CNN Philippines Presents: War on Drugs
President Rodrigo Duterte vowed to give the country law and order and it is a promise he holds on to with an iron fist. There are talks in Congress to revive the death penalty. There are bounties on the heads of drug lords and their dealers.

CNN Philippines looks at the scourge of drugs in the country, and the intense war the government intends to wage against it. But as the bodies pile up, it must also be asked — in the war on drugs, who will be caught in the crossfire?

CNN Philippines Presents: Peskador
On July 12, the Arbitral Tribunal ruled in favor of the Philippines in a landmark case dismissing China’s claims in the South China Sea dispute. Correspondent JC Gotinga talked to those who have been most affected since China took control of Scarborough Shoal in 2012 to understand the impact of the dispute on the local fishermen in Zambales. Beyond the politics of Scarborough Shoal, “Peskador” is a story of survival, of family, and of the future of these communities.

On The Record
Amelyn Veloso talks to prominent journalists on President Duterte’s love-hate relationship with the media. How much has changed since the President took office? And how will the media play a role in the changing landscape that President Duterte has promised?

The Boardroom Special Edition SONA 2016
Anthony Pangilinan brings together one of the country's top business leaders in the special edition of the The Boardroom to look at the leadership and economic agenda of President Duterte. Guest panelists include Noel Leyco, Professor at AIM, Berns Uy, Head of Finance and Community Development at Habi Footwear, Cezar “Bong” Consing, CEO and President of the Bank of The Philippine Islands, and Manny Ayala, Managing Director of Endeavor Philippines.

Profiles Special Edition: Who, What, & Wear
Unlike in past years, the dress code in Monday’s State of the Union address is going to be simple “business attire.” But Filipinos are still expected to have their eyes on the red carpet. Hosted by Mitzi Borromeo, "Who, What, & Wear" captures the spirit of an event such as the SONA, from past outfits, highlights of the previous years, to some of the fashion forward designers furthering our national textiles for such a momentous occasion.
