The story of two video reports: Unemployment and Homosexuality in Black and White

01/06/2012

The members of the Bush Radio newsroom recently produced two videos* as part of their training at the station. Besides their radio duties the volunteer run newsroom is exploring ways to use basic technology to share news content in a converged media environment. If you have any feedback on these video clips please mail ideas@bushradio.co.za or comment below.

Unemployment: Our goal with the unemployment video was to show the high rate of unemployment in South Africa.  Unemployment is directly linked to poverty.  Our goal was to show how one woman who lives in the township and is unemployed, how she lives and her daily struggles.  In the country the huge contrast between rich and poor is so visible and needs serious attention.

Homosexuality in Black and White: We have reported on stories such as the killing of Zoliswa Nkonyana who was stoned to death in Khayelitsha because she was a lesbian, which provoked outrage amongst activists.  This story and many similar ones in Cape Town made us decide on focusing on homosexuality with our second video.  Our goal with the homosexuality video was to show how differently gays and lesbians are treated in South Africa.

*The videos were shot using a Canon PowerShot A22 camera and edited on Windows Movie Maker.

Both videos were originally published on Bushradionews

The Actor, the Canadian and the journalist

15/04/2011

This past week at Bush Radio was filled with several reunions at the station.

On Tuesday well-known stage and television actor Vinette Ebrahim popped into the station to talk to Denisia Adams about her current play “My Naam is Ellen Pakkies“, which is on at the Baxter Theatre.

Vinette Ebrahim and Denisia Adams

Vinette is most popular for her role in the soap opera 7de Laan, but we at Bush Radio remember her as the narrator of a series of
programmes we produced in 1998 with Molo Songololo, the national children’s rights network, called Silent Shame, Silent Crime which dealt with incest.

We pulled a recording from our archives and played it for her. Click here to listen

John Tottenham, Wesley Wessels (centre) and Janelle Nichols

We then had another visit from someone who was last at Bush Radio in 2004. John Tottenham was a participant in a programme run at the station with a group called Canada World Youth. John was a student at the University of Waterloo at that time and during the project he was teamed up with former Bush Radio trainee and now editor of The Dankish, Wesley Wessels, who also came along for the visit.

John is currently working for an engineering company in Canada and came to show his wife, Janelle, South Africa.
