Every now and then I like to listen to the morning news program on Radio 1, the Dutch public 'news and sports station', as their slogan goes. The one thing that never fails to amaze me is their 'human interest' block, which they use to fill at least a quarter of the available time. This morning, in the midst of Syria, Korea and the European Championships, they first brought a five-minute item on the dangerous live of a cab driver in New York. Even worse was the second part, half an hour later, which is part of a three-week Euro 2000 series in which they interview the owners and visitors of a certain bar in the Hague, Café Corry (I think that was the name). Today, half the item dealt with a mouse which had been sighted in the bar. A mouse. The only Dutch national news radio actually spent two minutes worrying about a mouse in Café Corry. How much lower can we still go?
