The Key Shows
We The People: This powerful opinion-based show, hosted by Barkha Dutt, puts eminent panelists at the mercy of an enquiring public, throwing the floor open for discussions on the issues affecting the country and its people and ensuring that the average citizen has his or her say.

The Big Fight: Hosted by Vikram Chandra, the show pits those on opposite sides of an issue against each other in a lively and often heated debate. What emerges from the sometimes controversial opinions is a thorough 360° view of the key national or global issue at hand.

The Buck Stops Here: A cutting edge daily prime time show that covers a gamut of political and social debates, through hard hitting opinion and interviews with all the big newsmakers.

The show is widely seen to have redefined television standards in India. Unmatched production values with impeccable research work and inimitable presentation by the anchor make it a benchmark on Indian Television.

This is also the first show that began taking live tweets in an attempt to become the most interactive show on Indian Television. The Buck Stops Here is anchored by one of the country’s best known and regarded television journalists, Barkha Dutt, who is often the person India turns to watch in moments of national crisis.

Left Right & Centre: One hour of the day's biggest news discussed threadbare by the day's newsmakers. Diverse opinions, from across the political spectrum, drawn out and dissected. The show that makes you decide - Are you the Left, Right or the Centre?

Truth vs Hype: Anchored and presented by Sreenivasan Jain, Truth vs Hype is the only major news show that travels every week to ground zero to answer the questions that lie at the heart of every big story of our time – from politics, to corruption, to conflict zones.

Shot and edited as a cutting edge news documentary, each episode is backed by solid research, hard facts and a clear-eyed sifting through evidence.

Standout episodes of the show’s first season included the debate over whether the Army should withdraw from Jammu and Kashmir, the propaganda war that has broken out in Sri Lanka after the war with the LTTE ended, an investigation into illegal mining in Goa, the myth of Manipur’s 100 day long economic blockade, and Anna Hazare’s provocative views on using violence to combat social ills.

India 60: Verdict : NDTV’s flagship news programme, India 60 Minutes, is complemented by this special debate segment on the major controversy of the day. Designed to be interactive, it lets viewers have the final word on the big issue in that day’s news, be it from politics, sports, entertainment or business.
Bombay Talkies: Sreenivasan Jain takes a walk with Mumbai’s renowned personalities, through an area that is especially significant to him or her.

Amongst the stellar guests the show has had, were three of India’s Nobel Prize winners – Dr. Amartya Sen, VS Naipul and The Dalai Lama.

The NDTV Dialogues: Amid the political noise and fury, NDTV starts a new weekly series, THE NDTV DIALOGUES, aimed at fostering conversations which actually further our understanding on key issues and look at potential solutions.
