Last Night’s Talk Shows on 19 April 2021

The Qalyubia train crash dominated the conversation on the airwaves last night. We have chapter and verse on the incident and the talking heads’ commentary in the news well, above.

Elsewhere, Thanaweya Amma students’ online exams were on the agenda for Education Minister Tarek Shawki, who phoned into El Hekaya’s Amr Adib for a recap of the ministry’s plans for the end-of-year tests. The ministry is running trial exams in April, May, and June to test out the online system and students’ tablets ahead of the final exams slated for 3 July. Alternative options, including administering the exams on servers that don’t require an internet connection, are also on the table, the minister said (watch, runtime 7:36).
