Spotlight on Brittany is a radio magazine programme brought to you by volunteers from the AIKB, which attracts listeners from both the French and English-speaking communities.

Every month we explore the traditions and culture that underpin daily life in modern Brittany.  Our themes change monthly and the programmes are broadcast every Wednesday and Saturday by Radio Kreiz Breizh and Radio Bro Gwened.

Theh programme contains items in French and in English, and to aid understanding we offer full transcripts - both in French and English - of every major item, so you can follow the written text at the same time as listening to the sound file.  Click here to be re-directed to the transcripts and texts.

Many of our listeners are outside Brittany – outside France indeed -  listening on the internet.  Please write to us at to tell us where you are and what you enjoy about our programmes.

Spotlight’s programme for 'October' covers a range of topics, so we hope you will find something of interest. First we hear about an extraordinary woman, who, during World War 2, played a vital part in aiding airmen from B17 bombers to return to their base in England, we enjoy a tour of some of the less well-known parts of Brittany's capital, Rennes and then it's play time - a visit to an amazing collection of toys!

Our current and past programmes are available via podcast. Click here to listen
