Personal ‘Stories’

It’s true that everyone has a story – actually, far more than one.

The film series “Stories from the Stage” on the World channel celebrates this fact and features masterful storytellers. On June 22 beginning at 8 p.m., a 24-hour marathon is composed of 48 half-hour episodes running back to back, with 140 individual stories.

Three multicultural presenters from around the world interpret each themed episode. They tell of their experiences about topics such as “Lost and Found,” “Fresh Start,” “New Beginnings,” “Eureka!” and others. The episodes include interviews by the hosts, Wes Hazard and Theresa Okokon, and even comments and stories from the audience.

“Stories from the Stage” runs regularly on the World channel, with experiences that are funny, real, heartfelt and inspiring.

The World channel airs news and documentaries from PBS, focusing on original content and examining issues less often explored on mainstream media. They’re personal stories behind the headlines and devoted to complex issues.

It’s covered by 159 PBS partner stations.
