BBC World News America has secured a rare opportunity to broadcast two live programs from Cuba on Thursday 25 February and Friday 26 February at 7:00 pm ET/PT.
Anchored by Matt Frei from Havana, these two special newscasts will feature interviews with key players and in-depth pieces examining some of the major issues impacting Cuba and US-Cuban relations.
Executive Producer, Rome Hartman says: “There are very few international relationships as complex, fascinating, and important as the one between Cuba and the United States. The opportunity to do both in-depth reporting and live broadcasting from Cuba is very rare and very special, and we mean to make the absolute most of it.”
This evening, ahead of the two live broadcasts, the BBC’s full-time resident correspondent in Cuba, Michael Voss, looks back at the key events in the country’s recent history and what the future may hold under Raul Castro.
