BBC Media Action is working with UNICEF, Bangladesh Betar, Radio Naf and the CXB Communication with Communities Working Group to help provide lifesaving information to Rohingya and host communities across Cox's Bazar. Radio programmes are broadcast by both stations as follows:

  • Bangladesh Betar (100.8 FM and 1314 AM)
    • Beggunor Lai (magazine programme) - Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays at 3:35pm
    • Live phone in - Thursdays at 3:35pm
  • Radio Naf (99.2 FM)
    • Beggunor Lai (magazine programme) - Saturdays, Mondays and Wednesdays at 10am
    • Shishur Hashi - Sundays and Tuesdays at 10am

Each week, the highlights of the programmes are put together into a podcast-style format, designed for use in listening groups, community spaces, childrens' centres and anywhere else where community members gather together. Each week covers a different theme; with a new programme usually released every Tuesday. The download includes an MP3 audio file (containing the radio content) as well as a topic-specific discussion guide to help community workers and group facilitators lead discussions, after their group has listened to the programme. Where relevant, additional materials on the week's topic are also included, in case these are useful to facilitators.

Anyone using the materials is encouraged to submit a brief report about the number of community members who were engaged as well as any key issues or questions raised by the listeners. A form is included for that purpose in each week's discussion guide - and should be returned to CXBfeedback@bd.bbcmediaaction.org

Please note that these materials are likely to go out-of-date over time. The archive is maintained as a useful resource, but agencies are encouraged to double-check the advice and information in older programmes is accurate, before making use of them in field activities.
