EDGES with Mal Fletcher

EDGES™ with Mal Fletcher is a colourful, fast-paced programme that takes a very different look at the social issues shaping the values of today's world and the lifestyles of tomorrow.

Using its magazine style format, each half-hour programme explains Christian worldview responses on some of the most pressing problems of our time. Issues covered in the most recent programs include Human Trafficking, HIV/AIDS, Global Poverty and more.

The content of each programme is substantial, featuring interviews, on the street vox pops, videograpy and Mal Fetcher's presentations to camera. The programme's content and style is primarily aimed at a Gen-X young adult audience aged 25-40 years, but the program attracts many other viewers who are interested in the topics covered.

Seven series of EDGES have been produced to date, with between ten and thirteen programmes in most series. The seventh series was released in 2009. Since its beginnings in 1996, EDGES has been broadcast via satellite, cable and terrestrial TV, and has been available in more than 100 nations. Programmes are also accessible online via the dedicated EDGES website at www.edges.tv and other broadcaster-linked web VOD portals.

"TimeOut is excellent, often inspiring, always thought provoking. The fact that Mal can say something pithy and worthwhile in 30 seconds is remarkable... a tribute to clear thinking and good script writing." Andrew Dallaston, Shine TV

Hey, thanks for the great articles, it is a blessing to read you

Re the Bridgend suicides: This is a horrible tragedy for this town. The promise and excitement these young people have missed of college, getting married, children, having a career, being a grandparent, traveling the world... Where is the parental involvement in all this?

Mal, did you start out as a journalist? You are one of the most naturally gifted writers whose works I have had the pleasure of reading. I just love your succinct way of delivering words that paint a captivating picture.
