TWO interesting Latin American fact-based dramas are scheduled for radio this weekend. Tango Sensations is a play based on the kidnapping of Victoria Mendez during Argentina’s ‘Dirty War’ in 1976. Mendez was a career diplomat murdered by the regime she loyally served. Years later an Argentinian woman investigates Mendez’s murder.

Tango Sensations is broadcast on Radio 4 at 2.30pm this Saturday, 18 May. Carindiru is the story of Brazil’s most notorious jail, Estacao Carindiru.
