12 November 2006 – Al Jazeera English, the 24-hour English-language news and current affairs channel, headquartered in Doha, announced today its programme Inside Story, a daily half-hour discussion programme that will go beyond the headlines and the standard approach to stories, putting them under the microscope to anlayse and investigate them in a fresh light

In a world where news comes at us fast, it is sometimes difficult to give a story the time and reporting that it deserves. Inside Story will change that, with expert guests and insightful analysis, longer interviews and more in depth reporting, providing background and context to the story. A co-production with Al Jazeera English language channel’s sister channel, Al Jazeera, and drawing on the spirit of their highly successful news programme Ma Wara al Khabar (Behind the News), Inside Story will go beyond the day’s reports and provide more in depth analysis and commentary on the news stories that matter most.

Inside Story will air live five days a week from the channel’s headquarters in Doha at 16.30 GMT, hosted by Al Jazeera English’s extensive team of talented and experienced news presenters.
