Truth and War: candid entries from North America

North America… Canadian and American selections this year provide glimpses into the range of real-life issues facing the diversity of its people. Programmes use courageous and unusual television formats (the sitcom, personal memoir, figurative graphics and journalistic documentary) to explore issues of stereotyping, prejudice, cultural clashes, immigrant communities, justice and the human side to war. Debates are bound to be sparked around the role of public broadcasters as standard bearers of principled journalism and conveyers of different “truths”.
