‘Aqui’ hot TV in Brazil

SAO PAULO, Brazil — Whether it’s filming the suicide leap of a teen or live drug shootouts, the TV news show “Aqui, Agora” (Here and Now) is the hottest thing on Brazilian television.

Its cinema verite style of presenting the news in a spontaneous, unedited format has won legions of viewers and high ratings.

The nightly show is produced by SBT Network.

In one shocking report recently aired, the camera zoomed in on a 16-year-old as she hurtled seven stories to her death.

Eight hours later, the grisly footage was broadcast nationwide. The program’s ratings jumped by one-third, reaching 3.2 million viewers in greater Sao Paulo alone.
