Link is proud to be home to two programs, both from Qatar-based channel Al Jazeera English, that have been nominated for International Emmy Awards this year! An Al Jazeera English News Hour segment on the Russia-Georgia war picked up a nomination in the News category for superb on-the-ground journalistic coverage. And Al Jazeera English's Witness documentary series, airing weekly on Link TV, was nominated in the Current Affairs category for the special Return to Nablus. Part of that special, Two Schools in Nablus, aired on Link, and is available to watch online now. International Emmy Award winners will be announced on September 21, 2009, and we'll keep you updated on the results.
If you haven't already, be sure to catch these fantastic, internationally-recognized programs on Link! The Al Jazeera English News Hour has been airing every weekday on Link since June, part of Link's Global News Hour with Mosaic: World News From the Middle East. Daily online news bulletins from AJE are also available online. Al Jazeera English - Witness airs Mondays at 8pm Pacific and Wednesdays at 7pm Eastern, and most episodes are available to watch online.
Congratulations to our partners at Al Jazeera English for their second consecutive International Emmy Award nomination in a row! We'll have our fingers crossed for an AJE awards sweep in September.
