The theme tune to “Karhana Ow Bazgar” (Crops and The Farmer), a Pashtu-language radio soap opera set in rural Helmand Province. The programme is broadcast twice a week on Radio Tamadoon (Radio ‘Civilisation’), a local community radio station available across central Helmand in southern Afghanistan. The show has been compared to the long-running BBC Radio programme “The Archers” and the theme tune is a recognisably ‘Pashtun-ised’ version of the British original.
