Connect the World
Connect the World will join the dots of stories and events by exploring how an event or circumstance in one part of the world can have significant impact and reach elsewhere.
It's the connections - or links - that matter.
During this hour, CNN will spin the globe around each story; diving into its past, looking to its future, and highlighting the people, places and problems that inform it. Consider the recent attacks in Mumbai: In this case Connects would explore the ramifications felt in Pakistan, Israel and the UK, the intervention and condemnation of the world's political community, the history of unrest within India, and the long-term global consequences of the attack. Guided by our Field Intelligence, Connects will journey into the multidimensional character of global events.
- Content commissioned from the best of CNN's International Newsgathering.
- Sharp analysis from the Connections Crew, a cast of regular contributors who are experts in their fields, whether it be finance, geopolitics, specific regions or otherwise.
- Compelling interviews.
- Dynamic films, cyber dialogue and cutting edge graphics.
Presented from London and sometimes from the road, Connect the World takes viewers on a sweeping journey across continents, beyond headlines, and into the histories, possibilities, and depths of the stories that are changing our world today. Connect the World is intelligent viewing for the internationalist in an interdependent world.
It starts April 20th and airs right before BackStory. But who is the presenter?
iDesk is listed twice (at its normal time and after Quest), so I'm assuming the latter is a placeholder for something else. Everything else looks the same.
