Making a radio documentary in Nepal

From The Weekend, 11:40 am on 19 January 2020

Since visiting the Nepal in August for RNZ, Lynn Freeman has been reflecting on an eventful and sometimes stressful three weeks in this remarkable country. 

So having got most of the documentaries to air now she decided to make a programme about what went into gathering dozens of interviews in the far north and west and in the deep south of Nepal.  Many many hours on the road, several canoe trips across rivers frequented by crocodiles, and far too many leech bites.
