no i want to meet shall fill those moments back home so i bounce back in 2000 and social norms and inform them about dead basic rights my name is the matter of the home and i walk into. this is did i mean use africa coming up on the program it seems like a recipe for disaster. the potential current of virus outbreak us thousands of ethiopian refugees in sudan coms are forced to share facilities also coming up. we don't as they leave the gifts is the theme that. has been for the. good believe it. or leave it all find out why this drop by an activist from south africa is on a mission to have a legacy of independence fight off and that football. is
6:31 pm
. the name is eddie michael jr you're welcome to the program after fleeing fighting if you if you are refugees now face the risk of a grown up virus outbreak in neighboring sudan nearly 50000 people from ethiopia's to grab a region of crammed into refugee camps which have not equate health care facilities . under the scorching sun they wait their turn at camps like home or cuba refugees have no option really they wait for food for cash to register with aid agencies and they also share shelter. health workers worried that raises the chances of corona virus spreading in the already strained conditions. i was going to get in the zone in between other east the problem
6:32 pm
becomes bigger because the person that comes here will go back to their camp where they live surrounded by people so they could spread it very easily. they are people who are going through a difficult time while there are young people older people also people who have chronic illnesses and other diseases affecting their immune systems add to that if cope with 19 is found here it could spread widely covered in the uk the uk that is our shot of. health care facilities are limited and there's no covert 19 testing or treatment available the refugees are themselves also concerned be afraid whatever the matter is scary when you see people together they may be infected with corona virus people sit together and do not wear masks of course it is scary you
6:33 pm
see people always move collectively without masks of course it is scary. but. with more refugees expected to arrive the already strained humanitarian services might not cope putting this safe haven at risk of its own crisis. for more on this let's talk to john the. head of mission of m.s.f. in sudan he let the exploration mission in there. first tell us has there been any confirmed case of covert 1000 in a come so far so. many cases in the camp or a response in east of sudan ever gotten. that sounds like they're pretty straightforward and good news but there's thousands of people no mosques no cubit tests a new social distancing and outbreak is more than likely isn't it indeed
6:34 pm
we are facing us of on a wave here in sudan and we know that the incidence of 19 he grew was also to some level of concern when the people are wary and it's ok so. we are lacking some test in the east of sudan and if i may cases with the race in the in the response it would be for some terrible consequences it's very complicated indeed to have any measures in place in the camps yeah definitely seems like challenging and now in such a difficult situation how are you protecting people from touching the virus so far we're staffing the clinics that we put in place in the ring our house khakis will protecting our. masks and washing points and or doing this is very measures
6:35 pm
that we all know by now and they make it's much more complicated. to do the same for the thousands of people as you mentioned. regarding that they are older. coming in boats then don't transfer being in the crowded buses and then don't crowd the shelters that are not enough. they don't have enough water yet to drink i mean so it's overseas very complicated to us who i'm asking to washington to wash their hands when they even don't have the basics that all over. and now what do these like you edgin the need to help tako the situation. i'll know what side we are on now we're trying to get more people on the ground and more drugs to see to school face the situation we are facing you put that on from the treatment of t.v. n.h.l.
