The Audiovisual Communications Unit of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDBtv) today launched the second season of Crónicas de Cambio, a television series that features development impact stories with a human angle.

The season premiere is a special program on the IDB Annual Meeting, scheduled to take place on March 15–19, in Montevideo, Uruguay. The program will feature reports on citizen security, climate change, sustainable tourism and youth employment, as well as an exclusive interview with Julio Bocca, renowned dancer and artistic director of the National Ballet of Uruguay.

The complete second season of Crónicas de Cambio, comprised of 12 magazine-style programs, will be available for broadcasting on television channels and electronic platforms beginning in June 2012. Each 30-minute program includes reports produced in different countries of the region, as well as a profile piece with a person recognized for work in social, cultural, or economic change. The reports describe experiences in key development areas such as education, health, infrastructure, energy, and private sector development.

During its first year on the air, Crónicas de Cambio signed primetime broadcasting agreements with 17 television channels, including Foro TV (Mexico), NTN 24 (Colombia), Canal N (Peru), Globovision (Venezuela) and CNN Chile. The Spanish-language series currently reaches a potential audience of 30 million households across the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean. In 2012, the second season of the series will also be produced in English for a global audience.

Along with presenters Karina Coronel and Juan Pablo Zarruk, the Crónicas de Cambio team includes veteran television journalists with extensive experience in the production of reports and documentaries with social content. The program also features local coverage provided by correspondents and contributors in 26 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.
