Al Jazeera Documentary Channel believes in presenting the other side of reality, the side that transcends the false world and its issues. The topics relating to environment, pollution, etc. that are now more global and need immediate attention.

With a truly informative and educational approach driven by hope and the broader human horizon we focuse on issues that are usually marginalised and ignored.
