Talk Mogadishu: Media Under Fire


Three Canadian Somali refugees refuse to agree with the international consensus that Somalia is a 'basket case'. They return to Mogadishu and establish the HornAfrik radio and television station. It's talk shows have become a unique way for the voiceless to speak out against the violence of the warlords. HornAfrik has become a blueprint for the role of the media in conflict.

"A close and inside look at the rigors of providing balanced and sometimes controversial coverage of events in an environment where there is always some group that will take offense. A fascinating account of running a radio and television station in a dangerous city and a failed state".
