On the Line

Smart talk about issues and ideas that matter.

On the Line is a lively forum, hosted by Doug Bernard, where newsmakers, policy experts, diplomats, activists, academics and journalists discuss world events. It focuses on the critical issues shaping the future, and gives those issues the vigorous, serious debate they deserve. The program broadcasts worldwide on VOA Television, and is also heard on VOA radio. Condensed versions of the program can be heard in translation in over 40 languages via VOA radio's language services.

 

This Week's Program:

HOW SAFE ARE OUR SKIES?
A jet disappears over the Indian Ocean. Another is downed, possibly by a missile. And a third crashes over Mali.  And that's not even the full list.  What's happening with air travel and how safe are we in the skies?  That's our topic this week, On The Line.
