SBS is asking viewers to vote online for their favourite stories, with the most popular story being aired in September.

Global Village has been informing and entertaining SBS viewers for ten years. We have loyal viewers who tune in to the show every day but we thought this would be a chance for viewers to do the talking,” said host Silvio Rivier.

“From our 2000 episode journey, I am sure viewers have their own favourite stories they would like to see again. This is an opportunity for them to vote for their favourite Global Village stories online,” he said.

Viewers can nominate their top episode at www.sbs.com.au/globalvillage. Voting will close on Friday, 18 September.

  4. Great, informative look at other countries in this wonderful world. So much beautiful scenery, history ,character, and architecture from ancient times. Plus the cooking which is so interesting, especially from France and Italy. Makes Australia look pretty dull and boring! Wish it was an hour show. Silvio is a great presentator, he speaks so clearly. Thanks for a great show!! Not to forget Thalassa which is a great show also, .

  5. I love watching all the episodes of France and Italy. Also the local chefs which are featured in the short segments.
    Long live “Global Village” and long live “Silvio Rivier” Hip, Hip, Hooray!!
    It has a great coverage of just about every place in the world.
    Do I get the feeling that Silvio loves Madagascar?
    My husband being a fisherman just loves Sunday night when Thalassa is on.
