WHY STORIES? is an annual series of 20 documentary films distributed through local broadcasting partners and BBC World News. We reach hundreds of millions of people with critically acclaimed films about human rights and democracy - supporting an informed global citizenry.

THE WHY strives to diminish the global information gap, by bringing stories from the world, to the world. We offer the films to broadcasters in underserved regions on a sliding fee scale, meaning that investigative content is made available to countries that because of lack of funding or censorship have not been able to broadcast these kinds of stories before.

Our broadcaster in Mongolia says:

“We want to let you know how much Why Stories means to Mongolia. With the films you provided us we have been able to trigger independent and unbiased discussions on topics that no-one else would have ever done it Mongolia, such as freedom of the media (Putin's Kiss), broken foreign investment promises (Big Men), LGBT rights in Mongolia (God Loves Uganda). The last one, was the first time when the public broadcaster ever hosted live on TV the Mongolian LGBT community leaders talking about their struggle in a very conservative nation.”

We are currently looking for 20 completed films for season 4, within the following categories: culture & everyday life, civil & political rights, war & peace, inequality & development, and gender & sexuality.

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.
