    Two Years On: 20 Days in Mariupol Revisited

    Two Years On: 20 Days in Mariupol Revisited

    Last November we were joined in the studio by Ukrainian journalist and writer, Mstyslav Chernov, who made the film '20 Days in Mariupol’. It’s just won the Bafta for Best Documentary, so we thought it would be a good opportunity to remind you of the episode. He described what it was like to shoot the documentary from inside Mariupol, and chronicles the Russian invasion of the Ukrainian port city in 2022.
    Today’s episode is presented by Victoria Derbyshire and Vitaly Shevchenko.

    The producer was Tim Walklate. The technical producer was Mike Regaard. The series producer is Lucy Boast. The senior news editor is Sam Bonham.

Great work by the BBC

The media at its best.

Radoslaw Sikorski

Episode Nov 9, 2022* includes an interview with Radoslaw Sikorski (Poland’s former foreign minister). If only Western politicians spoke like him! Well worth listening to. (*this podcast needs ep. numbers)

Dad you have 5 days to come get us

God those words make me sick. I’m not sure how a parent recovers from hearing his kid call him from a thousand miles away with such a plea. Dad is a hero.

Russian people will so regret the cruelties being performed in their name. From stealing farm equipment to rape and torture, no crime too small or too ugly.
