PRIX MARULI – OLD TEXTS REVISITED @ Organizer
INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF RADIO PLAYS AND DOCUMENTARY RADIO DRAMASPRIX MARULI_ – OLD TEXTS REVISITED is a festival organized by the Drama Department of Croatian Radio in co-operation with the European Broadcasting Union (EBU).
The contest is open to all regular and associate members of the EBU, as well as to other broadcasting organisations and free producers.
A. INTENTIONS OF THE FESTIVAL
The intentions are implied in the Festival’s motto – old texts revisited, and the components of the motto should be interpreted including all the layers of their meaning.
1. (a) Old texts refers to literature, regardless of its genre or form, poetry or prose ( poems, epics, dramas, novels etc.), i.e. all literary works inherited from the past. However, the Festival gladly welcomes programmes based on so-called borderline texts, not belonging to literature in the strictest sense, and on other artefacts, e.g. complete or fragmentary notes, which are witty or observant or show the spirit of the times, and which transfer past spiritual experience into the present ( epitaphs, letters, recorded oral tradition: customs and rituals, legends, myths, fairytales etc. and songs, biographical and autobiographical notes, entries in a diary and other personal notes, historical documents and the like). In brief, old texts refers to old literary texts, but also to any other document or written form of cultural heritage which eludes literary classification.
(b) An old text in this context is considered to be any text predating 1894, which marks the beginning of radio broadcasting.
2. Revisited – the second part of the Festival’s motto refers to the strength and appeal of an old text, and its power to find a reflection in the present, in particular, to find a new artistic form suited for the radio. In this respect, the intention of the Festival is to encourage genuine radio expressiveness. The old text is viewed as a model, a point of departure and a challenge. The radio adopts it, transforms it, and broadcasts it to its listeners as an authentic work of radio-art. The Festival would like to affirm the diversity of approaches, forms and methods, and in view of this aim it stresses its openness to various genres of radio-art.
B. IMPORTANT DATES
The Festival begins on May 8, 2004 and lasts 7 days.
The participation note should be sent by February, 2004.
The completed registration form should be sent by March 10, 2004.

Since the intention of the Festival is also to encourage the revival of old vernaculars, broadcasts based on national literary heritage are particularly welcome.

From tiny waves to beating hearts @ Birger Amundsen
The human voice communicates more than words alone; barely audible shades of yearning, pain and quivering joy. How can you as a documentary maker capture these tiny rippeling waves? Birger Amundsen will in his workshop tell about practical use of the microfone and play examples from his abundant treasure box.
What do our listeners want to listen to? @ Peter Klein
But what do we know about the taste and the needs of our listeneres? And if we know their desires is it really clever
to follow them?
The Austrian Broadcasting Corporation did in the last 15 years a lot of scientific research about this questions.
We know very precisly which documentaries our listeners liked and which they disliked. We even know why and how long
they listened to concrete and single programmes and why and when they lost their attention or interest.
We can say which genre or style they prefere. This results are internationally convertible. And they are provocativ.
Because what radiomakers consider to be a good programme must not automaticaly be an interesting piece of work in the minds
of the listeners.
Nelson Mandela : A audio history @ Joe Richman
We hope you can tune in.
Joe Richman and Sue Johnson
MANDELA: AN AUDIO HISTORY
– A rare recording of the 1964 trial that resulted in Mandela’s life sentence
– A visit between Mandela and his wife, Winnie, secretly recorded by a prison guard
– Marching songs of guerilla soldiers
– Government propaganda films
– Pirate radio broadcasts from the African National Congress
This is the story of the struggle against apartheid told through rare sound recordings, the voice of Nelson Mandela himself, as well as those who fought with him, and against him.
Throughout this past year we have been conducting interviews and digging through archives all over South Africa — dusting off wax records and splicing together forgotten reel-to-reel tapes. Many of these archival recordings have never been broadcast before.
Mandela’s journey from “terrorist” to President is one of the most remarkable stories of our generation. MANDELA: AN AUDIO HISTORY airs every day this week (April 26-30) to mark the 10th anniversary of South Africa’s first free democratic election.
