On Saturday 25 September, the BBC World Service will broadcast a documentary, produced by Bairbre Flood, and featuring Noo Saro-Wiwa, which is based on the death-row correspondence of Nigerian writer and activist Ken Saro-Wiwa.

The archive was donated to Maynooth University by Sister Majella McCarron (OLA). The correspondence, poems by Ken Saro-Wiwa and contextual essays, were published as Silence Would be Treason: Last Writings of Ken Saro-Wiwa, by Daraja Press and edited by Ide Corley, Department of English, Helen Fallon, Library  and Laurence Cox, Sociology Department.  In keeping with the Library's commitment to open access, the book is available to download free of charge.
