WORLD STORIES reaches an unprecedented number of people, and has the largest audience of any single human interest focused documentary film strand in the world.
The films are selected to represent a broad spectrum of social justice and human rights issues. Each series will therefore have films that relate to the following subcategories: culture & everyday life, civil & political rights, war & peace, inequality & development, gender & sexuality


Our editorial team selects 20 outstanding documentary films per year and edit each film to a 45 minute television version.


The films are licensed, versioned, updated and dubbed into local languages for broadcast partners around the world.
