Filmproduction with Ranga Yogeshwar

The German production company First Entertainment, which amongst others works for ARD and WDR in Germany, visited both Living Museums of the Ju/‘Hoansi at the beginning of June. After the pre-inspection tour in February during which the film team was quickly won over by the professionalism and friendliness of the Bushmen at Grashoek and at the “Hunter’s Museum” north of Tsumkwe, it became evident that filming would take place at both museums.

The eight day shooting, which was organised in Namibia by tour operator Bwana Tucke-Tucke and was supported and assisted by LCFN went smoothly and was an exciting and amazing experience for the actors of the Living Museums as well as the film team including the famous German host and physicist Ranga Yogeshwar.

Mainly two different features are produced: Quarks & Co in WDR and the „Show der Naturwunder“ in ARD.

For this purpose, Ranga Yogeshwar, who is hosting the show together with Frank Elstner, went on an expedition in Namibia and put himself into the lives of the traditional Ju/’Hoansi in our Living Museum.

Quarks & Co WDR

  • Broadcast date: Tuesday, 30.08.2011 from 21h00 – 21h45
  • 45-minute feature on the Living Museums of the Ju/’Hoansi in Namibia

The well-known and established Quarks & Co certainly is one of the most popular science shows in German television. Host Ranga Yogeshwar is an expert in demonstrating the most complex contexts clearly and comprehensively to his viewers. This broadcast on the Bushmen addresses the history and the origin of the traditional hunter-gatherer people and draws the connection to their present situation in the modern Namibia.  At the same time the concept of the Living Museums is introduced and questioned. Is it possible to give them a future in the modern world with this concept?  Can the Living Museum save part of their culture? More information can soon be found at Quarks & Co.
