You know that saying about how the pictures are always better on the radio ? Well, you might want to know about Spore s big sister on the radio, a sort of Spore-of-the- airwaves, the Rural Radio Resource Packs (RRRP) programme which is now entering its second decade of service. Each year, four packs of programme materials are produced for rural radio stations by WRENmedia for CTA; in 2000, the packs were used by about 250 radio stations. Each pack is on a selected theme and contains several short recordings of interviews and sound items on broadcast quality tape, plus a full text transcript, technical information, cue sheets for broadcasters, and background information such as Spore articles and CTA publications. Most interviews are made with journalists and experts from ACP countries. The RRRPs are distributed by CTA to rural radio stations on request. They are not available through the PDS subscription system with credit points. The programme materials are also publicly available as sound files on the Internet (www.agricta.org), and they can be downloaded for rebroadcast. In 2001, topics to be covered include water rights, credit, farmers organisations and land and agricultural reform.
