i-Witness (1998)

FOUR DISTINCT VOICES make up GMA’s landmark documentary program I-Witness Jay Taruc, Kara David, Sandra Aguinaldo and Howie Severino... their names stand out among the Philippine journalists of today.

Each brings a distinct voice and trademark focus to his documentaries. For Kara David, what touches viewers most is her emotional connection with her subjects, for Jay Taruc it is the willingness to immerse in order to truly understand a situation, for Sandra Aguinaldo it is the danger she braves to get her story, for Howie Severino it is how he finds inspiration and insight in deceptively simple topics.

Together, they make up the Dream Team of the country's pioneering documentary program I-Witness … a show which, on the eve of its 7th anniversary, is still clearly on the cutting edge of local TV.

The past year alone, I-Witness won the Asian TV Award for Best Social Awareness Documentary, as well as making it to the finals of the Japan Prize, the Inigo Award, and the New York Festivals for Television and Film. Locally in 2005, I-Witness bagged the Catholic Mass Media Award for Best News Magazine, the Star Award for Best Documentary Program and an Anak TV Award for its child friendly content. Just last December, I-Witness released its Best Of Volumes 1 and 2 on DVD and these have already sold out in Powerbooks branches.
