In this practitioners’ statement we look closely at the case of the Dutch public broadcaster VPRO and their experience with the open publication of newly produced public broadcasting content in relation to the series The Mind of the Universe. This paper discusses the various stages of open publication, from pre-production to the “afterlife” of the openly published materials. It concludes with recommendations for public broadcasters who want to publish under open licenses, and recommendations to the Wikimedia movement to profit more from openly licensed video.
