Away from the pandemic, TVF’s Mediacorp offerings also include Undercover Asia, which reveals new stories of crime, violence and injustice, while science programmes range from China’s Science Revolution to Death Of A Planet, which reveals international scientists new strategies to search for clues to Venus’ past.
