Where were you on January 14th?

Episode 7: Interference on the Airwaves

Rabeb Srairi recently became known from the series "Nouba."  In January 2011, she began working for the radio station Shems FM, then owned by Ben Ali's daughter. Soon after, she learned what journalism is really about when covering what turned out to be one of the most significant events in Tunisian contemporary history. After the January 14 demonstration, in the radio station's premises, as well as in the Carthage Palace, a transformation is taking place. Rabeb looks back on this experience which changed her view of things in multiple ways.
