Since 2008, the award winning drama Katha Mitho Sarangiko has tackled tough issues in Nepal, whilst entertaining listeners throughout the country.
Together with its partner magazine show, Sarangiko Bhalakusari ('Sarangi Chat') it has an audience of over three million people and is broadcast by over one hundred FM stations.
The show's production team travels throughout Nepal, working with the people they meet and giving a platform to some of the most marginalised and neglected communities in Nepal to voice their concerns.
Actors improvise using their own experiences to tell their own stories. The quality and spontaneity of the drama has led to it being known as radio cinema.
"With improvisation we audition people who are very close to the characters so it's easier for us to include people from different backgrounds. They don't have to be professional actors, they just have to be themselves." Shivani Singh Tharu, Producer, Katha Mitho Sarangiko radio drama
In 2010-2011, the programme focussed on gender issues, telling stories from the points of view of different women.
