CNN International looking back - and forward - with special, CNN 30: Events that Changed the World, with Christiane Amanpour on 30 October.
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of CNN International (DStv 401) CNN on Friday 30 October will broadcast CNN 30: Events that Changed the World, a special programme presented by CNN's chief international correspondent, Christiane Amanpour.
CNN 30: Events that Changed the World on Friday 30 October at 20:00 (South African time) will highlight moments in world history from the past 30 years, and look at the future and what the next 30 years might hold.
CNN 30: Events that Changed the World is filmed at McLaren's Thought Leadership Centre, using what CNN calls "a state-of-the-art 360 degree timeline".
The special programme will draw on CNN's video archive to immerse viewers in the events which shaped the globe the past three decades.
Thought leaders and guest on CNN 30: Events that Changed the World will include Baroness Susan Greenfield, Bernard Kouchner and Dame Zaha Hadid.
CNN 30: Events that Changed the World is filmed in front of a studio audience of people aged 30 and under. It means they didn't see or experience some of the historic events since they were not alive at the time, or were very young while their future was being shaped by the singular, yet interconnected events that will be highlighted.
CNN 30: Events that Changed the World will repeat on CNN International on Saturday 31 October at 04:00 and 11:00.
