The Visa pour l’Image evening shows will cover the main events of the past year, from September 2016 to August 2017.
Every evening, from Monday to Saturday, the program will begin with a chronological review of these news stories, two months at a time. This is followed by reports and features on society, wars, stories that have made the news and others that have been kept quiet, plus coverage of the state of the world today.
