On 12 June the 2014 FIFA World Cup kicks off in Brazil. On 5 May, Dutch talk show hosts Pauw & Witteman had a look at what we might expect to see. Their special guests were Nanko van Buuren (who works in Brazil’s slums), Marjon van Royen (a Dutch correspondent in Brazil), Barbara Baarsma (an economist), Frits Barend (a journalist and football fan) and the Brazilian singer Lilian Vieira.
The TV programme’s opening tune was played in a special samba version, and during live music played at the end of the broadcast the dancing girls and capoeira dancers of Batucando put on an energetic show.
