EURANET – The European Radio Network

Euranet, the new European radio network, adds colour and motion to the European media. Euranet is a pan-European consortium made up of 16 international, national and regional radio stations from 13 EU member states. The network partners co-produce and transmit programs on European issues, from a European, transnational perspective. Alongside a multilingual, interactive website, which will be launched in summer 2008, Euranet’s broadcasts will stimulate communication between Europeans. Radio Prague is taking part in the project. Stories produced for the network are broadcast by partner stations all over Europe. A selection of them can be found on these pages.

You can listen to Euranet programmes every day here:

Czechs planning first museum dedicated to former German minority

[2010-10-03] Ian Willoughby

The first German speakers settled in the Czech lands in the 13th century, and in the interwar period there were around three million ethnic Germans in Czechoslovakia. That changed completely after World War II, when almost all of them were forcibly expelled from the country. Now, however, their history is being reclaimed – with plans to open the first museum in the Czech Republic dedicated to the country’s former German minority. Radio Prague's Ian Willoughby reports.
Tiger Lillies perform special bi-lingual show in Prague

[2010-10-03] Ian Willoughby

The award-winning British cabaret group the Tiger Lillies premiered a new show in Prague on Sunday night. They have been popular with Czech audiences for many years, but the theatre piece “Here I Am Human!” represents a departure for the band in that it is in both English and Czech, a language the Tiger Lillies don’t understand.

NGOs seek to return original spirit to Communist sullied Women's Day

[2010-03-23] Christian Falvey

Monday is International Women’s Day, and in 2010 that means one hundred years since the holiday was introduced. The idea to highlight the struggle for women’s rights around the world picked up a different tone in communist countries like Czechoslovakia though, and was largely discarded after 1989. Now some NGOs in the Czech Republic want to use the 100th anniversary to reawaken the spirit of activism that Women’s Day originally stood for. Radio Prague's Christian Falvey reports.
