That’s the question we’ll try to answer each week this summer when WIDE ANGLE returns to PBS for its seventh season of primetime documentaries bringing global issues to life through compelling human stories. For our launch on Tuesday, July 1, WIDE ANGLE travels to Sudan for an in-depth eyewitness account of what is happening on the ground in Darfur, a region closed off to the world.
Other shows will explore such critical topics as the plight of Iraqi refugees in Syria and Jordan, the re-birth of Japan’s military, and a bold grassroots health initiative in Mozambique that has cut the maternal death rate in half. And, in China, we’ll embed with high school seniors prepping for an ultra-competitive week of finals. The demanding system that determines who will succeed and who will fail in tomorrow’s China makes America’s college entrance process look like child’s play.
Global issues. Human stories. Join us!
