‘UN in Action’

November 2, 2009

The UN’s use of video and television is far broader than the UNIFEED platform that I described in my earlier post.

 It also produces ‘UN in Action’, an award winning television series, that “reports on the work of the UN and its Agencies around the world.”

 Each of the pieces in the series are approximately 3- to 5-minutes in length and illustrate “UN peacekeeping efforts as well as projects aimed at reducing poverty and human suffering, fighting disease, providing humanitarian assistance and stimulating economic growth.”

 There are 57 ‘UN in Action’ pieces produced a year and, like UNIFEED, the material is available free of rights to broadcasters.
