CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., March 29, 2006 — Southeast Public Radio has announced plans to air “Worlds of Difference,” a radio documentary that explores the impact of global change on local cultures worldwide. The series will air Sunday mornings at 9 a.m., following National Public Radio’s (NPR) “Weekend Edition” beginning April 2.

Hosted by award-winning journalist Maria Hinojosa, the six hour-long specials each address a major theme (the relationship between culture and place, culture and language, culture and power, culture and markets, culture and religious belief, and the challenge of diversity in multicultural societies) and contain pieces previously heard on “Morning Edition,” “All Things Considered” and “Living on Earth.”

The stories include intimate, sound-rich documentary features that bring listeners into the homes and communities of people facing critical decisions about their changing ways of life.

“Worlds of Difference” is a project of Homelands Productions, an independent, non-profit media cooperative that has been producing award-winning radio documentaries since the 1980s. The project’s executive producer is Jon Miller.
