Haiti in a Time of Cholera follows journalist Sebastian Walker as he travels to Haiti to witness the death and the pain caused by the outbreak of cholera, as well as the fight for compensation for the victims of the deadly epidemic. We have not seen the documentary yet, but Al Jazeera did extensive interviews with the lawyers at BAI and IJDH, and with BAI’s cholera case clients in Haiti. Walker then travels to the United Nations headquarters in New York to ask questions of those responsible for bringing the disease to Haiti, where it has infected over 600,000 and killed nearly 8,000. The episode will be the first to air on Al Jazeera’s new network, Al Jazeera America.
For a sneak preview tonight, tune in to Al Jazeera America’s flagship news program America Tonight; Walker will be appearing during that program’s 9-10 pm ET time slot with two clips from the new episode.
If you won’t be home tomorrow, you can also catch the repeats on Thursday, August 24, 2013 at 1:30 pm and Saturday, August 26 at 10 pm ET.
