Brazil in Focus

From Sunday Morning, 11:06 am on 29 June 2014

In the latest of our occasional Countries in Focus series we take a look at Brazil. Brazil's youngest ever published author, Diego Albuquerque, and his Kiwi publisher and translator, Peter Dowling, speak to us about his book Snowy the Doganaut and the state of Brazilian children's literature; Brazilian ambassador Eduardo Gradilone recalls being a student activist in the campaign to end the military dictatorship which governed Brazil from 1964 to 1985, explains why he's studying te reo Maori, and speaks about some of his favourite places in the world's fifth largest country. Later, Brazilian musician Alda Rezende shares some of her favourite music.
