The investigative news program titled This World is one of the BBC's many programs dedicated to providing in-depth coverage on a number of pressing issues around the world. Their recent project, One Day of War, follows individual fighters in 16 of the wars currently going on around the world over the same 24-hour period. The centerpiece of the site is the section that offers profiles of these 16 people, along with a complete transcript of the original program that aired at the end of May 2004. Some of the people profiled here include Shushila Magar, who is fighting with the Nepali Maoist Militia, and Nati Mazuz, who is a professional solider serving in the Gaza Strip. Also available is a commentary from the series producer on how the project came to be, and a clickable map where individuals can learn more about each region featured in the personal stories of each participant.
