Country Direct

shots of many flags

The BBC's Direct seasons are a chance to look behind the headlines at everyday life in one country.

Each Direct allows the BBC's experts and locally based journalists to explore the issues which reveal the heart of a particular country.

They examine topics which matter to anyone trying to understand that country and its people: the economic opportunities and challenges; living life at every level of society; its traditions; its politics and innovations.

The Direct seasons complement the BBC's Country Profiles by covering more personal stories through programmes such as Working Lives and FastTrack.
