On the African Learning Channel, genuine listener interaction is key to bringing the message home. The ALC, a project of the World Space Foundation, makes collective use of one of the digital broadcast channels of the World Space satellite networks (see Spore 76, page 16). The channel combines radio material from NGOs and other bodies such as Panos, Radio Bridges of Zimbabwe and ALIN, on such issues as health, microenterprise and agricultural production. CTA provides programme material from its Rural Radio packs. At present, ALC has an audience of almost one million, through digital radio receivers located in 17 African countries. At a meeting of ALC partners in Addis Ababa in April 2000, plans were made for expanding the network of receivers which, in addition to audio broadcasts, can be used for delivering multimedia information to users in remote areas or with poor communications. Among the agricultural services already available is the Climate Information Channel, with up-to-date meteorological data.
