On the channel
WORLDbytes latest line-up includes our new 'Wide Angle' series, with experts discussing terrorism and how comedic treatments come closer to the truth. In our first 'TV Dinners' show volunteers tuck in and consider whether 'fat' should be a government concern. Does the hype on illegal immigrants irritate you? WORLDbytes provides the solution in a 30 second short. From Austerity to Epigenetics, debates at the Battle of Ideas always provide new knowledge. A further six have been polished up by our volunteer-learners.
