About C’est la vie ! radio drama
Produced by Sebegal based organization RAES in French and in vernacular languages (Bambara, Hausa, Wolof), the radio drama C’est la vie ! is an adaptation of seasons 1 and 2 of the television series and forms a key component of the C’est La Vie (CLV )campaign. Combining tradition and modernity, it takes up the codes of an ancestral tradition of West Africa – storytelling and orality – to reach populations up to the “last mile”.
C’est la vie radio drama immerses listeners in the sound universe of the Ratanga health center where the evolution of the characters, over the episodes, promotes awareness on issues related to sexuality, maternity or gender based violence. No heavy sermons here but passionating stories that give food for thought and characters that lead listeners in their wake.
Adapted to international broadcasting standards, C’est la vie ! is broadcast both on Radio France Internationale (5 million listeners per episode) and on community radios.
