Plus trente deux (+32)
(Plus Thirty-Two (+32))

Their names are Phung, Georges, Palma, Arnold, Mehdi and Alvin. They're from Vietnam, Syria, Ecuador, Albania, Morocco and Congo and have one thing in common: Belgium has become their home. The first thing people do when they arrive in a new country is get a phone number. Plus Thirty-Two is Belgium's dial-in code. Plus Thirty-Two is also the name of an Instagram series that tells stories of immigration and integration, in a poetic, optimistic manner, and with a very special Belgian touch. It offers multicultural, polyglot slices of lives in the form of a documentary series made of photographs, videos, animations, in a storytelling designed for Instagram consumption.


Trolls, à visages découverts (Ep 1)

Trolls are everywhere, but you never see them. Scourge of our online conversations for some, hero of the free Internet for others, this figure polarizes as much as it fascinates. And yet, no one has ever seen the face of a troll. We don't know how many they are, what motivates them let alone what they look like. With Trolls, we discover the human beings behind these virtual identities. A rare and unique journey with uncovered face in one of the gray areas of freedom of expression on the Internet.

Music Curation Battle: AI vs. Human

One of the most listened to radio shows in Korea organised a special project to explore how data based music curation by AI (Artificial Intelligence) fares in comparison with the music choices made by humans that are more sensitive to emotional sides. The project focused on how to make a good entertainment programme out of this competition, showcasing the ways the new technology works for radio shows. Through this process, the team presented various approaches to the pleasure of listening to music and radio, rather than a competition in which human and artificial intelligence battle out to proclaim a winner. It introduced listeners to wider and more interesting ways of music curation.


De examenklas van 2020
(The Graduation Class of 2020)

Because of Covid-19 there will be no national school-leaving exam for the first time in 75 years. In The Graduation Class of 2020, NOS Stories follows a group of 25 students who show us their world in a time when everything is different and the only certainty is that this will be their last year at school. With The Graduation Class of 2020 NOS Stories wants to make all 200,000 school leavers aware of the fact that they are now part of the daily news. NOS Stories shows them the meaning of the news and questions those responsible for the consequences of their decisions. Because of Covid-19 many things that are typical of a graduation year, such as the gala and the diploma ceremony, were cancelled. Interactive tools make sure that students can still experience these rituals and conclude their final year in a positive way.
