1:36 pm
a path that was already semi paid to jewelry. its sister channel of da. xerox was already a pole for region of bron honest with an international outreach. the mission of abdulla englishness was to build on about momentum, which it did into yes, the new channel whose initial aim was 20000000 subscribers was able to reach 80000000. it's exclusive coverage of the israeli war on gathering 2008 made the stand out among giant world competitors with regional hubs in though how london washington d. c. and quite a lumper, a vast network of correspondence and social media platforms. it was able to provide the most comprehensive news coverage from the middle east, africa, asia, europe, and the americas in the focus was on human stories. this meant take risks, reaching remote areas and challenging government censorship. i was just there, a champion, the coverage of what became known as the arab spring. we were really
1:37 pm
a platform for those who were the you for it crowds, if you like. whereas across the world, people who are demanding freedom people who are defending democracy before their struggle defended is our conflicts. we faced many, many challenges over the years by while while covering conflicts and some of the most trouble region. while covering protest in egypt for our english journalists were jailed on false charges for nearly 2 years. the thing is we were doing our job as a professional journalist in egypt. and at some point this did not make the government in egypt happy. you didn't want anybody to report anything. what, what do they see as a truth? so it was a shock. people came restless, just simply for 2 reasons. one, they don't want the truth to prevail for people. the 2nd thing they want to intimidate other for enjoy or to join with in general in cairo. undaunted, the channel went ahead,
1:38 pm
gaining more popularity and winning awards. it managed to reverse the direction of the news flow, given a stronger voice to the global south. yeah. in 15 years of english, how solidified it's a global footprint and continues its commitment to viewers by bringing to light stories that are otherwise less covered, hammered via our busier and joining us now here in the studio is the managing director of al jazeera english channel. giles, trend hill, thanks for being he, giles. first of all, i mean just looking at that package and the last 15 years has been particularly busy. why is it so important? do you think, why was it so important to establish allergies very english for this region? i think we are a channel that is not based in a traditional power center, so we're not from london. we're not from washington model, from parents, not from berlin or we are. we are in a, in a, in a region of the world which isn't used to having international news channels based
1:39 pm
. and so by having, by being based here, and along with our editorial perspective, which is to provide all perspectives and alternative perfect. so that makes it really important that i think algebra english has such a wide range and scope and depth in its coverage. unlike many other or most other news organizations in spain, 15 years is there a particular story or stories that stand out for you that represent the motto, voice of the voiceless. really with been doing voice, the voiceless for every day, every hour, every day for the past 15 years. so it's very difficult to pinpoint one particular story. but what i would say is that more recently the coverage we've done on the climate change and, and caught some of the packages from the field. and earlier this year as well, about climate showing the effects of this climate emergency that we're going
1:40 pm
through on everyday people. and often it's the most poor and marginalized communities that are suffering are on the front line of the climate change. some of those stores that we've done among everything else, i think have been really powerful and telling the human story in days how have the same technology playing a role over the last few years or over the last 15 years. how is technology helped and benefited journalism and how do you say that progressing? i would say there's been great disruption and disruption can be good and it can be bad disruption. it's revolutionized the way we gather news. the way we produce seems like mobile journalism have increased the, the equipment is getting smaller and it's getting more portable, more flexibility, more agility in our, in our ability to go out into the field and produce then as the dark, aside of some of the big tech companies that we've seen recently, some of the more malign influences of some social media platforms,
1:41 pm
which may be purveyors of misinformation even disinformation. and of course, it's our job then to, to make sure that proper information gets out and to challenge those narratives, those false narratives. and of course, the speed of all of that happens. so it's done so quickly. i mean, you need the actual, it's the of louis hamilton. oh, you know, it's so fast these days. where do you see the next 15 years going? what would you like to see happen? i think it's really important that we continue with the technological revolution. and wherever that's going and where on the platforms the provide our audience is what they need. but at the same time, stick to the core editorial values because holding the line in a world like today, holding the line on professional journalism, on, on, frank fer coverage is really important. and i think as, as they say, who is all will said in the, in the times of the seats it's, it's
1:42 pm
a revolutionary act. tell the truth. so in that sense, we continue being revolution will, may, we will be sitting here in 15 years time together discussing that very thing. maybe, you know, it's always know, wrecking interviewing your boss. i appreciate your time and thank you very much. managing director of al jazeera english giles trends there. okay, moving on now, and you anti corruption party appears to be leading in bo gary's parliamentary elections. according to the countries essential electoral commission that we continued to change, grouping is up against center, right? potty headed by the former prime minister, believe has come as a surprise to many analysts. jenna, how joins us live now from sophia. thanks for joining us, joanna. this would be good news to bo gary ends after months of political uncertainty. well, it certainly good news, francy corruption, campaign isn't supporters. remember this election protest process rather that began back in april, came off the back of mass demonstrations last year against corruption. that spreads
1:43 pm
from the government to big business from the mafia to the judiciary. they spelt the end of 12 years in power for boris party. solve his government 12 years marked by corruption. whatever the result he caught come back to power. he has no coalition part does. now, the previous 2 elections in april and july were inconclusive because of the failure to build coalitions. this one looks very different. that is because of the inclusion in the election about brand new anti corruption party. as you were mentioning there, that has done extremely well coalition talks will need to follow, but as it's lead a curio pet cough told me on sunday. those talks may be delicate, but he is determined in his goal to change the image of bulgaria. no longer a country characterized by corruption, instead one that will have eliminated corruption altogether. is my report book areas, industrial hot plan, a mix of soviet here,
