This Week on MNN: World Television Day

In 1996 the United Nations set aside November 21 to recognize the increasing impact television has on informing, decision making, and affecting public opinion. This week we'll highlight a smattering of MNN community produced content that is truly one of a kind.  

Conversation with Harold Hudson Channer is a program that has been on public access channels since 1973. Harold passed away in December 2020 and recorded over 4000 conversations with guests that include forgien leaders, famous authors, and economic experts. The episode we share with you is one of Harold’s most well known and intriguing conversations. In 1991 Harold traveled to Libya to speak with Colonel Muammar Al Gaddafi to discuss his philosophy of government, his way of organizing his country and his view of the world. Watch this controversial conversation only on MNN. 

Youth Spotlight is a series of programs that were produced by powerful young storytellers and active community leaders. These programs attempt to offer an alternative to the stories found in mainstream media and to galvanize viewers to participate in local efforts towards change. In this episode these young producers take us on a march through East Harlem for the annual Literacy Harlem March and Book Drive and talk with filmmakers at the Dominican Film Festival held in NYC. Join us This Week on MNN. 

Everyday Spirituality is a program dedicated to a deeper understanding of your everyday life from a spiritual perspective. On this episode host Zem Audu along with guests Fleur Barron and Chad DeLuca discuss finding inner guidance through dreams. 

Come Clean is an interview show like no other. Charles Eschelman is a NYC photographer who carries his camera and a clawfoot bathtub throughout New York City. Charles talks to comedians, actors, dancers, skate boarders, students, community activists, retirees and just about anyone who is willing to climb into the tub and Come Clean about their escapades. This show is an extremely unique experience you won’t find anywhere else.
