Programme #40 (Extra COVID-19 special, March 2020)

Radio in the garden, well within the 2km limit from home, and tuned to Flirt FM 101.3 of course.

In this second special edition of Wireless to mark the COVID-19 crisis, we look in depth at how radio in France, Spain and Italy is covering the pandemic and hear how stations are dealing with the threats posed to journalists and volunteer broadcasters. Researchers and activists in community radio in all three countries tell us how they are rising to the challenge and staying on air despite the circumstances. The programme also includes expert analysis of what the crisis might mean for radio as a medium.
