Writer, historian, broadcaster and activist Tariq Ali is one of the world’s sharpest and most outspoken political analysts.
The World Today with Tariq Ali is a weekly interview, culture and political review show produced for the English-language website of Venezuelan broadcaster teleSUR.
The one-hour show is split into four unique segments: Global Empire, Media Review, Rear Window and Llama time. Each segment approaches its subject from a different perspective and philosophy, away from the traditional viewpoint of mainstream media.
• Global Empire: Insightful half-hour lectures on a range of global political and social issues. This slot also sees Tariq in discussion with leading thinkers from the world of politics and culture.
• Media Review: Presented by guest journalists, this segment critiques the media outlets that aren’t covering the news as they should be, and compliments those who are.
• Rear Window: These short films are about arts and culture and take their inspiration from world issues and politics. Their subject matter ranges greatly from dissident artists to musicians in exile.
• Llama Time: These are musings and insights from one of the sharpest and most outspoken animated political analysts and social observers in the animal kingdom, Larry the Llama.
