ARD spontaneously upset the evening program – that is the sad reason
the ARD spontaneously turns her evening program upside down.
Spectators had to be at the ARD tune in to some changes at prime time. The whole thing has a serious background.
ARD overturns the program
On Sunday evening (August 8th), ARD broadcast the “Tagesthemen” at 9.45pm. The news broadcast was originally scheduled for 11:15 p.m.
After the “Topics of the Day”, a “Weltspiegel Extra” followed at 10:15 pm. The reason: The ARD devoted itself in detail to the serious forest fires in southern Europe. The crime thriller “Inspector Bäckström”, which should actually have started at 9.45 p.m., only started after the “Weltspiegel Extra”.
ARD with special broadcast on forest fires
For a few days, violent fires have raged in Turkey and Greece in particular, destroying forests and settlements. As the ARD announced, presenter Natalie Amiri will report for the special broadcast of the “Weltspiegel” from the particularly badly hit regions in Greece.

Amiri’s colleague Katharina Willinger was meanwhile in Turkey for ARD and spoke to residents, emergency services and hotel operators who, in addition to the outbreak of the corona pandemic, are now going through the second major catastrophe within a very short time.
The program at 8.15 p.m. remained unaffected by ARD. There was a repetition of a “crime scene” from Dortmund.

ARD reports from Greece and Turkey
The ARD broadcast some reports from Turkey and Greece on Sunday evening. The two countries are particularly hard hit by the forest fires.
Fires got completely out of control in the suburbs of Athens on Tuesday. As a result, four major towns were evacuated, which resulted in thousands of people having to seek refuge in other parts of the Greek capital.
But there were also large forest and wild fires in the south of Italy and Bulgaria. In Italy, the islands of Sardinia and Sicily were particularly affected. Quite a few tourists had to be brought to safety there on boats. (dhe)
