Assignment tells the world's stories from the point of view of those most affected - the victims, the witnesses, even the perpetrators.
Its compelling journalism takes the listener to the heart of a story, visiting locations and countries sometimes barely touched by the global news headlines.
The sights and sounds of locations are brought vividly to life. Contributors are given the time and place to give voice to their passions and opinions.
Questions are raised and answered: not only what is happening, but why?
In the words of one listener: "One gets the feeling of walking right behind the reporter, observing and analysing the situation on the ground. There is the feeling of standing right beside the reporter on elevated ground, looking across some wide and unlimited valley".
