It also looks at general elections-related violence in Jamaica and measures by the leaders of the two major political leaders to curb such violence.

dc.description.tableofcontents 2. Rumours have been circulating in Guyana that the government intends to import toxic waste into the country. Jerry Timmins interviews Winston King, Executive Chairman of Guyana’s Natural Resources Agency to find out if there is any basis to the rumours. Mr. King has been consulting with two American companies who have proposed shipping industrial waste into Guyana, the intent being that the waste would be burned to produce power. King hastens to add however, that the project will not be approved till the government of Guyana is satisfied about a number of things, including 1. That what is being brought in is not toxic waste as defined by the Environmental Protection Agency of the United States, 2.That what comes in is primarily in liquid form and 3. That the environmental impact is not injurious to the health of the population of the health of the flora and fauna. (00:29 -04:06) en_US
dc.description.tableofcontents 3. The annual convention of the Jamaica Labour Party was marred when a busload of JLP supporters went on a rampage through a shanty town traditionally loyal to the opposition People’s National Party. The action resulted in the death of one man and the wounding of six others. This violence has occurred in the run up to general elections in Jamaica. BBC’s Caribbean correspondent Alan Tomlinson takes a critical look at the prospects for a peaceful campaign when the elections are called. He interviews the PNP’s Claude Clarke, who comments on the peace initiatives being taken to curb violence between the two main parties involved in the elections. (04:08-07:19) en_US
dc.description.tableofcontents 4. Trinidadian actor /playwright Errol John dies in London at the age of 64. The actor was well known for his most famous play ”Moon on a Rainbow Shawl”. Jerry Timmins interviews John’s friend and fellow Trinidadian Rudolph Walker, who comments on John’s love for his homeland of Trinidad and his sense of fulfillment in his career. Walker remembers John as a shy, generous person whose full potential was not realized although he was a very talented actor and playwright. (07:27-10:27) en_US
dc.description.tableofcontents 5. A new company launched in Britain called Olympic Gold Financial Services targets the growing number of highly paid sportsmen in Britain. Jerry Timmins interviews Mel Goldberg, the man behind Olympic Gold, who notes that there are many unqualified agents going around pretending to be experts in their field and are profiting off young inexperienced sportsmen via trickery. A typical example, Goldberg notes, is the practice of presenting young athletes with a car as an incentive. However, the car is not paid for but is a rental, and not a gift. The athlete after signing a contract is left to pay for the car, and in fact has also signed away a percentage of his earnings for a specific period. Goldberg’s company looks after the interest of the young players, by ensuring that they receive their maximum earnings, and also by providing sound financial advice. (11:34-14:19) en_US