6:36 pm
which is a massive messy sure and then regarding could be 19 easy in case it arise what is going to be competitive is to find appropriate isolation centers and tyson he's at the moment i think it would be over in the cup best of the house care system so that ok now the zone all that's happening in the number of people and possibly more people coming how much longer can you support the people in the comp. as a misstep we are committed to respond as long as there will be people in the camp and the transit areas which is still going see if you can for some more their organization than the rest of the i did he end of the year so for everybody the end of the financial year so it's all you see and the child resources and resources to find to mobilize. some so much resources on such a crisis in the middle of the on the the world like when they meet ok we do hope
6:37 pm
that it's definitely received soon i routed out leader john the. head of mission of a missive in sudan thank you for your time thank you. let's not take a look at some other stories making news across the continent liberians are voted on a referendum which includes a plan to shorten 1st then shorter presidents george reus critics fear he could use the change to cling to power using templates for the relative know though for a region where even presidents have used institutional changes to who don't. from a south african president jacob zuma last corruption trial has been postponed to february the ex-president faces multiple charges including throat on money laundering related to a $3000000000.00 deal in $9199.00 when he was deputy president zuma denies any

wrongdoing. for a 2nd day in a row there's been a brawl in the democratic republic of congo's parliament on tuesday at least stepped in to calm the long ages who were angry about presidents believed to see katie's move to scrap the shaky ruling coalition to secure his government is increasingly a force with m.p.'s loyal to his powerful she says up just half of us. so ever heard of this guy that's another good boy your national hero in the media he's considered a great fighter against the german colonized in the early 20th century he also served as a unifying force in bringing together various nama communities celebrated in the media but not beyond its borders this south africa right behind me wants to change that he's a descendant of the namibian independence fighter and this advocating for taking
6:39 pm
pride in one's own heritage. but. boy the title of humility assumes latest release the track is an ode to comforting hendrik with boy unama chief. boy died fighting german colonial troops in present day namibia south african rapper humid because some is a direct descendant of that voice his goal inspiring people to take pride in their ancestry. we don't have that icons and people who are on. shore. or whatever and so it's so important for people to have that to to i think a beautiful way to put it is to say that rock from which we were cut you know to to know this is who we are we can strive for. with his people here will be a some refers to the so-called colored community in post apartheid south africa the
6:40 pm
community faces economic challenges and prejudices their way of speaking the afrikaans language he says is often associated with gangsterism and poor education . they're making fun of that so that need 1st needed to be liberated and for me for about 10 years now then was all i focused on is to go into schools and say boo but i'd say well how is your how do you speak it's not a sub standard of this so what if this is so important this is one of the most important things that the big afrikaans picture needed right now is you steam must a little love because the news but then the elisabetta to see it was fun fun and listening limited because it is. empowerment and education of one's cultural identity is human besoms mission it's something his friend and to 2 artist kind of sashi can attest to. and i remember
6:41 pm
there was a term we use to get the book of enoch would boy and he win through mountains to actually just get a copy and he actually let you go to mean look at it lee actually made copies or single page. the search is reflected on the rapid skin kind of saucy it cut to the face and seal of the now my chief on to human be some arm the reason. is because there's no need to reach a you find inside africa and in that exact place said it in one of my songs i say you give me an elson. you know it's the equivalent but you'll find nothing and yet is born here in namibia hendrik of it boy is a national hero even appearing on the country's $10.00 notes but in south africa where he was born he's relatively unknown while preparing his music video himmel be a some stumbled upon a feature on his ancestor by d.w. african roots series. i like using what's out there already and
6:42 pm
why somebody didn't they i hope somebody will use it for something else so why do you want to compete with something and then i found this. which is and i contact them immediately and do days later she came back to me like whoa now i'm going to boys' everything and there's this glimmer of light so i'm so happy that all of them just said yes believe that the resulting video is a powerful tribute to him brick but boy could just be a female be a sim is proud to said that. but. now it's how you wrap up the show so which african legend would you up about now while you think about about you would more music celebrate in the maybe an independence fight and they'd fit boy see you soon right for now. be done as the lead. is the mean it. isn't for you
6:43 pm

6:44 pm
culture. for you are not of a little another yet you want to become a citizen. in for migrants your platform for reliable information. i am an award winning entertainer julie gonzalez may not be a guy you'd expect to put out a christmas album but i mean you're 2020 he could be just the right person for the job. i'll be talking with charlie about has a rather melancholy christmas album a very chilly christmas coming up on arts and culture and later on the show. some call it the comedy of the year another round the danish movie about danger entering
