BBC Radio 4 Feature on Malta

We have recently assisted BBC Radio 4 in the production of an episode for their “Crossing Continents” series, focusing on foreign affairs issues. Reporter Tim Whewell embarks on a journey to understand the impact of Daphne Caruana Galizia’s murder on Maltese society. Whewell tries to understand who Daphne was through a series of interviews with friends, politicians, journalists and ordinary people.

Since she was murdered by a car bomb in October, the European Union Commission has started scrutinising the rule of law on the island. In Malta, Daphne was a divisive figure – admired by some as a fearless investigative journalist, detested by others as a snobbish “queen of bile.”

She herself said that there were “two Maltas” – and the reaction to her murder has proved it. So was Daphne’s death a political assassination – as one Malta says – or a criminal killing without wider implications, as the other Malta insists?

The feature will be aired on BBC Radio 4 at 11am on Thursday 14th December and subsequently published as a podcast on the radio’s website.
