The Next Village “The Dickensian Bargain”

Global education radio series produced by Maurice Macartney
The first Millennium Development Goal aims to cut poverty in half by 2015. Some progress has been made in that direction, particularly in China, where millions have worked their way out of poverty, apparently through trade.
In The Dickensian Bargain TNV’s Maurice Macartney talks to Dr Alfred Hickey M’Sichili of Comhlámh and Dr Diane Holt of the Trickle Out Project, examining questions of power, trade and enterprise, and asking if the markets be made to work for the poor.



The Next Village “‘School’s Out: the Struggle for Education'”

Global education radio series produced by Maurice Macartney.
MDG2 calls for free primary education for all by 2015; but at current rates, school will remain out of the question for many children by the target date. In this programme we talk to Ciara Gaynor of Oxfam and Paul O’Callaghan of Queen’s University Belfast, to find out why education is worth the struggle. www.thenextvillage.org

The Next Village (808 Series)

Inspired by the BBC’s A History of the world in 100 objects, 808 is a miniature series brought to you by The Next Village, which explores 8 objects and 8 objectives.
In each of these 8 short programmes, TNV chooses an object, artifact or artwork of Irish origin. The object is explored with the aim of discovering and extracting its connections with one of the Millennium Development Goals.

The Next Village “New Global Neighbourhood”

The last of the Millennium Development Goals sets out the aim of building a global partnership for development. In this, the last programme in the series, Maurice Macartney argues that we must build a new sense of global neighbourhood if we are to have genuine partnership. We cannot live as we do without affecting others; we do not have two or three worlds, just one. Time to learn to share it.
