Subject: introducing myself

Hello everyone

I'm sorry not to have introduced myself before. My name is Francis Rolt and
I work as a consultant on radio and peace building or conflict
transformation initiatives. I have a small company called Radio for Peace
Building ( and work for a variety of
different organisations, ranging from NGOs like Search for Common Ground and
Equal Access, to the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Currently I
have two main work strands, one is advising a Sri Lankan media organisation
called YA-TV on the development of a peace building radio soap opera. The
other involves me one week a month (actually usually more) for Search for
Common Ground on a 7 country regional project in West and Central Africa
called Radio as a Platform for Peacebuilding, which aims to improve the ways
in which governments communicate with their people and the people
communicate with their governments.

Previously I was Director of Radio at Search for Common Ground, and the
director of their Studio Ijambo in Burundi. Prior to that I worked for a
number of years as a producer/presenter with Radio Netherlands, and helped
run a radio station in South Africa as apartheid was brought down. Our remit
at Capital Radio was to create 'a radio station relevant to the new South
Africa' - unfortunately the new South Africa didn't exist at that time.

I've written or edited a number of books and 'how to' guides on radio and
peace building, in particular on talkshows and on soap operas, but also more
general texts.

With best wishes
Francis Rolt
Director, Radio for Peace Building Ltd.
