About Crossing Continents
The Crossing Continents team
Some members of the award-winning team
Crossing Continents is BBC Radio 4's award-winning foreign affairs documentary series.

We go behind the headlines to cover stories and issues that are being talked about in homes and on street corners from Barcelona to Bolivia.

We provide original and reliable journalism; engaging story-telling; a focus on the human dimension of the big international stories, and sound production that takes the listener on location.

One of the BBC's most reliable current affairs programmes
The Guardian
These are the cornerstones of Crossing Continents.

And the papers agree:

"One of the strengths of Crossing Continents is that it avoids issues in the abstract sense and instead tackles them in human terms, making them relevant wherever you happen to live," said the Times.

And the Guardian said: "One of the BBC's most reliable current affairs programmes."

The programme has been the recipient of the Amnesty International, One World and New York Festival Awards.

Crossing Continents is broadcast 28 times a year on Thursdays at 1100 GMT / BST, and is repeated on Mondays at 2030 GMT / BST