6:45 pm
and the male midlife crisis we're here from our film expert. first canadian musician jason back aka chilly gonzales felt that this year christmas needed a different soundtrack west cheerful less commercial so he got to work putting together his own album for the holidays a record that sounds more like christmas 2020 most of the songs are familiar but the sound is more intimate at times dissonant even a long way. a very chilly christmas. the album opens with a dramatic rendition of silent night one thing is clear this isn't going to be your usual christmas album. and why should you think it's not a normal christmas this year and chilly gonzales isn't
6:46 pm
a normal musician. from classical to jazz to hip hop for decades he's made them all his own. take you probably. think we'll. take. that came to a good thing because it made me think of the past the big change. now he's giving classic christmas carols such as jingle bells some minor key changes. the album also features collaboration's with the singers jarvis cocker and leslie fice. here to tell us more chilli gonzales who welcome to arts and culture one really fascinating thing about this album is actually your own relationship with christmas you grew up in
6:47 pm
a secular jewish family you've said that you actually don't even like christmas so how did you end up making a christmas album. well i don't like what christmas has become which is you know when it went to a secular jewish family celebrates christmas it's not to convert to christianity it's to assimilate to you know as i say it's not jesus it's santa claus it's about gift giving it's about consumerism and about capitalism and you know my only way into christmas as a kid was at the piano to lead a sing along and then i could believe in it and that's why i made this album as a kind of get back to that very intimate way recorded here at home on my upright piano with my musical family jarvis cocker and feist because i feel that's missing i feel those songs have become corrupted by their use and you know soundtracks for commercials and cynical entertainers cashing in year after year i want to try to
6:48 pm
provide a bit of an end to dote on that but i've always had mixed feelings at christmas because of the gap between a kind of dream that we're sold and what reality is so i made this christmas album for those like me i want to say i don't like christmas but i have very a cocktail complex emotions that say what i want to my albums are ok so let's talk about the songs themselves a lot of christmas classics that people will recognize what what is special about these songs for you why did you want to record them. well the carrolls on one side which is the bulk of my album they're full cusick that means that it comes from a time before the culture of the individual it's when music really had a social role to play that's why the songs tend to be very easy for kids or you know drunk people to sing along with they usually are based on scales like the 1st no well. you can hear it just like a staircase going up or joints of the world is famously just
6:49 pm
a descending scale. that's inclusive christmas music then fast forward so you know the eighty's and ninety's i want to make sure i had some modern christmas classics under as well last christmas by wham and all i want for christmas is you by mariah carey but as you'll see physically how my handle is all over the keyboard this is a virtual 6 on and a drunk person just can't keep up with this even if they sing into their beer bottle as a fake microphone just watch how different is it. wants . to geno's. on stuff that's not saying about for most of us certainly not for me. well there you go so i needed to take those pop songs in a way turn them into carols and you take mariah as strident hairdryer of a voice and sort of remove it or i want for christmas so that you can sort of get
6:50 pm
a clear shot of what the musical material is the play last christmas on the piano very simply. you don't have the synthesizers the drum machine or the apparatus keys what is that they're wearing in this video where they're having a snowball fight all of that is gone and you're left with just right hand melody left hand harmony and in a way i tried to take the individual out of those pop songs and turn them into those kind of selfless carols christmas carols don't have the word i and the and that's what i think is so fascinating we've lost a lot of that because our music now is much more about the glorification of the artist but by playing things on a piano you can sort of divorce or a sort of you know you know surgically remove the personality of george michael or the towering persona of mariah carey and the songs can maybe be you know considered folk music modern day folk music in that setting right chili gonzalez you really turned mariah carey in syria almost a solemn christmas song that people can enjoy at home maybe by themselves the
6:51 pm
theory is that it's a very different christmas for a lot of people thanks so much for coming on arts and culture thanks for having me . and a few headlines now the mystery is growing around a series of unexplained metal monoliths that have appeared in several countries now with no explanation hikers found the latest one in a dutch nature reserve and park rangers don't know how it got there so miller's structures have already appeared in the u.k. and romania where this 4 meter monolith appeared and a few days later disappeared but phenomenon started late last month in the united states where the 1st of these sculptures appeared in the desert in utah before it was also mysteriously removed. how about a date with the mona lisa the louvre museum in paris is auction off the chance to see her famous 500 year old smile up close during the paintings annual check up the
6:52 pm
