Radio Netherlands Program Preview, Sept 30-Oct 6

The State We're In
Jonathan Groubert and his team look at current events from an unexpected perspective.

This week: Identity crisis

A Dutch woman nearly becomes an unwitting terrorist bomber. A former bullfighter on how the bulls he killed still haunt his dreams, while a British philosopher talks about why he became a bullfighter. And an Irish journalist recounts being incarcerated, wrongly, for internet fraud. A victim of identity theft, she struggles to clear her name.

First airing: Saturday 02:00 UTC

Earth Beat
Marnie Chesterton and her team look at the footprint we’re leaving on our planet.

This week: Carving up our land

We tell stories about the walls we build to divide our environment, and why it’s sometimes best to have no barriers at all. The pros and cons of carving up our land.

First airing: Friday 03:00 UTC

South Asia Wired
Stories from South Asia.

This week:

Sri Lanka and Kashmir have both witnessed decades-long conflict and remain deeply divided after thousands of civilian deaths and disappearances. Would a Truth and Reconciliation Commission heal old wounds, or would it rub salt in them?

To discuss this matter, is Colombo-based Sanjana Hattotuwa from the award-winning site Groundviews, and Mumbai-based lawyer and blogger, Gautam Patel. A cross border debate that airs the similarities and the dark past of the dream island and the mountain paradise.

(There'll be a new edition of the programme on Thursday 6 October 2011)

First airing: Thursday 14:00 UTC

This week Senegal remembers the 2002 shipping disaster in which ferryboat Joola sank, taking 1863 people down with her. While the Senegalese government has largely ignored the tragedy, a young journalist erected his own Joola Monument.
Afrikaans is generally seen as South Africa’s apartheids language. Nowadays though Afrikaans is cool! Contemporary theatre show Afrikaaps, now playing in the Netherlands, rewrites the history of the language.
Kenyan Nobel Peace Prize winner, Wangari Maathai, sadly passed away this week. She used to tell a beautiful little story about the Humblebee, in an attempt to inspire her varied and often highly respected audiences.

First airing: Friday 00:00 UTC

Africa in Progress
Inspiring round-table discussions with guest speakers and in-depth interviews give listeners food for thought.

This week: A tribute to Wangari Maathai

What is it that drives the women who make it to the top and succeed in making a difference in Africa and the rest of the world? This edition presents two powerful African role models: the late Wangari Maathai - the Kenyan environmentalist and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize - and Etweda Cooper - a driving force behind the peace movement in Liberia. Their message for the younger generation: ‘Don’t give up!’
