A year-long investigation into wildlife smuggling from Madagascar to Malaysia; exclusive interviews with Mongolian sumo wrestlers and Japan’s Yakuza; cutting edge coverage in Myanmar; these are just some of the reasons that Al Jazeera’s 101 East has been awarded Best Current Affairs Programme at the 2013 Asia Television Awards.
 
Programme Editor Sharon Roobol comments, “It’s been a great year for 101 East, with a number of awards wins – from cinematography to human rights awards - and now this prestigious Asia Television win for Best Current Affairs. It’s proof to our commitment to tell stories of life in Asia, from those on the street to those in power.”
