TITLE: “The Never Never”
ORIGINAL LAGUAGE: English
AUTHORS: Barcroft Boake, Henry Lawson
PRODUCERS: Libby Douglas, Jane Ulman
DIRECTOR: Libby Douglas, Jane Ulman
SOUND ENGINEER: Russell Stapleton
OTHER KEY STAFF: Rhys Muldoon (Reader), Madelaine Slattery (Singer) 
LENGHT: 7’
COMPETING CATEGORY: Short form


            The harsh desert country of the Australian outback is often referred to as Never Never. The first known reference to the expression comes from THE OLD COLONIALS, written by A.J.Boyd in 1882:“What on earth is to be done in this wretched Never Never country?” 

The term was taken up in 1891 by poet, Barcroft Boake, a surveyor and boundary rider who hanged himself with his stockwhip when he was only 26 years old.
“Out on the wastes of the Never Never –
That’s where the dead men lie!
There where the heat-waves dance forever –
That’s where the dead men lie!”
In turn, his poem WHERE THE DEAD MEN LIE was the inspiration for a story by one of this country’s great prose writers, Henry Lawson. THE AUSTRALIAN CINEMATOGRAPH, written in 1896, is regarded as Australia’s first screenplay. Anticipating the development of dramatic cinema, Lawson wrote his story with clear directions for the camera.
IN THE FOREGROUND A DRY “TANK” OR CLAY PAN, FROM WHICH THE LAST PINT OF WATER HAS EVAPORATED JUST AN HOUR OR SO FOR THE CLAY PAN IS STIL “SMOKING”
It tells of a drover who has been away from his family for some months. His way home lies through drought-stricken country; country where many have perished before. His family waits in for his return, his wife finally expecting the worst. Throughout, the storyteller is visited by Boake’s song.
STRONG, SWELLING MUSIC SOMEWHERE, WITH THE WORDS OF THE SONG  HAUNTING IT 

This short radiophonic piece draws on the work of both writers; a reconception of Boakes’s poem with fragments from Lawson’s short story. Through sound, text and music, it explores the unease of European settlers in the landscape, their apprehension of danger, their stoic friendships, their riven families. The human voice describes what can be seen, the music and the song suggest the unseen (the past in the present) and both are underscored by the language of nature.

TITLE: “The devil in Music”
ORIGINAL LAGUAGE: English
AUTHORS: Jane Ulmann, Russell Stapleton
PRODUCERS: Jane Ulmann, Russell Stapleton
DIRECTOR: Jane Ulmann, Russell Stapleton
SOUND ENGINEER: Russell Stapleton
LENGHT: 51’29’’
COMPETING CATEGORY: Documentary


            An interval is the distance between 2 musical notes. But why has a certain interval acquired the reputation of embodying or even conjuring up The Devil ?  The humble tritone (6 semitones) is also known in music theory as an augmented fourth or diminished fifth. First officially notated by the scholar Guido d’Arezzo in the 11th century and said to have been banned from Sacred  Music for centuries, this Devil’s Interval was labelled “Diabolus in Musica”,  The Devil in Music, because of the unsettling feelings it created in both the singer and listener. Whether the diminished fifth really does contain diabolical properties or is simply a scary-sounding interval is probably a theological issue rather than a musical one. But we invite you to come to your own conclusion in this program with a devilish twist! 

In “The devil in Music” program makers Jane Ulman and Russell Stapleton take us on a rich musical journey to unravel the mysterious effect of this humble interval. They talk to composers, musicians and listeners and even summon The Devil himself to explain just exactly what he’s been up to!

            In the program you’ll hear a musical melange sampling Wagner, Bernstein, Metallica, Stravinsky, Radiohead, Bernard Hermann, Danny Elfman, Hendrix, Mussorgsky , Beethoven, Mozart. Black Sabbath and more!

TITLE: “Marrying Out”, Part 1
ORIGINAL LAGUAGE: English
AUTHOR: Siobhan McHugh
PRODUCER: Siobhan McHugh
DIRECTOR: Siobhan McHugh
SOUND ENGINEER: Steven Tilley
LENGHT: 36’48’’
COMPETING CATEGORY: Documentary



The man below is cut out of three wills. A couple’s honeymoon vehicle is sabotaged. Children practise their faith in secret. A woman is denied a deathbed visit to her father.  A quarter of the population is barred from applying for jobs.

