Program entitled Paristik Euskal Herrira. Insaustiren emisioa (Paris to Euskal Herria, Insausti emission), referred to the programs that Jesús Insausti "Uzturre" took place in the early 1960s. We need to remember that during the period in which André Camp headed Radio Paris, not only the emissions towards Latin America began, but also emissions in other peninsular languages, especially in Galician, Basque and Catalan, were created. All this in the context of the politics of Grandeza sought by President Charles De Gaulle - true architect of the V French Republic-, in which the international broadcasts of the ORTF played a key role as propaganda.
The mask that opens and closes the program is its own, and different from the ones of Irrintzi: from Paris to the Basque people around the world. This recording in particular corresponds to the program dedicated to the Aberri Eguna or day of the homeland of the Basque nationalists, party convened annually at Easter Sunday. The broadcast consists of several parts. In the first place, the sermon of the Canon Alberto Onandia - better known as father Olaso - is heard at the Aberri Eguna mass held in Paris. "Father Olaso" was one of the few survivors of the massacre of Basque priests perpetrated by the francoists. Exiled in London, he became one of the most important collaborators of Radio Paris and fight against the dictatorship, between 1946 and 1957, until the pressures of the Madrid government managed its cessation on the station. His sermons were often read by announcers like Xesús Nieto Pena or Julián Antonio Ramírez himself, but in this case it is listened with in his own voice. It should not be forgotten that the own Julián Antonio Ramírez was closely linked to the Basque country, since he was born there, had been there, had fought on the northern front during the Civil War, and knew the language, although he was never identified with the independence movement.
Subsequently, Jesús Insausti - Uzturre-, and the third person who speaks is Xabier Landaburu (Vice President of the Basque Government in exile) - Francisco Javier de Landaburu Fernandez de Betoño Vitoria 5 September, Paris May 6, 1963-, who is presented by Uzturre in a recording made on the same day of the Aberri Eguna. Landaburu is presented by Uzturre as euskaldunberri (as he learned Euskera when he was grown-ip and outside Euskal Herria). In his speech, Landaburu hopes to hold the next Aberri Eguna, in Basque country.
The song that is included is the zortziko Agur Jesusen Ama, is a religious song dedicated to the Virgin Mary which usually close the masses in the Basque country. In this case, the recording corresponds to the mass of Aberri Eguna. From the references that are included in the program, it can be deduced that the emissions corresponds to Aberri Eguna of 1961, and concludes with a reference to Jesus Uzturre President Charles De Gaulle, "21 years ago it was our hope" - presumably refers to 1940-. Jesús Insausti closes its reference with "Vive la Republique, Vive la Liberté", dedicated to De Gaulle.
