MN.10.11.1983. Robert Haslach

This early edition of Media Network included an interview with a former producer and translator in the English section of Radio Netherlands, the American Robert Haslach. In 1983 he published his account of Dutch world broadcasting in which he was quite critical of one of the early announcers/hosts on the radio station, Eddy Startz.

The program also profiles UN Radio in Geneva, who for many years would broadcast programs in Russian on SSB in the hope that Russian radio stations would pick them off the air and rebroadcast them. As they admitted at the time, they had no way of knowing if any station was actually using them.
