Beyond doc titles make moves into Scandinavia and Central Europe

Several 1x60 minute documentary program titles from Sydney-based Beyond Distribution are making their way into Scandinavia, Central Europe and, well, beyond following a series of deals wrapped up at MIPCOM. Lost Adventures of Childhood (a realscreen MIPCOM Pick) has been sold to Planete Poland, Spektrum Hungary, Ceska Programova Spolecnost Czech Republic and Slovakia, Yes/DBS Israel and YLE Teema Finland. The 200kg Kid, which tells the story of an obese 15-year-old having undergoing lap band surgery, has been snapped up by Yes/DSB Israel as well as TV3 Denmark. And How To Divorce & Not Wreck the Kids will soon be seen on Planete Poland and Israel Educational Television.
