German financial news channel DAF will continue to show documentaries and service magazines from ZDF Enterprises. The commercial free-to-air channel has extended the collaboration it started with the rights sales subsidiary of German public broadcaster ZDF in early 2013 for 2014 and 2015.

DAF acquired an extensive international programme package from ZDF Enterprises which includes seasons two and three of Ice Pilots as well as Mayday - Alarm in the Cockpit, Origins of Technology and Modern Miracles.

New additions to the schedule include the series Designer People, Mafia's Greatest Hits and Myth Hunters. The BBC series Timewatch will also be continued. DAF also secured further short films from ZDF Enterprises covering topics such as history, current events, culture, science, health, travel, nutrition and entertainment.

"With this ideal mix of day time, economy, finance and stock market reporting - our core business - and high quality documentaries from ZDF Enterprises in prime time, we are steadily approaching our goal of making DAF accessible to a broader public and expanding the station's acceptance," DAF chairman Conrad Heberling said.
