Poles Aloud Show – 17th & 19th Jan 2016

Today we’re discussing how the same series known to us from childhood can turn out to be different depending on the country you’re from. We’ve discovered that the Moomins which the British audience has watched over the years are not the same as the ones Poles know from their TV experience. Well, they are quite similar, however there’s a twist – so do tune in to our show to find out more.

Have you seen the Hairy Bikers’ trip to Poland? Not yet? It’s a must watch, but not on an empty stomach. Have they done justice to the Polish cuisine? Will every person in Britain now know what bigos is and how to make your own sausage? We’ll have a little chat about that on the show today.

We also just came back from our holidays in Poland and brought you some interesting stories from the south-eastern region of Podkarpacie, that we’ll be sharing on the Poles Aloud show regularly. And we’ve got the usual bits of World Weird Web and Polish for Beginners.

Poles Aloud Show – 16th & 18th August

This week we’re brining you some classical Polish ballads to the airwaves – cuddle up with your sweetheart (or a pillow, they don’t complain that much I’ve noticed) and listen to romantic Polish tunes.

On a completely different note, we spoke to George Byczynski from the British Poles campaign about their next initiative which is to encourage Polish people to donate blood to NHS. Follow #PolishBlood on twitter & facebook to see the feedback from the public and tune in to Poles Aloud to find out the details (a lot of Poles will donate their blood on Thu 20th August).
