CNN International: August 2018 Programming Highlights

Coming up on CNN International in-flight during August 2018 (Times are in GMT and CET and subject to change)

CNNi Quest's World of WonderQuest’s World of Wonder – Berlin

Berlin is the king of diversity: a city of contrasts where subcultures thrive. Where the night-time economy dominates the daytime. Where the shadow of the past mingles with a young and creative population. Where the gritty walls of street art galleries look down on the glamorous performances of burlesque dancers. Where east and west are now united, and yet still stand apart. “Poor but sexy” is the phrase which became synonymous with this city, voted the best place for Millennials, who champion its low rents, and nod along to its techno soundtrack. Join Richard Quest as he makes his way through the German capital, learning from young and old about what makes this city such a special destination.

CNNi Expedition AntarcticaExpedition Antarctica

Though it might feel as though the Antarctic is about as far from anything, or anyone, as you can get, there are increasing signs of human interference. But the very future of our planet could depend on protecting it. Together with CNN photographer Brice Laine, correspondent Arwa Damon embarks on an epic month-long journey to the ends of the earth. Along with scientists, marine biologists, and Greenpeace activists, she witnesses first-hand the stunning beauty and fragile landscape that hangs in the balance. The icy waters of the Antarctic and what lives in them are proving to be a vital buffer to climate change. They are also becoming a battle ground about where to draw the line between profit and protection. The future of our planet could very well depend on what’s happening here — and what happens next.