            The programme is about passion and prejudice, family feuds and religious discrimination. They trace couples who married across a bitter religious/political divide in Australia that harks back to its establishment as a British colony in 1788, became entrenched after the Great Irish Famine in the 19th century and the divided loyalties of the First World War and whose legacy is still evident today. 

The Old Texts reflect ancient antagonisms between the Irish and the English, which caused terrible conflict when one side married the other. Religion became code for identity: Irish was perceived as Catholic, English or Scotch as Protestant. To marry across these lines was seen as consorting with the enemy by many. This virtual social apartheid existed in parts of Australia to the 1970s.

            “Marrying Out” is a documentary feature that uses original music, archival sound, dramatisations and cultural motifs like religious music to amplify the emotional resonances of 25 compelling real life stories, gathered over two years. Sectarianism is a subject that has been denied and glossed over in modern Australia, which prides itself on being the second most multicultural nation on earth (after Israel). Today, attention is focused on racism towards Indians or Lebanese Muslims in Australia. Yet the wounds of earlier racial and religious prejudice are still so raw that some people interviewed were so mindful of family backlash that they could not use their full name. 

Producer Siobhan McHugh brings a rueful touch to the narration, as she discloses her own ambiguous identity. A ‘refugee from the Catholic Church in Ireland’, she finds that Australia will not permit her to unshackle her cultural Catholicism from her native Irishness. She explores how Irishness in Australia, as in Ireland, is defined as Not English, with Catholic ritual providing the ‘sacred weather’ along the way. Behind the stories of bullying priests and bigotry, she discovers real grievances – institutional discrimination, social injustice and searing family fatwas. But there is also love, compassion and generosity, as some couples come to mutual accommodation, and liberate their children from centuries-old stereotypes.

COMPETING CATEGORY: Short form


“Sofrony in 7 minutes” is an audio experiment, the purpose of which is to present a text, written during the second half of the XIX century, published in 1862 as an appendix for the newspaper “Danubian Swan” and considered to be the first Bulgarian autobiography, to a brand new audience by overcoming all time and regional language boundaries of the original, by means of a “radio language” from 2010. A mixture of radio drama and documentary, authentic and artificially generated sounds and atmospheres, in addition to a psychological observation of the act of listening during the 7-minute program – this is the old text by Sofrony, revisited for radio. 

Sofrony Vrachanski is a Bulgarian bookman, writer, calligrapher, artist, religious figure and at the end of his life a bishop, born in 1739 in Kotel, at the time within the boundaries of the Ottoman Empire, who died in 1813 in Bucharest, Wallachia at the time. In 1964 he was canonized by the Bulgarian Orthodox Church.

TITLE: “The Adventure in Shumen”
ORIGINAL TITLE: “Shumenskoto prikluchenie”
ORIGINAL LAGUAGE: Bulgarian
AUTHOR: Rosa Encheva
PRODUCER: Ivailo Savov
DIRECTOR: Ivailo Savov
SOUND ENGINEER: Dragomir Simeonov
LENGHT: 26’09’’
COMPETING CATEGORY: Documentary 


            “The Adventure in Shumen” tells an urban story from the beginning of 1875. At that time Bulgaria is still within the boundaries of the Ottoman Empire. Only three years separate the Bulgarians from the end of the 5-century long slavery. At the core of this story is the wedding between a Bulgarian woman and a foreigner, which becomes the cause for ardent disputes. An epic battle takes place between the supporters and the opponents to this bond. The young intellectuals oppose the marriage between the rich and educated girl from Shumen and the Belgian engineer with a shady reputation. The Belgian and the French Consul, the Turkish government, the Orthodox Church and the city elite intervene in the solution of the conflict. 

The events get a wide coverage in the Balkan press at the time. Our radio story is based upon texts, written by the great Bulgarian poet, revolutionary and publicist Hristo Botev for the newspaper “Flag” in January and February of 1875. At that time he is living and working along with the Bulgarian emigrants in Romania and the newspaper “Flag” turns into a tribune of the Bulgarian patriots and leaders of the national liberation movement. 

The story about the “wedding in Shumen” is told also through the plot of the first Bulgarian comedy “The Misunderstood Civilization” by Dobri Voynikov. It is written 4 years earlier and it mirrors the main question of the Bulgarian Renaissance – how can we guard ourselves against the superficial imitation in the clash between tradition and modernity and find the examples that are truly worthy of following. Its author Dobri Voynikov is a teacher in Shumen and also the creator of the first Bulgarian dramaturgy texts. He studies music and participates as a violinist in the first Bulgarian orchestra playing European music, which is formed again in Shumen. In the radio story at hand interweave also reminiscences of contemporaries of the events, interpreted later in the periodical press and the belles lettres of the local authors. 

