The very first show of In-Depth on NEAR FM looks at Globilisation from an African perspective.

Experts Dr. Tajudeen Abdul - Raheen and Dr. Constantin Gurdgiev gave their opinions just recently during the annual lecture of the African Centre on Lower Abbey Street.

A regular feature on In-Depth will be the "Entertainment News" - for this episode we asked visitors of the ZOO about their opinion and highlight the "Save the Rhino" campaign.

All throughout the month of June we will bring you a rather different World Cup special where we don´t talk about Football but about participating countries. Kicking off with the Host country Germany it is a pleasure to play an exclusive Interview with EX - Kraftwerk Karl Bartos before playing one of their most famous tunes.

Tune in on 101,6 or listen to us on the Internet using the Livestreaming option on www.nearfm.ie

In-Depth is on every Tuesday between 3.30p.m. - 4.30p.m.

To come(!)

13.06.06 - Climate Change

20.06.06 - Accomplished musicians (what to do to make it)

27.06.06. - The conflict between Israel and Palestine

(!) - subject to change

The show will feature an interview with Deborah Rees from SAFECONCERTS in the UK as well as an interesting interview with Jimmy McDonnell who is the self proclaimed biggest fan of Snooker player Jimmy White. One not to be missed!!
