CNN STUCK IN MACEDONIA
CNN reporter Nic Robertson and his CNN tv crew were stuck in Skopje at the Alexander the Great Airport yesterday. After staying a week in Macedonia, for filming a documentary about Macedonia and Mother Theresa, they couldnt leave for Brussels, for their next filmings.
Alexander the Great aiport was not closed, but because of danger of the ash clouds from Iceland above Europe, there are no European flights from or to Skopje. Because of that the CNN crew rented a car and went driving to Brussels.
Yesterday, Robertson was live on the air on CNN when he was sitting at the Macedonian-Serbian border, reporting that there are no flights from Skopje and they had to rent a car. Robertson has been in Macedonia since April 10 until yesterday. Together with his crew they filmed a documentary about Macedonia and Mother Theresa as a part of the i-List series. Part of the documentary was filmed at the house of Mother Theresa and several citizens were interviewed, including Prime Minister Gruevski.
Every month there is a new country which will be documented. The reports are focusing on economics, culture and innovations. The series will air in May.
