And the channel also announced that award-winning broadcaster, author and producer, Sir David Frost, will present its flagship current affairs show, “Frost over the World”.

Frost over the World will be the flagship current affairs programme on Al Jazeera broadcasting for one hour, at 6pm GMT every Friday from London, starting 17 November. Each programme will cover the world’s top stories. There will be interviews with international leaders and newsmakers, the latest from the stars of arts and entertainment and a four-way global debate with contributors from all over the world.
