New Documentaries Premiering Exclusively on WORLD YouTube


WORLD's documentaries have always been available on television, on our website and the PBS app. Over the years, YouTube has been the destination for short films, filmmaker interviews and digital extras with an occasional feature-length film release – like Two Dollars and a Dream by Stanley Nelson.

With SEVA in December, and this Friday's premiere of Raising the Floor, WORLD subscribers can watch a new documentary, exclusive to YouTube, exploring how individuals and communities come together to create positive change, every month.

Stream on any device, any time.

Raising the Floor | January 19

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic sent the majority Latinx city of Chelsea, MA spiraling into chaos. Hundreds of citizens waited in lines for food, prompting city leaders to come up with a simple but inspired idea: a Guaranteed Income to be spent on basic necessities.

SEVA | Now Streaming

In March 2020, the CDC declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. SEVA highlights how the pandemic profoundly impacted people, and how Sikhs contributed to helping and saving lives around the world by responding to the crisis and redefining what seva looks like. This film aims to honor those who lost their lives and the Sikhs who selflessly served during one of humanity’s darkest hours. Created by Nishkam TV and the SALDEF SikhLEAD internship class of 2021 under the mentorship of their film teacher Harbaldeep Singh.