museums trying to raise funds after shutting again due to the coronavirus the movie expects this year's revenue losses to total as much as $90000000.00 euros. while the front runner at this year's european film award is a midlife crisis comedy from denmark another round by director thomas vinterberg the movie starts with a potentially dangerous philosophical premise one that the characters a group of bored high school teachers decide to put into practice here's the scene he defeated in the last few self officiated scold to leave which of them are not so vital to me that they ask for those dipping. them a good night he says and. the food meant him for me to feel it's. ok and did a mind to send. in any. and
6:53 pm
he leaves pleasure to me as it comes across that hard day i put it ahead of the for me let me add this comes up like. yeah. and paphitis pull that no man has been doesn't need headed when we need to and so i do get letters from p.s. need me i'll slap with this and it may have caught them and she caters to. me i'm only submit me. to dover you so my experts got rock springs here with me now ok so we just watched the setup of the film for teachers trying to start decide to try a day drinking in order to revitalize their lives kind of how does that go yeah initially it works out great these start they start well why do you keep your day. and they're using breathalyzers to check to see what they were blood alcohol level is so they can keep it at a constant level and so initially as i say they start start doing this they have
6:54 pm
rules they're only drinking during the day and it goes great there they come better teachers they become more engaged they search really enjoy life. again and they think well this is working out really well so being a little bit drunk feels good what used to drive a lot drunk and and then the movie progressed from there wow ok so am i to understand that this is a pro alcoholism film no definitely not i mean this stems from thomas he's known for socially critical dramas this is a comedy but he knows how to go dark and so we do see as they start to drink to excess we do see things start to get ugly we see how excessive alcohol can can you know ruin relationships can can ruin lives so we see all that and in the film but really despite the premise of the movie this isn't really a movie about alcohol it's actually more boat i don't philosophy of life i talk to thomas than to the director and he said that. he feels that everything that's worth
6:55 pm
experiencing in life whether it's with great art or even falling in love is all about giving up control and embracing the good and the bad in life and he himself is a father of 3 kids and he said he worries that young people today like the school kids in this film there are too worried about not giving up control their they have they have great anxiety or they have to get good grades like a good job if they don't get a good job to fall behind and so forth and so on so they think that they're really worried about taking the risk of giving up control is in the missing out so much in life by not giving up control and so being drunk in this film is more a metaphor for for giving up control and embracing the good in the bad the sort of the risky business of life itself where it's really notable. this film is coming out now when we're all trying to control ourselves so much with the pandemic and doing things right yeah it's actually i think it's really really interesting is right now we are so cold we have to be you know we you know can't can barely go out
6:56 pm
if we go you have to wear a mask you have to keep distance we're under so much control right now and so i seen this movie really shows us what we're missing and i think all of us you know when this pandemic ends we just want to be able to do this again to you know embrace life to get it and give up control with with without alcohol but until then we do have this movie ok so this movie had time for losing control when we can't lose control scott roxboro thanks so much and that's almost it for this edition of arts and culture scott and i will leave you now though with the latest work by italian artist and former farmer daddio gumba team or used his tractor to plow a portrait of composer fun beethoven or 250 years ago this month thanks for watching.

. the moment britain rolls out the biggest nationwide vaccine program and its history a 90 year old woman got the 1st dose but the vaccine swift approval by british regulators and some people has it sent the next challenge will be ensuring its reaches those who need it the most also coming up calls are growing for a heart a log down here in germany and fast the country's top scientists say tighter restrictions are now urgent as a foreigner virus case not 1st remain stubbornly high class
7:01 pm
a showdown in india angry farmers staging a nationwide strike is their standoff with modis government intensifies small scale farmers fear new agricultural laws will make them vulnerable to corporations that will slash prices and cut their already modest earnings. thank you so much for your company everyone in the united kingdom has started the enormous task of inoculating his general population with a fully tested and approved covert 1000 vaccine the 2 dose vaccine was fast tracked by a german company ion tac in partnership with the us pharmaceutical giant pfizer the u.k. faces some public worry over safety given how fast the treatment came to market but the government couldn't have asked for a better influence or to get the 1st. it took just
7:02 pm
a 2nd but it was a moment that offered hope to the world the 1st passion to receive an independently reviewed covert 19 vaccine. and 90 year old grandmother margaret keenan had a message for others. i say pull for rupert because it is free and it's the best thing the 2nd happens. in london so this is all for it. she was followed by william shakespeare of warrick no relation but pleased perhaps to work his way into history. of the. great. the british prime minister here with the start of the u.k.'s mass vaccination program but he warned against complacency. he called of food to relax not and so one message would be it's amazing to see the vaccine comments
