BBC Documentary about Afghan Bloggers
As you would expect, the BBC podcasts a wide range of documentaries and other content (see the list of podcasts on their website or search for “documentaries” on iTunes or another podcast aggregator). A recent documentary about bloggers in Afghanistan can also be played and downloaded from here. When the mainstream media cover of Afghanistan, it is usually to report on the ongoing war, and they usually tell the story from a Western perspective. However, Afghan bloggers are also telling their own stories. The Human Rights in Afghanistan blog provides a personal view of the conflict, the Pakhtunkhwa Times is dedicated to critical reflections on politics, society and the arts, and the Afghan Photos and Through Afghan Eyes blogs displays images of everyday life. The Afghanistan Analyst maintains a comprehensive list of blogs by Afghans and others living in the country and abroad. The Association of Afghan Blog Writers (AABW) promotes blogging and citizen journalism in Afghanistan and provides links to active bloggers, as well as information, news, and interviews.
