Poles Aloud show 4

Tune in to find out what those Eastern Europeans & a Geordie are up to this week :)

Every Sunday at 5pm on Somer Valley FM – listen again & Monday at 1pm on Bradley Stoke Radio – listen again

Immigration – we’re doing a little myth breaking on the show today looking at David Cameron’s recent speech, as featured in the Telegraph. The scary world of millions of foreigners stealing British jobs (according to some of the press) versus reality. We’re also discussing the spirit of competition in and outside of UK, as a possible clue to the success of the migrant workers.

Halloween versus All Saints Day – Are there any Halloween celebrations in Poland? How is the melancholic day of reflection (All Saints) competing with the westernised idea of fun. A virtual grave yard for those, who can’t visit relatives in person and a coffin calendar that would wake some of the dead.

Tadeusz Mazowiecki – remembering the first non-communist prime minister in Central & Eastern Europe after World War II. Who was he and why was his role so important in co-creating a free and independent Poland.


Economy – East goes further East. As England visited China, Poland followed suit and searched for contacts with South Korea promoting Polish industry. Plus few other economy related news items.

Apart from a weekly radio show, we also organise a free annual music, art and culture event in the Colston Hall’s foyer – find out more details here and on facebook.
