A Selection of Community Radio Scripts with Accompanying Audio to Inspire Production on Social Development Issues

This publication contains a collection of scripts and selected radio episodes that have been produced and distributed by ABC Ulwazi in Southern Africa. The scripts focus on social and health issues, and have been made with the recognition that local communities are the key drivers of their own development.
Each of the programmes, only partially presented, were produced with the participation of community members and with a conscious effort to ensure easy adaptation of the original English versions to local languages. They attempt to demonstrate formats that combine information and education approaches to engage public audiences in critical develoment issues.
The scripts of the three programmes included promote poverty eradication, gender equality, and the prevention of HIV/AIDS. Each programme was produced to influence social change for economic growth and stability.
Part 1: "Sizoyi Chuna" represents the 'scene' in South Africa today - thriving, determined to eradicate poverty, and pushing hard to achieve economic growth.
Part 2: "Talking Man, Talking Women" brings to its audience human rights and equality issues using, at the end of each episode, an interactive call-in session to invite public participation. The programme uses a subtle approach to highlight inequality issues that affect social development.
Part 3: "Real Children", aims to inform children and young people about HIV/AIDS prevention. Presented in a simple language and format, the episodes share knowledge on HIV transmission and care of family members during illness.
