Best European Radio Documentary of the Year 2008
by Lorenz Rollhäuser, NRD/ARD, Germany
Translated to English by Christiane Bergfeld, Hamburg, Germany, and edited by Drie Deyman and Michael Osmann, Clarksburg, Canada
‘Our memories from the past are mostly evoked by certain objects but also by smell, taste, sound – not
necessarily by the most important things but banal remnants.
When people have to leave their homes – someone has to clean up.
In this feature it is the author himself.
In a very personal but never too private style he takes us back to the provincial town where he grew up
in the sixties. We follow him to the house of his parents – and the places from his rebellious youth
where he tried to escape the expectations of parental home.
But his mother – still alive – has become soft and fragile. There is no more reason to argue.’
by Jair Stein and comp., VPRO, Netherlands
‘“I felt like a woman who loses a breast”.
This is how the story of a man begins who suddenly realizes that he can lose everything if one day
without any warning a tooth falls out.
A collection of absurd short stories from daily life of approximately sixty seconds each. They are true
and wondrous – made to move, surprise and astound.
Though extremely short, the programme demonstrates a new and fresh form of dealing with reality.’
‘A Minor – An Approach from the white Keys’,
by Philip Scheiner, ORF, Austria
