2014 NDR ad for Sesamstrasse

Norddeutscher Rundfunk, commonly abbreviated as NDR, is a German broadcasting company (both television and radio), based in Hamburg and part of the larger ARD consortium. It has its roots in the earlier NORAG and has existed as NDR since 1956. In the 1980s/1990s its TV branch was known as N3, renamed NDR Fernsehen in 2001. Since 1973, it has been the primary broadcaster of Sesamstrasse and aired many of the specials and spin-offs.

Over the years, many NDR employees, including reporters and actors, have appeared as themselves on Sesamstrasse. The sketch series "Ernie und Bert Go Music" had Bert and Ernie meeting the members of the NDR symphony orchestra.