This is a tale from 130 years ago, but its real ending our story seeks in contemporary Bulgaria. Just like back in the days, today the Bulgarian and the European element meet again. Will this meeting result in a harmonic dialogue is yet to be seen. 

In the program we use works, based on music sheets from Dobri Voynikov discovered, restored and recorded in the studio of Radio Shumen.

TITLE: Library “Bulgarian Reality Novels”: “The Intrigues of the Harem – Chapter 9”
ORIGINAL TITLE: Biblioteka “Bulgarski reality romani”:”Koznite na Harema – 9-a glava”
ORIGINAL LAGUAGE: Bulgarian
AUTHORS: Emil Yanev, Kin Stoyanov
PRODUCER: Emil Yanev
DIRECTOR: Kin Stoyanov
SOUND ENGINEER: Kamen Zhekov
LENGHT: 60’
COMPETING CATEGORY: Drama 



            Authors: 10 Balkan writers, historians and translators are creating live at studio 4 of the Bulgarian National Radio with the help of hosts Emil Yanev and Kin Stoyanov: a reality novel of 10 chapters.
Sources: The epoch when the story of “The Intrigues of the Harem” takes place – 1397 – is depicted in: “The Life of Stefan Lazarevich” by Konstantin Kostenechki – a filosopher from the 15th century; “Anonymous Bulgarian Chronicle from 15th century”; “Mirror of the World” by Mehmed Neshri from the end of the 15th century; “History of the Ottoman Court” by Ashik-Pasha-Zade, 15th century.
Message: By returning to the grand and tragic times of the late 14th century, when the history of the Balkans was written in blood and the Yatagan was facing the Sward, the radio-readers can draw parallels with the current 21st century – still torn by wars, ethnic and religious intolerance. In this hostile and blood-thirsty context the producers are looking for the roots of the humaneness which we so much need even in the present day. The family, the hearth and the woman intertwined as symbols in the Balkan harem from centuries ago are having an unexpected influence over history events. The grandiose clash between two civilizations, two cultures and two religions lead to the creation of a new institution: the non-traditional harem in which we come across women from all corners of the Balkans. Each one of them looks different, she is of different age and nationality but they all have a common husband – the almighty sultan of the future Ottoman Empire. And it is precisely them that are meant for tenderness that stand up as an invisible guard at the gates of Europe. The harem concentrates strength, it formulates power. This is the power of the woman over man, hence her power over history. 

The plot:   After the revolt of Bulgarian vassal Ivan Radomir Sultan Valid Chan sends his son Aslan at the head of their army to conquer Vidin. Valid himself takes off to Bursa to deal with the threat in the face of Timor Leng and his army. The Sultan’s mother – Valide Hanum is worried to learn that her other son – Erol is alive, but is in the camp of Timor. Looking for a way to save him, she is also thinking of the future heir to the throne who would be ruling the empire. The first-born son of Valid Chan – Aslan, whose mother is Hadija – a princess from Montenegro, is severely ill. Spying for Valide Hanum is Laonik Hyton – a captured Byzantine chronicler, who is constantly in competition with the eunuch Aziz – the eyes and ears of the Sultan at the harem. Gulfie, who is actually a Bulgarian princess, is the sister of Ivan Radomir, stays often in the chambers of Valid Chan and falls in love with him. Hadija – the First Wife and mother of Aslan, feels hurt and decides to join the plot for poisoning Valid Chan. Osman – a janissary and a Bulgarian spy who pretends to be a eunuch at the court gives a ring containing poison to Gulfie and pushes her to kill Valid Chan in the name of Bulgaria. The assassination plot fails and Osman is thrown in jail. The janissary does not reveal the dreadful secret that he is the real father of crown prince Aslan and not Valid Chan. The Action continues a year later, when the heir to the throne Mussa is born. He is the son of Valid Chan and Gulfie. The baby is abducted by Bulgarian clairvoyant Anna and taken to a monastery high in the mountains. Gulfie is devastated and tries to put an end to her life, but Aziz the eunuch saves her and hides her. The story continues many decades later, told by the old Hyton, who has traced down Mussa and Gulfie. He has found out that they live in a high mountain monastery. According to clairvoyant Anna Mussa, renamed Michail, would give the origin for the revival of the lost Bulgarian kingdom centuries later.

