An award-winning daily show, “PRI's The World” brings one-of-a-kind international stories home to America. "The World's" coverage is provided by a global network of international journalists, including access to 250 BBC correspondents.
We remember Shimon Peres, one of Israel's founding fathers. He served as both prime minister and president during his life in public service and was one of the key figures behind the Oslo Accords. Also, Pepe the Frog. He's a cartoon character that's more than a decade old. But he's recently been co-opted by the alt-right and made into a figure that the Anti-Defamation League has just deemed a "hate symbol." Plus, the Indian Bhangra dancers who are getting folks in Canada's Maritime provinces moving.
Today we get some outside perspectives on last night's presidential debate. We'll touch base with viewers in Nigeria, Mexico, the UK and Thailand, and we'll touch on themes ranging from race relations to immigration to America's crummy airports. Plus, a Colombian American journalist offers his views on the historic peace agreement between FARC rebels and the Colombian government. Plus, we hear why Chablis growers in France are taking aim with anti-hail cannons, today on The World.
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton go head to head tonight in their first televised debate as presidential nominees. We look at some of the hot topics they'll discuss, including national security, Syria, and immigration. Plus, there is heartbreak in Miami, where the city is mourning the tragic death of Florida Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez. The 24-year-old, originally from Cuba, was beloved not only as a great player, but a great person as well. And, we'll teach you how to respond if someone calls you a "ninnyhammer."
Some Egyptians don't necessarily like Donald Trump, but they find his style much more familiar than that of Hillary Clinton. Also, you won't see photos of Clinton in some Israeli newspapers, and we find out why. Plus, we hear about the race to save precious artworks after the earthquake in Amatrice, Italy.
Climate change gets personal. Two brothers, one in New Orleans and the other in Honduras, struggle with the impact of climate change on their homes. We also take a look at a move in France to outlaw plastic plates, cups, forks and spoons. Plus, we hear about a chance meeting in Toronto, between a journalist and the war victims she interviewed in Syria.
A huge fire in a refugee camp on Lesbos forces 5,000 people to flee. Today we learn more. And, we also hear about refugees living in the Netherlands and how they are overcoming their image as victims. Plus, we take a look at how the votes of North Carolina's 700,000 military veterans could be key this November.
