[The Chosun Ilbo, March 3 2008] BBC to Air Chosun Ilbo’s N.Korea Documentary

The Chosun Ilbo will introduce a global cross-media program in cooperation with the world's leading broadcasters. The newspaper has agreed with BBC, BBC World and TBS of Japan to air a documentary series about North Korean refugees entitled "On The Border" throughout the world.

The newspaper is negotating with more broadcasters in the U.S. and Europe. "On The Border" is a four-part high-definition documentary series based on materials Chosun Ilbo journalists gathered on the human rights situation of the North Korean refugees. The Chosun Ilbo organized a special team in May last year and reporters spent 10 months, sometimes at considerable risk, gathering the material.
