'Achter het Nieuws' (VARA) and 'Brandpunt' (KRO) set the standard for a new genre in the early nineteen sixties: Dutch current affairs programmes. Mirjam Prenger is working to determine the extent to which this journalistic genre was truly innovative. As a part of her research, she is assessing the factors underlying their emergence, and the related journalistic innovations. Prenger's research is primarily centred around 'Achter het Nieuws' and the VARA broadcasting association, and focuses on 'Brandpunt' and the KRO broadcasting association where necessary.
