As Ollia wrote about the cinematographer: "The Blue Caftan is a sensual film where facial expressions and gestures weigh as much as words. Scenes take place mostly indoors, filmed in close-up, with tender attention to detail.” In addition to the quiz question, there was the bonus question: “Which city or country that you have visited is your favorite, and why?” The bonus question this week was suggested by Saleem Akhtar Chadhar, the president of the RFI Seven Stars Radio Listeners Club in District Chiniot, Pakistan.

You must ask to join the group, and you must furnish your RFI Listeners Club membership number. I’ll approve you, and off you go! This week’s quiz: On 3 December, I asked you a question about the environment. Earlier that week, the French government announced that a coal-fired power plant would be re-booted to get the country through the winter. There were worries that the electricity supply here would not be able to keep up with demand over the winter – due to the conflict in Ukraine, and maintenance problems with some nuclear plants. France relies on nuclear for about 70 percent of its electricity. You were to re-read our article “France reboots coal-fired power plant to boost winter electricity supplies” and answer this question: how many nuclear reactors are there in France?  The answer is: 56. However, as you read in our article, around two dozen of those reactors have been offline for months, mostly due to fears over micro-cracks discovered in the emergency cooling systems. Aside from the coal plant that will be kept active until the end of March, there is only one other coal-fired power station still open in France. In addition to the quiz question, there was the bonus question: “What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?” The winners are: RFI English listener Khondaker Rafiqul Islam, who’s the president of the Source of Knowledge Club in Naogaon, Bangladesh. Khondaker is also the winner of this week’s bonus question.   Khondaker Rafiqul Islam said the best advice he ever had was from his mother. This is what he wrote: “She was a very pious woman, and she lived very simply. I was only nine years old when she told me: ‘always speak the truth, never quarrel with others, spend your time working, reading, and writing, and build your life independently.’ “I think,” Khondaker continued, “Everybody can follow her simple advice, and prosper.”  Congratulations Khondakar! Also on the list of lucky winners this week are Sakirun Islam Mitu, who’s a member of the RFI Amour Fan Club in Rajshahi, Bangladesh; Faheem Noor, the president of the RFI World United Listeners Organization in Nankana Sahib, Pakistan; RFI Listeners Club member Vladimir Gudzenko from Lukhovitsy, Russia, and RFI English listener Momotaz Parvin Naju from Bogura, Bangladesh. Congratulations winners! Here’s the music you heard on this week’s program: “The Tortoise” from Carnival of the Animals by Camille Saint-Saëns, performed by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra conducted by Andre Previn; “Autumn Leaves” by Joseph Kosma and Jacques Prévert, performed by the Bill Evans Trio; “The Flight of the Bumblebee” by Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov; “The Cakewalk” from Children’s Corner by Claude Debussy, performed by the composer, and “Bluesette” by Toots Thieleman, performed by the composer and his ensemble. Do you have a musical request? Send it to [email protected]  This week’s question ... you must listen to the show to participate. After you’ve listened to the show, re-read Michael Fitzpatrick’s article “France tightens hunting regulations but stops short of weekend ban” to help you with the answer.  You have until 6 February 2023 to enter this week's quiz; the winners will be announced on the 11 February podcast. When you enter, be sure you send your postal address with your answer, and if you have one, your RFI Listeners Club membership number.

Everyone can look at it, but only members of the group can post on it. If you haven’t yet asked to join the group, and you are a member of an independent, officially recognized RFI English club, go to the Facebook link above, and fill out the questionnaire !!!!! (if you do not answer the questions, I click “decline”). There’s a Facebook page for members of the general RFI Listeners Club too. Just click on the link and fill out the questionnaire, and you can connect with your fellow Club members around the world. Be sure you include your RFI Listeners Club membership number (most of them begin with an A, followed by a number) in the questionnaire, or I will have to click “Decline”, which I don’t like to do! This week’s quiz: On 19 November, I asked you a question about the mascot for the 2024 Paris Olympic Games. The committee had just announced their decision, which is a … hat. A stuffed animal hat. A toy hat. But not just any hat, a very important hat to the French, a hat which to them embodies French democratic values. It’s called a Phrygian cap and was the cap the women wore when they marched to Versailles calling for a reduction in the price of bread … pretty much the beginning of the French Revolution, as you know. You were to re-read our article “Made-in-China 'Phryges' toys are surprise mascots for Paris Olympics 2024”, and send in the answer to this question: how many of the Phryges toys do the Paris 2024 organizers hope to sell by the start of the games?   The answer is: Two million   In addition to the quiz question, there was the bonus question: “When in your life were you a leader?” The winners are: RFI Listeners Club member Kashif Khalil from Faisalabad, Pakistan, who is also the winner of this week’s bonus question. Today’s winners also include Ferhat Bezazel, the president of the RFI Butterflies Club Ain Kechera in West Skikda, Algeria; Uzma Khan, who’s a member of the Naz RFI & Internet Fan Club in Faisal Abad, Pakistan, and RFI Listeners Club member Kristopher Arens from Oregon in the US.  Last but not least, there’s RFI English listener Mrs. Boby Khanam, who’s a member of the Friends Radio Club in Naogaon, Bangladesh Congratulations winners!
