FOCUS ON FERREIRASTOWN AND GERALD GARNER. Gerald Garner is the publisher and author of Spaces & Places series of books – including JoburgPlaces and SantonPlaces as well as Johannesburg Ten Ahead. A landscape architect, writer and specialist in the Inner City, he also conducts heritage and sight-seeing tours of the City – either focussing on Johannesburg’s role in the struggle against apartheid or on inner-city regeneration. Today we focus on Ferreirastown , where a huge amount of redevelopment is taking place. One of these is the transformation of an abandoned industrial site between Fox and Main Streets, some of which has been rented out to motor mechanics and panel beaters for years, while others have just been empty. The plan is to transform these into a food and design emporium – not to mention a wine bar showcasing South African wines. Join Den Adams from the Johannesburg Heritage Foundation and Gerald Garner from JoburgPlaces as they discuss the redevelopment of Ferreirastown.

War to end all Wars. On the 7th August 100 years ago war was declared between England and Germany and these hostilities were to continue until 1918. It became known as the ‘War to end all Wars’ resulting in millions of deaths involving people from many nations. We were privileged to be able to interview Hamish Patterson from the Ditsong National Museum of Military History in Saxonwold who will be talking about the War itself and the many war memorabilia which are planned to be on display. Join Den Adams from the Johannesburg Heritage Foundation and Hamish from the Ditsong National Museum of Military History as they discuss the War to end all Wars.

JOBURG’S FIERY WOMEN. The dirty, dusty mining town of Johannesburg was not an environment where women were expected to thrive, but from its very founding they have taken centre stage. To celebrate Women's Day Joburg Heritage are leading an inner-city tour themed around the contribution of famous Joburg women, ranging from the notorious to the heroic. Learn about the shocking exploitation of prostitutes in the early mining years, the fiery rhetoric of mining strike leader Mary Fitzgerald, the black sash movement and other brave anti-apartheid activists. Join Monique Jefferson and Brett McDougall of the Johannesburg Heritage Foundation as they discuss their Women’s Day tour honouring the contribution of women to the making and shaping of Johannesburg.

WORLD WAR I CENTENARY AND THE NATIONAL ANTIQUES FAIRE The centenary of World War I and the 70th anniversary of D-Day have put the spotlight on commemorating those wars and all the others, both past and present, that have impacted on the world in one way or another. The National Antiques and Decorative Arts Faire takes place at the Sandton Convention Centre later this week and will have, for the first time, a Military Pavilion showcasing specialist military dealers. Wars have always held a special fascination and the collecting of war memorabilia is an ever-growing passion for collectors. William Endley, one of the largest collectors of militaria in the country, and Clyde Terry, organiser of the Antiques Faire, will be talking to Den Adams about the Faire, the War and collecting. You will also hear about the patriotic Winston Churchill bulldog!
