    Default what are "tv film documentaries"?

    Dear teachers,
    I read one sentence today.
    I work for TV film documentaries.
    I am puzzled, "TV film documentaries", is it a TV programme or a film?

    Please help me .
    thanks

    It seems it is a film as the speaker says. Maybe the TV she works for is the producer of documentary movies.

    If there is a distinction, then a film documentary sounds to me like a single piece, rather than a series, so it would be a special one-off film, maybe of greater length than normal.
