Episode 1

Kapka Kassabova explores her own family’s ties to the south-west Balkans and their history of both discord and harmony.

The term ‘Balkanise’ came into being a century ago to describe a region fragmented into smaller mutually hostile states.

Kapka Kassabova explores her own family’s ties to the south-west Balkans and their fractured history of exile, discord and harmony. A place which has at its heart two lakes of exceptional beauty and wilderness, and a gathering of many stories and voices.
