News Team. Episode 104
Maria Finoshina reaches Aleppo, Syria's largest city and one of the worst affected by the country's crisis. It is now faced with a new threat: the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa is only 200km away. Meanwhile, Murad Gazdiev is in Donetsk, Ukraine. Replacing Roman Kosarev, he braves the city's dark, misty streets, as he counts down the minutes to an agreed ceasefire.
Some of the biggest news stories around the world. In News Team, an award-winning documentary crew traverses the globe, keeping up with the channel’s leading reporters as they cover the stand-off in Ukraine, the war in Syria, and the machinations in the EU’s corridors of power.
News Team is not just a privileged view into how the news is made, but also provides unflinching insight into the personal lives of those who make it. After watching News Team, no RT broadcast will ever seem the same.
The series was independently filmed by Emmy-nominated Josh Silberman.
