Covering recent devastating events such as the Haiti earthquake and the Mumbai terror attacks, the project also looks back at some of the defining moments in the past three decades.

The programme features eye-witness accounts from CNN iReporters across the globe, and after the initial screening, the feature will remain live on the CNN website indefinitely.
