Read in Nederlands
Everyone in the Netherlands knows this program: ‘Je Zal Het Maar Hebben’ which means something like ‘imagine having this’ in Dutch. It’s a popular tv program about (often rare) diseases. They have asked me several times to participate, and this year I finally decided to do it. I am participating in the 21st season.
Why am I participating?
Thanks to my item on a big German tv channel I found 5 new people with FIL. When I got approached again (via Instagram) for this Dutch tv show, I decided to give it a try because I want to find extended family in the Netherlands. People who do not yet have a diagnosis, or a wrong diagnosis.
15 minute item
The first interviews took place in the summer of 2021 and the recordings on Sunday 26 and Monday 27 September 2021. Usually they don’t shoot 2 days right after each other, but because of my and their schedules, this was the best option.
My tv item lasts 15 minutes in total and is divided into 3 blocks: block 1 is about FIL, block 2 about my extended family and block 3 about crochet. For block 2 I invited Janneke (whom I know from this exact same show as she was featured a few years ago) and for block 3 we also went to our dance school to make some cute shots.
