Scandal in German Football!

Referee Robert Hoyzer in an exclusive interview for ZDF. The scandalous referee Robert Hoyzer comments on the reproaches concerning the manipulation of football matches.

According to the German Football League, Hoyzer is supposed to have influenced football matches of the Second Devision as well as DFB Cup Games on which he bet beforehand. Consequently, he received a large amount of money. Other European Leagues are possibly involved in the betting scandal as well, unknown to what extent. This suspicion was confirmed so that Robert Hoyzer is on remand until further notice.

ZDF does not only offer you material of the exclusive interview but also other reports dealing with this unique case of the German Football History that shocked all football fans and all people in charge! Do not hesitate to make an inquiry for footage!


Death Across the Waves - The Drama of the Tsunami Floods

ZDF Archive offers outstanding exclusive footage material

On 26th December 2004 horror gained a face of its own: within a matter of seconds the giant tsunami wave wreaked havoc with the lives of countless people across 5 countries. Today the UN estimates the disaster cost the lives of 280,000 people, with a large number of children among the victims adding to the tragedy. In addition, hundreds of thousands of people are injured or homeless - and the fate of many of those still missing may never be established conclusively.

ZDF set itself the task of providing comprehensive information about this catastrophe: neutral, without sensationalism, and always reflecting the human dignity of those affected. At extremely short notice, the most successful TV fund-raising event in the world was organised and succeeded in raising 50 million euros for the victims of the flooding. As part of this TV event, ZDF broadcast comprehensive reports about the origins of tsunamis, the after effects of a tidal wave, the fate of secluded ethnic groups and the potential for crisis prevention.

We have now compiled into a broadcast ready clipreel, comprehensive reports from ZDF correspondents in the affected countries of Southeast Asia that also include exclusive amateur videos and computer animation sequences that illustrate underwater earthquakes and the shifting tectonic plates.

This worldwide exclusive ZDF material condenses many hours of reporting and is available by contacting the ZDF Archive Sales,1872,2040297,00.html
