50/50 logoWe may have to say goodbye to 50/50 this year, which would be a real shame because it’s been on the SABC for so long it’s something of an institution. I have fond memories of the original Veld Fokus presented by Prof Kristo Pienaar and in recent years I thought it was one of the best sources of information on local environmental issues in the country. The Cape Times reported that all the programme’s staff members have been told that they will be redeployed, but it looks like the programme will carry on until its budget runs out in September. “Management has indicated the programme will continue after being outsourced to a commercial production company, but gave staff members no indication of when, how or to whom this was being done,” the report said.
