Danube: Against the Flow

Passion Distribution
8 x 60’

The Danube River is central to the idea of Europe. It flows through a continent of communities often struggling with illness, war, climate change, but also all the fruits of peace. In this series, journalist Nick Thorpe portrays the Danube and its peoples in all their glory, good humour, and hard labour.

Europe faces many challenges today from the immediate hardships caused by the pandemic, to longer term issues like Britain leaving the EU and the big questions of the continent’s future.

Nick Thorpe, the BBC’s Central and Eastern Europe correspondent, has lived in Budapest since 1986 and has written extensively on this area. He starts his journey in Romania by the Black Sea and travels upriver passing through Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia, Hungary, Slovakia, Austria and ending up in Germany’s Black Forest.
