Eye on the Middle East

(CNN) -- November sees CNN International turning its "Eye on the Middle East" with a wide-ranging and engaging week of special programming focusing on the people of this critical region, the prospects they embrace, and the problems they face.

In a week that will include live anchored news shows, dedicated programming and special features, CNN's correspondents report from Qatar, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Lebanon, Syria, Israel, Jordan and Morocco, on the catalysts for change.

This is part of CNN's special programming commissioned to celebrate its 25th anniversary.

Highlights of "Eye on the Middle East" include an hour-long special daily report anchored live from Beirut by CNN International anchor, Jim Clancy and from Amman by his co-anchor Hala Gorani.

The program will feature reports from CNN correspondents throughout the region, covering the people, the changing the face of politics, business, religion and culture across the entire Middle East.

Coverage will include interviews with key Middle Eastern players, opinion leaders and newsmakers, talking about what they think the future holds for their generation and the region.

This unprecedented week of CNN coverage will also feature a special edition of "CNN Connects" hosted by Jim Clancy in Beirut, under the theme of "Voices of a New Generation."

Lebanon embodies the rapid political and economic change taking place across the region and this discussion panel will bring together youth leaders from the entire Arab World to debate, discuss, confront, and challenge the status quo.

The one-hour discussion in front of a live studio audience will focus on how society is changing and what the Arab world's next generation can do to shape the region in the decades to come.

During the course of this week of special programming, viewers can also look out for special editions of "Inside the Middle East," "World Report" with special contributions from journalists from CNN affiliate Middle Eastern broadcasters, and a "CNN Presents" one-hour documentary focusing on the many faces of change in the region's largest nation -- Egypt.

CNN is dispatching its top correspondents across the region for this special week of programming, delivering reports from every corner and covering every aspect of life as they examine the metamorphosis of the Middle East.

In addition to Jim Clancy and Hala Gorani, a whole team of CNN correspondents, including Richard Quest, Beirut-based Brent Sadler and Cairo-based Ben Wedeman, will be delivering their own insights into this key region.

This special week of coverage, beginning November 21, comes at a time of international focus on the region and a time of debate on all sides about the quality and nature of the dialogue between the Arab world and the West.

CNN is available in more than 13 million television households across the Middle East.
