CNN to broadcast special programme - CNN 30: Three Decades that Changed Our World

CNN has been broadcasting globally for 30 years. In that period, momentous change has taken place – geopolitically, technologically, medically, and socially.

In a special programme hosted by CNN’s Chief International Correspondent Christiane Amanpour, CNN 30 – Three Decades that Changed Our World, CNN highlights moments in world history from the past three decades, and looks ahead to what the next 30 years might hold.

The programme will air on Friday 30 October at 21:00 CAT on CNN.

Filmed at McLaren’s Thought Leadership Centre, using a state of the art 360 degree timeline, CNN 30 – Three Decades that Changed Our World draws on CNN video archive to immerse the studio audience in the events which have shaped their lives.

Presented as a ground-breaking visualisation, the timeline will lead the audience through the discussion.

Joining Amanpour is a panel of thought leaders who will contribute their understanding of the global developments and imagine what comes next, including:

  • Ekow Eshun
  • Baroness Susan Greenfield
  • Bernard Kouchner
  • Elif Şafak

CNN 30 – Three Decades that Changed Our World is filmed in front of a studio audience of people aged 30 and under, whose lives have been entirely shaped by the events under discussion – and whose futures are determined by the issues at hand.

The programme will also air at the following times:

Saturday 31 October at 05:00 CAT and 12:00 CAT.

Sunday 1 November at 03:00 CAT.
