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 spotlightonbrittany@aikb.fr to tell us where you are and what you enjoy about our programmes.

May’s edition of Spotlight on Brittany has a strong European flavour, and includes an interview with Ray Catlin, an expert on Europe who tells us about the issues involved in the Brexit referendum. We also meet a group of Year 10 students from Chester on an exchange visit to central Brittany, and accompany them to the workshop of local sculptor Christophe Milicent,whose larger than life-size horse sculptures you may have seen on the streets of Rostrenen. We also hear from Katell Mansec, from the Fondation Hélène et Edouard Leclerc in Landerneau, about the exhibitions there this summer.

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

Since the beginning of January 2011, Spotlight on Brittany have been presenting new half-hour programmes which are broadcast on RKB every Wednesday from 14h00 - 14h30, and Saturday from 12h00 - 12h30, and on RBG on Wednesdays from 14h00 – 14h30 and Sunday from 08h30 – 09h00.

We are currently working hard on creating some dynamic programmes. We are still recruiting volunteers to join this exciting project, so if you have some experience in this field, do get in touch.
