Our next series, ‘The Wall in the Mind’ is coming to Newstalk this April. Claire O’Hanlon, a young Irish woman, became caught up in the events sweeping East Berlin, just prior to the fall of the Berlin wall. Arrested at a pro-democracy protest, Claire and her friends were imprisoned by the East German secret police. Twenty-five years later, now a successful academic, Claire returns to Berlin. She attempts to finally heal, and to resolve the mystery of what happened to her first love, Emil, who disappeared in 1989.

Broadcast Dates: 16th, 23rd, and 30th of April, two episodes at a time, at 7am and then repeat at 10pm same day.
