Anyone up for one more piece on Andrzej Wajda

I posted about Radio Poland's retrospective piece on Polish director Andrzej Wajda, who died last Sunday aged 90. However, it turns out that when he was preparing to make Katyn, he did an interview with Radio Slovakia, and Radio Slovakia International's English Section ran that on their program on Thursday. The interview is in translation, since Wajda gave it in Polish; I have no idea what if any other languages he spoke.

Unfortunately, Radio Slovakia only has full-length programs available for downloading or listening live, not individual features within the programs. Thursday's program is available for listening live here; I don't know how long their programs are available for listening. If you want to download and listen to the whole program at your convience, you'd click on the Stiahnuť audio súbor link below the media player. That's a ~12.8 MB MP3 file running just about 27 minutes; the Wajda interview comes third after the news and a memorial to the country's recently-deceased first president. (Slovakia, you may recall, only became an independent country in 1993.)

And if you're interested in listening to them on a regular basis, they have an RSS feed for their program here and more information about other ways to listen here.
