Anglo-Dutch distribution and production company Off the Fence has sold history specials and science programming, including Rocket Compulsion (pictured), to broadcasters across Germany and France.

Two of Quickfire Media’s one-hour history specials, made in cooperation with ZDF Enterprise, were picked up by ZDF/Arte. Elizabeth I – Killer Queen has new evidence on a murder mystery involving a royal love affair, while doc The Vampire Skeletons features new archaeological finds behind the legend of the vampire.

Red Bull Media House’s Servus TV channel picked up two one-off specials, Ice Man – The Lewis Gordon Pugh Story, on a man who swam a kilometer across Antarctica wearing nothing but Speedos to raise awareness about climate change and the melting ice caps, and Rocket Compulsion, which tells the story of Australian entrepreneur and aviation enthusiast, David Mayman, who aims to build and free-fly his own “Rocket Belt.”

Lastly, OTF has sold 10 hours of science programming to Spiegel TV and Autentic’s Spiegel Wissen channel and four hours of nature and wildlife content to France Télévisions.

Ludo Dufour, sales executive, OTF said: “Germany and France are key territories for OTF and we look forward to securing further deals as we move into 2012.”
