We thank Presenter John Greene for advance information regarding this Sunday (17th May 2020) evening’s programme at 7 on C103. (S.R.)
In unprecedented times like these, inspiration from others is a helpful tool to see us through. In national and world history there are ample examples.
On Where the road takes me this Sunday evening, John Greene brings you the first of three programmes entitled ‘Inspiration from the past’.
The theme on all three is incarceration and how the incarcerated dug deep to battle unbelievable odds and in one case turn the tables on their captors.
While lockdown or self isolation for Covid-19 is definitely not incarceration, it is hoped that the mental resolve of the people in our three stories will help you to deal with any problems associated with the aforementioned.
Programme one tells of how a romance blossomed in one of the most evil places on Earth, not only blossomed, but lasted for fifty eight years afterwards.
World best selling Australian based author Heather Morris , tells us how she sat for three long and mentally draining years documenting the story of Lalley Sokolov, known as the Tattooist of Auschwitz.
Before their ‘Hollywood ending’, his romance with fellow prisoner Gita Furman must first avoid the gas chambers, disease, starvation, cold and brutality. It’s an example of Inspiration from the past at its very best.
Programme One on Where the road takes me, this Sunday evening on C103 at 7.
