

Fifa president Joseph S Blatter added, " The two products highlight the passion that players and fans have for the game. It gives us immense satisfaction to learn that these programmes have already proved to be highly successful, with television stations on every continent having already signed up to broadcast and distribute both products."
