Special Story deals with issues of national and international importance. The topics are selected for their relevance to current events, that can be political or on issues that are closely connected to our immediate world. This programme is based on current events and explores a new issue each week. There are people's reaction to the event or incident. The approach is to stimulate concern, empathy and initiate debate. The treatment is analytical and follows a well laid out format of examining different strands of an issue.
