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

Exclusive: Auriol Hays performs for listeners

02/02/2012

From being raised in various parts of Cape Town to living in Johannesburg to performing at the Montreux Jazz Festival, Auriol Hays has had an interesting career…so far. What is clear when you listen to her music and watch her perform is passion. She decided to share this passion with Bush Radio listeners with an exclusive performance of 3 songs at the studio.

Below are recordings of Don’t Speak, My Funny Valentine, In Love with the Past as well as the complete interview.

Sive Msolo (Breakfast Rush & Deep House Sermon) also got a chance to interview Auriol, on her music, being a reluctant house music icon, life and of course, passion.

Local and International support for Bush Radio

03/11/2011

We have been really grateful to all the people who have given and shared goodwill with us to help keep the station going. The support has been amazing, from Aunty Val who dropped off sugar and tea, to singers Lira and Thandiswa Mazwai who recorded messages of support for us.

Appeals have also gone international; former interns have donated and our friends at Public Acheivement* in Northern Ireland have put together a screening of the Academy Award winning film Tsotsi this Sunday the 6th November 2011.

You can lend your financial support to Bush Radio by donating (CLICK HERE) or supporting us with your advertising.

* Public Achievement is Northern Ireland’s leading youth-focussed civic education organisation, and over the last 9 years they have been a partner with Bush Radio in a variety of projects including a youth project addressing violence as experienced by young people.
