The Suffering of Sudan

Channel One Network

Channel One News reporter, writer, videographer and producer Seth Doane traveled to Sudan to help explain the complexities of Sudan’s civil war and genocide for middle school and high school audiences. His reports are detailed, disturbing and powerfully informative. Seth introduced his student viewers to their counterparts in Sudan and Chad, allowing viewers to learn about the racial component of the conflict, the scarcity of natural resources, the terror, and the harsh realities of war on children. The Suffering of Sudan was executive produced by Jim Morris and directed by Kim Crawford. Seth’s journey was also well documented via Channel One’s website designed by Beth Mayall, Andy Cheatwood, James Gladden and Cindy Lin, with over 200,000 page views during its first two weeks online. Students were able to log on for additional information and learn how they could help raise awareness of the conflict. For shedding light on one of the darkest moments in African history, and helping to create a more informed generation of young people, a Peabody Award goes to The Suffering of Sudan.
