We believe free access to information is a human right.

1 billion people are unable to read and write and more than half of the world's population lack access to the internet. This means that for millions of people across the world free, reliable, information is simply not available.

To combat unequal access to information THE WHY produces & donates documentaries to underserved countries and distributes them on a sliding fee scale to other broadcasters around the world.

Founded in 2004 by documentary visionaries Mette Hoffmann Meyer (former head of documentaries at DR) and Nick Fraser (founder of BBC's documentary strand Storyville), THE WHY encapsulate their vision of making investigative documentaries available to everyone, everywhere.

Engaging our extensive network of broadcasters, filmmakers and journalists, THE WHY now reaches more than 200 countries and territories with over 70 television broadcasters, local non-profit organizations and schools. By securing access to informative documentary films for everyone, we encourage global critical debate on pressing human rights and environmental issues.

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.

Static and dynamic content editing

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.
