"Islamist group Boko Haram gave them three days to leave whereas And Boko Haram is not just targeting Christians In fact in the case of Boko Haram the show not only gave what was for me and what needed background information to understand the phenomenon in the religious and social context of Nigeria it also brought me up to date with subsequent events involving key characters This is very valuable public service broadcasting Hello over to you This is Caroline in Tatum shala northern India Being listening to the explanation for a couple of months now and I really appreciate the way that the explanation delves into conflicts that are in the very often in the headlines but the origins of which can be rather obscure in recently I learned a great deal about North Korea West Africa Taiwan hello over to you It's castrates It's more like an in depth from our own correspondent from me because the people who are reporting are giving reflections on the place they actually live in and sometimes as listeners we forget that they're not just dropped in So the stories that they are telling they have a deeper understanding of but it's a really interesting program And as always it covers loads of different subjects Well I'm joined on the line now from Belfast by the show's presenter Claire Graham Tell me first of all how did the explanation the program come about It's quite simple really The team wanted a space for people to get a better understanding of some of those big geopolitical issues We just heard them from some of the listeners there Long-standing issues or even terror groups We wanted to provide the background to the whole story if you like so when the story appears in the news that day and you hear the headline or you hear the latest line in a story there's the whole story for you the background And we have this wealth of audio and archive within the BBC that can really help us understand the present situations better Do you think Claire that it kind of exposes a limitation in normal news coverage Yes most news editors or editors of the big daily news strands will save their programs do provide context and an explanation But do you think in a sense the need for this shows that there is a gap I think when our reporters and correspondents come on air and they deliver the back line they do so to provide the balance and the context for the listener to respond to what they're seeing there and then this in a way gives the listener an opportunity to go that step further So it's not that we're limited in our reporting because our correspondence to a brilliantly and are able to condense down information into very short pieces or slightly longer pieces but it's the fact they can go beyond the reports that they're seeing in front of them However what we do is just provide an opportunity for the listener to take one step further for themselves Now listen to kaz says that she thinks there's an element from her own correspondent about the program Do you understand what she's talking about First of all why we use our correspondence to illustrate these stories is because they have this incredible wealth of knowledge and expertise on these topics Our experience with recording these is at the correspondent has really enjoyed the time that they have spent with us sharing that immersive knowledge and remembering that they are living and breathing these stories because they are physically there But what we do slightly differently is that we don't take a story and look at it there and there so a reactive piece to an election results or the immediate reaction to an event we have something that stays there on the shelf and can be picked up and listened to again in different contexts and as different events on fold So in a way you've always got that background piece that will keep you on track as things develop in the present tense Claire Graham thank you very much indeed for joining us Now a frequent topic in the over to you inbox is about what constitutes a story that merits being included in a news program And on top of that what dictates whether it justifies top billing Well there's been a very good example of this in the past week Oh.
