Showdown between 'Kaya.' and 'I-Witness': Which program will you watch?

By Media Newser Philippines | Saturday, February 08, 2014

There's a big showdown this weekend and it features two documentaries headlined by a number of industry heavyweights.

Tonight, TV5 will debut its newest documentary program Kaya.. Originally titled i-Dokyu, the new program features News5 chief Luchi Cruz-Valdes, Twink Macaraig, DJ. Sta Ana, Patrick Paez and InterAksyon's Roby Alampay.

Valdes, who's headlining the program's premiere broadcast tonight at 10:30, described it as a "gamechanger." “We mean to differentiate, truly, visibly, perceptibly. We believe that it is knowledge that can make people come to an informed decision that will ultimately bring us out of our sorry plight. Tama na yung paiyak, paawa, there’s a place for that,” she said in an interview with The Philippine Star back in January.

Over at GMA-7, there's the long-running I-Witness airing at 10:15PM. For its first Saturday night airing, Kara David will document the plight of people affected by the infestation of rats in a town in Isabela and in Vitas, Tondo.

As part of its continuing effort in strengthening the program's social media presence, there will be a Q&A during tonight's airing with Kara David, Howie Severino, Sandra Aguinaldo and Jay Taruc answering viewers' questions on Twitter.
