"My Afghanistan", one of the documentaries to be aired by 1TV

15 documentaries of the WHY STORIES series are now to be broadcast in Afghanistan. The contract was sealed between THE WHY and the channel 1TV.

The deal is a great achievement considering the common censorship of human rights topics that the Central South-Asian country encounters. On the ranking of the 2020 World Press Freedom Index, Afghanistan is at the position 122 out of 180 countries.

In conversations with the THE WHY since January, the 1TV channel was introduced to our team through Nagieb Khaja, Afghan-Danish filmmaker that is part of our Advisory Board. Before that, THE WHY’s documentaries were aired in the country in 2015.


1TV is known for its strong, independent news and current affairs programming, with internationally acclaimed content such as “The Mask”, “Kabul Debate Live” and nightly hard-hitting current affairs series.

According to the independent market research study conducted by Altai Consulting in July 2012, 1TV is considered the 'Fastest Growing Television Channel in Afghanistan', as it quickly gained audience acceptance in the country.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
