Hosted by internationally renowned journalist Riz Khan, the show gives you a voice in setting the news agenda on key issues and trends affecting lives around the globe.
Riz Khan will seek out the widest range of opinion, from leaders in the developing world to the global economic power houses and get them to tackle the issues that are being debated on the streets and in the corridors of power.
 
The show is live from Monday to Thursday at 18:00 GMT.
Coming up this week on Riz Khan:

This Monday, Riz hosts one of America's pre-eminent historians, Howard Zinn, who is most famous for his 1980 book, A People’s History of the United States, which turns traditional textbook history on its head. The book has been updated and re-published several times.

Zinn flew bombing missions for the United States in World War II, an experience he now points to in shaping his opposition to the Vietnam war and the current Iraq war.

On his latest work, A Power Governments Cannot Suppress, Zinn says: "I draw upon historical experience to suggest that the apparent power of governments and corporations is in fact fragile, that it rests on the obedience of the citizenry, and when that obedience is withdrawn, extraordinary change can take place." 

Later in the show, Riz talks to Jordan's glamorous Queen Rania about her championship of women's and children's rights.

Don’t miss Riz Khan every day at 06:00gmt, 11:00gmt,
18:00gmt (live) and 24:00gmt.
