German TV is airing the documentary on Tuesday. Don't know about other countries, though.

Jamie Drummond has written a piece for the Huffington Post about the work ONE has done in Africa:

Thanks for the link, Silvia! Poverty's the main news theme this week on the Finnish national TV channel, YLE 1 called "Poverty, why?" and they'll be airing this documentary this coming saturday. Nice to have a sneak preview though!

it must be really difficult having to deal with that kind of thing, but sounds like she's got it sussed and has a good bullshit radar haha

Blood Ties, is that based on the Jennifer Lash (Fiennes) book i wonder?? sounds a great cast any way! excellent!

I first read that title as, "Fakers beware - I know the real thing, Bono's a girl."

I need new contacts. Or maybe just coffee.

^ It's not available

I watched it on German TV station arte yesterday, along with two other documentaries as part of the "Why Poverty?" project. VERY interesting indeed and also quite balanced. For the Bono fan, it was great as well because the programme features new interviews and also footage I haven't seen before. It can be watched (in German) here:

http://videos.arte.tv/de/videos/why-...--7075526.html

I wish there was a downloadable version on You Tube or somewhere else. It's quite an interesting documentary, but also quite shocking. So many facts that make your head spin.

Yeah, same here, can't see it! Oh well, I'm just going to have to wait until Saturday to watch!! Hoping someone will eventually upload this video onto YouTube though.

I was totally suprised to see it on our national TV last night, too, after I came home from my evening class. It's also on You Tube now, however, only the German version:

I watched this yesterday. It's pretty interesting and basically tells a summary of how Bono and Bob Geldof got involved with Africa.

Oh,yes! I also saw this last Monday on TV! When my mother told me that there was a documentary with Bono and Bob Geldof I freaked out and kept asking thousands of questions about this.She told me that I should be patient until Monday and that's what I did.It was so interesting!!!
