It has been a fascinating 12 months.

The year 2012 has seen the Syrian conflict escalate into a deadly civil war, another brutal bombardment of Gaza, the London Olympics, the re-election of Barack Obama as US president and much else besides.

Al Jazeera English has covered all these events and a whole lot more through its extraordinary range of news, documentary and discussion output.

This programme looks back and picks out some of the memorable people, stories, issues and images that appeared on our screens over the year.

More than just a highlights review, it will also showcase the very best of our journalism and filmmaking and the diversity of our programming.

Be it a news story of global importance, an investigation of matters that would otherwise have gone unreported, a fascinating studio exchange, or a moving personal story from an observational documentary, it will give our audience an opportunity to re-engage with what makes Al Jazeera stand out among international broadcasters.