LENGHT: 23’12’’
COMPETING CATEGORY: Drama


“A Miracle in For” portrayed in this radio play is a story about repressed majority in the town which decided to slaughter boastful minority who were in power, but the blood dropping out of the cross which bared witness to their conspiracy interfered and postponed their rebellious plans.
The priest Lukanić, one of the main conspirators is burdened by all this and his conscience to the point where he loses his mind, while the rest of the citizens regret their intentions, inflict punishment on themselves and beg for forgiveness.
On February 6th 2010 was marked 500 years of “the miracle” happened in Hvar with the big procession and the celebration of St. Crucifix, with the prayers and songs that can also be heard in this radio play.
The only unauthentic thing in this radio play is language. 500 years ago, people in Hvar spoke in so called chakavian dialect, unlike the chakavian spoken today. As an author, I have decided to use chakavian dialect due to its beauty and moderness.
It is said that the girl who discovered the bleeding crucifix (and whose name nobody ever wrote down) was ironing at the time of the event. To this day, on St.Crucifix (Križić) Day – if you don’t happen to be in the procession or are not singing religious songs – you should, at least, not use an iron.

            «At the Crossroads» is a part of the cycle that consists of 8 short documentary forms about fantastic creatures from the region of Istria: harridans, warlocks, wizards, hags, nightmares, dark. Most of the testimonies we gathered speak particularly about the protagonists of the archetypal struggle between good and evil:  wizards and witches. Across the peninsula, many oral traditions have been preserved about their powers and rituals of protection. In this radio-broadcast we are focused on their appearances at the crossroads, at midnight.

            Those beliefs are still so rooted in the collective memory of the Istrians that many details are repeated and they match  in even very remote villages and towns, which are, by all other characteristics, the settlements of this century. Of course, testimonies and family stories connected with the occult were sometimes reluctantly spoken about. In some cases, the whole villages remained silent. However, we were very lucky, openness prevailed.

            At first sight, the contrast between the cultured ways of our most developed and most European region and its impregnation with the mythical and esoteric at the same time – is fascinating. But thinking twice, we’ll find the Istrian oral tradition about primordial fear, because this is the thing in question, to be a universal story which cannot be canceled by “progress”. Just the opposite –  as the global conflict between “good and evil” is  getting into its full swing, archetypal stories spring to the surface.
We thank many ethnologists, anthropologists and friends who have sent us to the key informants. But we also discovered many “undiscovered” ones throughout Istria – in the gardens, in front of their houses, along the roads. We also thank the editor, Nada Zoričić, who has launched the program of ethnofantasy.

            There are places on Earth where it seems that all the energy from the space pours into one point, like it comes down through a funnel; the places of strong magnetism, hubs of energy flows – like the Bermuda triangle. But there are also places where different periods of history can meet, and, as a result, curious combinations occur when two distant time zones clash. A house on a cliff above Lovran, built on an intersection of the lines of time and energy forces, is an ideal place for meeting of the souls of those who had been familiar with that house during their lifetime; some had known it for good, but more often it has been known for bad things, because the spirit – immaterial duration of energy in time – finds its energetic ‘food’ on such places. Solitary, placed a kilometer and a half far from the village of Lovranska Draga, the house stands as a lighthouse on a stone plateau, arched by a couple of hudred meters high steep rock.
(Damir Konestra) 

We were led to ‘The Haunted House’ and a nearby village by Borivoj Bukva, a radiesthesist, bioenergeticist, crystaltherapist, astronumerologist, writer, haiku poet, painter, theosophist, jogger, mountaineer – a creative and most of all free investigator of different dimensions of life.

            „Stećak“ are medieval tombstones scattered on cemeteries and mountaintops of Bosnia, Croatia and Montenegro, often in the mountainous wilderness. According to some theories, this thombestones are related to the mysterious “Bosnian Church” and heretic Bogomilism. The members of this church were also called Bosnian Patarens, and they mysteriously appeared and disappeared in this area.  However, some researchers deny this theory, claiming that the tombstones are the expression of a particular historical time in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and that belong to all its inhabitants, because they all, the Orthodox and Catholics, were buried beneath them.
There are mainly three forms of the tombstones: they appear in the form of a sarcophagus, plate and pillar. Most of the tombstones are in a modest form, without ornaments, but there are thombstones with decorations and labels. Particularly are famous those with poetic inscriptions that speak of the life of the deceased and destiny of man as mortal being. 

This program is inspired by  the poetry of this thombstones that echoes in modern poetry and poetry of the youngest generation.
