In Focus: The Istanbul riots (Part 1)


My documentary series ‘In Focus‘ is going on strong in it’s second season. Tonight’s episode is something many should be looking forward to (or so I say!) as it is an in-depth, on the ground look at the Istanbul riots in Turkey. Being in Istanbul during this period is pretty intense and this is only part 1 of a 2-part series (9th and 16th July). So make sure you tune in.

Working together with Karim Raslan on the TV version of his column ‘Ceritalah’… on Asto AWANI!


Ceritalah Malaysia is the TV version of Karim Raslan’s long running newspaper column and book series where he travels the country speaking to ordinary Malaysians to get a sense of the true Malaysia. I used to read Karim’s writings more than ten years ago when I first started writing myself (funnily.. I haven’t read his stuff in quite a while now! muahaha!). But now we’re working together… and it’s pretty cool!

Produced by Zan Azlee and Karim Raslan for Astro AWANI (501). Every Monday nights, starting tonight, at 9:30pm (with repeats throughout the week).
