To mark the 100-year history of the National Circus Knie, SRF, RTS, RSI and RTR are implementing a national television project. The two-part family saga of 90 minutes each is a format consisting of fictional and documentary parts as well as archive footage and is conceived as a unit of over 100 years of family history.

The documentary about 100 years of Swiss national circus is a collaboration of SRF Factual Entertainment, RTS, RSI, RTR, tellfilm gmbh and B&B Endemol Shine.
