makeshift TV studioTWR Burundi recently became the centre of a group project of at least eight organizations. Since May, the radio studios of our national partner office have been transformed into a television soundstage for the production of a series to reach youth on both sides of the violence and promote peace, reconciliation and respect for human rights.

In April violent protests broke out in Bujumbura, the capital city of Burundi. Children have been unable to attend school for over a month while roadblocks and demonstrations appear frequently.

It was with great sadness that TWR heard of the passing of Dr Louis Muggleton this past weekend at the age of 92.

Dr Muggleton was a Christian engineer of considerable distinction in the field of electrical engineering. His research specialty since 1943 had been in radio wave propagation through the ionosphere as well as in antenna design, and he had earned his doctorate in this field in 1960. In the course of a distinguished career, he was credited with the production of formulas defining one of the basic parameters of the ionosphere for any required time and place.
