Camping Coppens - Op weg naar Zweden

Van droom tot werkelijkheid: Staf Coppens en zijn gezin tonen hun - soms hobbelige - weg naar een nieuw leven in Zweden.

De Wonderjaren

Siska en Dieter gaan aan de slag met opvoedingsvragen in 'De wonderjaren

Opvoeden, dat doen alle ouders met vallen en opstaan. Sommigen doen het zoals hun eigen ouders, anderen met het advies van een hulpboek of gewoon op buikgevoel. In het nieuwe De wonderjaren zoeken Siska Schoeters en Dieter Coppens samen met experts een antwoord op de vele vragen die bij ouders leven. Want bij iedere centimeter die kinderen groeien komen nieuwe vragen. Van "Hoe krijg je slechte eters toch aan de groenten?" tot "Wat moet je doen als je kinderen vaak ruzie maken?". Een boeiende zoektocht die verrassend en confronterend is, maar vooral ook nieuwe inzichten oplevert.

De Code Van Coppens

The Way Out

What happens when two celebrity duo’s are locked in a room full of mysterious challenges and have to use their science skills to crack the code and escape first? Thrills, laughs, adventure and ultimately: a winning team.Each episode is built around a thematic mission: Who can prevent a power plant from a nuclear meltdown? Who manages to steal a diamond ring from a bank vault or can escape the haunted house in time? Each team is sent into the immersive escape room to complete the mission. Faced with a series of scientific experiments, they have to work together and keep their cool in a race against the clock. Two hosts (the Coppens brothers) observe the duo’s progress in a control room and assist (and tease) them as they try to escape. The brothers explain the science behind some of the most surprising experiments in a tv studio, assisted by an expert. Knowing the correct solution to the tests, the audience can gloat over the duo’s (often hilarious) struggles through trial and error.

Durf Te Vragen

 

 

In het nieuwe Durf te vragen nodigt Siska Schoeters elke aflevering een groep mensen uit waar we stiekem heel veel vragen over hebben, maar die we niet zelf in hun gezicht durven stellen.

“Koop je je kleren in de kinderwinkel?” vragen aan iemand met dwerggroei; “Heb je overwogen om ooit in therapie te gaan?” aan mensen die van BDSM houden; of “Dat celibaat, moet dat niet afgeschaft worden?” aan een priester: Siska verzamelde deze en vele andere interessante, grappige maar ook wel gedurfde vragen bij het grote publiek.

De antwoorden van de groep zijn altijd eerlijk en openhartig en leveren een verrassende, soms geestig, soms confronterende inkijk in hun leefwereld, dromen en angsten op. Als voorstander van het directe vragen duikt Siska zelf nog dieper in het verhaal van sommige getuigen. Ze gaat een dag met hen op pad en stelt op haar eigen directe manier extra vragen, om hen zo nog beter te kunnen begrijpen.

Siska Schoeters: "Durf te vragen is een programma dat echt op mijn lijf geschreven is. Het ligt in het verlengde van wat ik eigenlijk al jaren op de radio doe: ongegeneerd nieuwsgierig zijn. Dit programma heeft me echt doen inzien dat we tegenwoordig heel snel oordelen over iemand. Er is te weinig dialoog en dat willen we met Durf te vragen opnieuw aanwakkeren."