7:03 pm
amazing to see this tremendous shot in the arm for the entire nation but we can't afford to relax in. the u.k. he has ordered enough of the by ontic vaccine to inoculate 20000000 people with millions of rival shots also expected officials say vaccinating the population will take months but they will have to contend with vaccine skepticism risk is what the long term effects broke ranks i would take it there is a benefits outweigh the risks seems sensible thing to do yet and it's the only way we're going to add to the pandemic i would say. of the chance of seeing here. is our chip where every test you take a year 2000 facebook health experts are rajin the government to actively tackle misinformation it is extremely important are these people get the vaccine so we
7:04 pm
need to. find a way how to communicate it to them and how to in a way isolate them from these dominating examples of misinformation that they sing on social media. as margaret keenan returned to her ward she did so to a wall of applause for celebration of humanity's triumph in this bleakest of years . well meanwhile germany is considering tougher a lockdown measures to curb the number of corona virus infections the eastern state of saxony which has especially high case numbers has become the latest states who voluntarily expand its lockdown closing schools and most businesses one of germany's leading health institutes the leo poll dana says the government should consider a 2 week hard long down nationwide starting on december 24th this would include a ban on travel or gatherings over christmas and then extend an extension of school holidays until january 10th. all right and i like to turn now to professor ralph
7:05 pm
for heritage he is one of the co-authors of the statement and a psychologist at the max planck institute in berlin professor so good to have you with us if you are making the case for a hard lockdown explain why a complete lockdown is inevitable in your view. well 1st of all thank you for having me i don't think it's inevitable but it is a necessary choice that we have that we need to make as a society and also as a political decision makers the reasons are very obvious the reasons are that we are having a relatively high number of sexual it's we have every day many 100 not many but hundreds of people dying and also we have hospital and medical system that is really pushed to its limits and now we are entering the holiday season and of
7:06 pm
course in the holiday seasons we tend to behave in a way that is unfortunately very crude duces to the spread of the virus. up what would you prefer to see happen now. what i would prefer is indeed what we recommend in the statement by the you do you know which is the heart knocked over the holiday and the way we describe it is be described as a 2 step process a process that already starts on december 14th in which we basically recommend people to start working a total home office and also to list the all to be sure to attend school so that parents can actually decide to keep their children a told and also start a digital education as much as possible that would be the 1st and the 2nd stuff starts on december 24th 2 mightily it's all just when you start 10 days earlier because in the 24th you may need. the family members whom you haven't seen in quite
7:07 pm
some time and of course at that point you want to make sure that you are not spreading the virus or that you don't have to sometimes and on december 24th what we all recommend you start all the stores that are not absolutely necessary such as pharmacies and food stores being closed and that we have a relative art don't until january 10th. now join has been so hard to come by this year is it not too onerous to ask people to work less not celebrate holidays with their loved ones to protect them. yeah you can you're totally right of course it is. them to do that but let me point 02 things 1st it is still possible that you really spend the holidays with the closest member of your family so with their real loved ones in blue we should be a very intimate celebration also you can reduce the risk if you do what we
7:08 pm
recommend you start the 1st phase of self karma caught yourself on december 14th so that you can be quite certain that you're not symptomatic by the time you meet your closest family members and very importantly the current at the time of their knocked out is meant to be short it's hard and short but it also gives us a perspective for the months to come and also for returning to a more normal life afterwards and right away there are good reasons to assume that for instance if you compared a situation in germany to other countries such as the bill shoot or i went through such a quick grade and very hard to go down in their numbers much much better than once in germany so are you are you seeing this as a circuit breaker is that what i understand from your ass or is this more a circuit breaker. it is meant to be a circuit breaker but think about it it's a holiday season that is at the one time one that presents enormous wrists but
7:09 pm
interestingly it also presents us with an enormous chance because ultimately during the holiday season. life has been too subtle rated all over shops are closed public places are closed so our 8 years. such a circuit breaker or a part of their own is necessary then that students through a time in which we throw our culture any and all are staying at home. shops are closed and so on and so on so many the idea is that we really seize the opportunity and make use of the chance of a hole if you think you can. professor. of germany's layout poll dana academy of sciences sir thank you for coming on. because the danish. let's take a look now at some of the other stories making news around the world. the u.k. has agreed to a draw draft clauses in bragg's that legislation that would have broken
