Feuilleton, hr2-kultur DER TAG

Mock-up gallows at a Dresden Pegida demonstration. Refugees defamed as “cattle” and “filthy pack”. Angela Merkel denounced as “Betrayer of the Nation”. Right-wing rhetoric is intellectual arson, is incitement and hatred against everything foreign. As a single-themed background programme, DER TAG analyzes current developments, widens the viewing angle and offers a variety of new perspectives, arguments and approaches. With reports and high-profile discussion partners live from the day.

Excerpt from the jury’s statement
Confident, fast-paced, dramatically top class – with the conventional instruments of radio. Great authors, presenters and editors.
