TRT World’s brand-new show Nexus, a fast-paced and sometimes irreverent take on the news
TRT World’s new show, Nexus, is a fast-paced programme that you won’t find elsewhere. Using a unique ten-screen studio, Matthew Moore, the presenter breaks down the news by analysing the data, the facts, the videos and the digital noise. So you will not only have the big picture but also the finer details that aren’t always seen on the news.
In its first episode, Nexus broke down the Trump phenomena with the aid of a linguistics analyst, a psychologist and a constitutional expert and looked at how Trump diminished the press in favour of a more personal and impulsive media strategy that relies heavily on Twitter.
The second episode on the Brexit battle analysed the British prime minister’s distress. Nexus questioned whether Theresa May can survive or whether she will be pushed out like her predecessor Margaret Thatcher as she tries to guide the country through Brexit.
‘Absolute power corrupts absolutely’, in this third episode Nexus is breaking down notions of power, why is it so seductive and why are some leaders unable to let go. As Zimbabwe’s former President Robert Mugabe is forced to resign — Matthew Moore asks what it means for other leaders who are clinging on to power. With the help of a psychologist and a host of experts, we will try and understand why some leaders are addicted to power and why letting go can be so hard.
“We are not going to waste your time with news you can get elsewhere. In the Nexus, you’ll get the best stories analysed in a way you can’t find anywhere else. We’re hard news people with a sense of humour — expect the unexpected!” says Presenter Matthew Moore.
Nexus’ Executive Producer Sarah Head says, “Nexus uses original digital research to give a unique insight into the news. It’s informative and entertaining addition to TRT World’s programming.”
The third episode of weekly show Nexus will be aired on Thursday, November 30 at 20:30GMT.
