Stories we’re following the week beginning April 25:
Switzerland’s canton Ticino was effected by the radioactive cloud that swept across Europe 30 years ago in the aftermath of the Chernobyl disaster. We look at the very real health scare and hear from the man whose job it was to stop people from panicking.
Can music help premature babies? We look at how the human voice and certain musical instruments are being used to help premature infants feel more comfortable.
Taxation without representation? In our regular reporting on democracy issues, we listen in on a debate about whether the 25% of Switzerland’s population who are not Swiss nationals should be given voting rights.
We talk to the ad designer who controversially turned the Swiss cross into a swastika and learn why he thinks there are no boundaries in political advertising campaigns.
At Credit Suisse’s annual general meeting, shareholders will voice their opinion on the CHF14.3 million share package awarded to new CEO Tidjane Thiam to compensate for loss of bonuses he would have received from his old company Prudential. The Swiss National Bank will also answer to shareholders a day after producing interim first quarter results. Shareholders have seen their dividend drastically cut in recent years.
