Radio Netherlands Program Preview, Sept 23-29
The State We're In
Jonathan Groubert and his team look at current events from an unexpected perspective.
A woman in Mumbai finds out what beauty really means after her husband throws acid in her face. A young Dutch woman reveals how she became a prostitute – and then a recruiter – for so-called ‘loverboys’. And a mother of a ‘loverboy’ victim explains how she’s fighting back.
First airing: Saturday 02:00 UTC
Marnie Chesterton and her team look at the footprint we’re leaving on our planet.
Keeping it clean
Getting rid of dirt and being clean is seen as a good thing. But what happens when we take clean to the extreme? Plus, why it could pay not to apply the elbow grease. Earth Beat, a little bit dirty, but in a good way.
First airing: Friday 03:00 UTC
South Asia Wired
Stories from South Asia.
What do you do if you hear your neighbours fighting and screaming? In India, the ‘Bel Bajao’ campaign asks people to simply ring the neighbour’s doorbell. Not just to interrupt the fighting, but also to show the neighbours that someone is listening and that people know what’s going on. It helps tackle domestic violence, the campaigners say. But does it really?
Also on the programme, an interview with Heera, an American-Indian hip hop and rap artist who came to India to help street kids find a better future, using breakdancing and rapping to achieve his goal.
(There'll be a new edition of the programme on Thursday 29 September)
First airing: Thursday 14:00 UTC
Bridges With Africa
We're giving the microphone to Diaspora groups in Europe and are linking up with stations in Africa.
Journalist from Ethiopia chased from his country – thanks Wikileaks! Dutch government cuts billions of euros in development aid – does it really matter? Serious rap from South Africa’s capital.
Africa in Progress
Inspiring round-table discussions with guest speakers and in-depth interviews give listeners food for thought.
Naming, shaming and jailing: undercover in Africa Anas Aremeyaw Anas is a man whose aim is to name, shame and jail people. He does his work wearing elaborate disguises, and uses tiny hidden cameras to expose all kinds of abuses.
At great personal risk, he has gone undercover as a psychiatric patient, a pastor, a student, a labourer, a pimp, a woman, and even a tribal king. As a result of his work, corrupt officials have been arrested and measures have been taken to protect vulnerable citizens.
First airing: Monday 18:00 UTC
A selection of winning stories chosen from the large number of entries for the 2010 Commonwealth Short Story Competition.
The Lift - by Matthew Gibbs (Australia). A story about child trafficking.
First airing: Tuesday 00:55 UTC
Who says I can’t… is the motto of this year’s collaboration of international broadcasters, offering stories of defiance and perseverance.
Who says I can’t escape?
Canada is a nation of immigrants. Its self-image as a safe haven for refugees is a point of national pride. But there is always a gatekeeper, a bureaucrat in an immigration office who says you can - or can’t - come in. And that’s where broadcaster Natasha Fatah begins the story of Eduardo Lopez in her documentary Escape from Honduras, from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
First airing: Monday 17:30 UTC
