ON THE COVER AARON BROWN RETURNS TO BROADCAST JOURNALISM ON WIDE ANGLE WIDE ANGLE, PBS’ weekly international affairs series, launches its seventh season starting July 1st. Since its inception, the series has garnered dozens of awards and widespread critical praise; no other program provides deeper international and foreign policy coverage. This season, acclaimed international reporter and Minnesota native Aaron Brown joins the WIDE ANGLE team as its new host. With his engaging, award-winning brand of insight and analysis, Brown offers substantive understanding of worldwide issues to American Rebel Group in Sudan audiences. “Aaron brings a quarter century of distinguished journalism experience to our viewers,” said Pamela Hogan, executive producer of WIDE ANGLE. “His incisive ability to interpret world affairs is a perfect complement to our mission — to draw on front-page news and under-reported stories from around the world to help Americans better understand how these issues impact our lives.” As series host, the former anchor of CNN’s “NewsNight with Aaron Brown” and ABC’s “World News Tonight Saturday” introduces the films, interviews experts about the issues raised and participates in interactive Web chats following the broadcast. These chats are one of a wide array of online features including additional video features, interviews with filmmakers and resources for further investigation into the series’ topics. WIDE ANGLE episodes for 2008 include “Heart of Darfur,” a nuanced report on the international crisis in Sudan that has resulted in more than 200,000 deaths and displaced some 2.5 million others. With the Darfur Peace Agreement in shambles,WIDE ANGLE provides an eyewitness account from the heart of the conflict — capturing the desperation of daily life in a refugee camp and rebel-held villages — and follows Host Aaron Brown the commander of the U.N.-African Union peacekeeping force for Darfur on a mission into hostile areas to coax rebel leaders and Arab tribes to the negotiating table. Other episodes include an unprecedented view of the shifting role of Japan’s military in post-war society; Venezuela’s attempt to convert its oil boom into “21st-century socialism;” and a report on the high-pressure world of Chinese students as they prepare to become 21st century leaders. Brown remarked, “The challenge of making global issues accessible and relevant is never easy. WIDE ANGLE has successfully accomplished that goal for years. I am delighted to become a part of a team and a program with such a rich history of doing good and important work.”

“My experience was great, the information I received at my consultation was very thorough and informative. Everyone that I worked with was very good and I experienced no pain what so ever. I was most pleased with Dr. Gorman’s attention to detail, when the color wasn’t perfect he took his time to ensure that it was correct and I would be 100% satisfied. ” - Bea
