Charles Glass's interview with Edward Said, "Edward Said: The Last Interview," premiered at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London in 2004 and has been shown in cinemas around the world. A DVD of the interview is available from the ICA and Netflix.

His one-hour documentary, Pity the Nation: Charles Glass's Lebanon (watch it on YouTube Parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), was broadcast in 20 countries and prompted The London Evening Standard critic to call it "one of the best and most heart-rending documentaries I've ever seen."

Human rights groups lauded a Glass documentary about human rights abuses and military escalation, Iraq: Enemies of the State, for the BBC. The documentary was broadcast world-wide six months before Saddam Hussein's invasion of Kuwait.

Among his other BBC documentaries were Stains of War (1992) about war photographers and The Forgotten Faithful (1994) about the Palestinian Christian exodus from the West Bank. He presented the PBS documentary Our Man in Cairo (1993). Glass also contributed to the Commonwealth Award-winning documentary Islam for London Weekend Television in 1978 and the Peabody Award-winning Sadat: An Action Biography for ABC News in 1974.
