The series, which began on October 16, is aired every Sunday at 8.30 pm with a repeat telecast the following Saturday at 4.30 pm.

Divided into 12 episodes, ‘Impact: Songs that Changed the World’ features interviews with recording artistes, cultural and political pundits, religious leaders, radio and television commentators, musicologists, sociologists and even music aficionados.
