World Sight Day: using radio to reach out

Your rating: None (1 vote)

Your rating: None (1 vote)

Author: Suchi Gaur, October 92015 - All I can remember of comics from my childhood days are images of me flipping through the fresh pages of Archies, Pinky, Chacha Chowdhary, Biloo, Tintin and Champak amongst many others. And while I sat watching Avengers sometime back, all I could think of (beyond analyzing the movie on SFX and characterization, plot, story) was how every (mostly) comic character, hero, at the end is trying to save the world, restore peace.

Author: James Deane, September 28 2015 - Ahead of this week's UN [United Nations] summit in New York [United States], BBC Media Action’s Director of Policy and Learning argues for a stronger focus on the provision of information as well as resources.

Author: Siddhartha Swarup, September 28 2015 - A simple but effective new prop is helping health workers in India tackle one of the country’s biggest killers, says BBC Media Action’s Deputy Country Director, Siddhartha Swarup.
