Dušan Šaponja was born in 1976 in Zadar, Croatia. In 1995 he co-authored the Srbokap (Serbo-Cop), a popular radio drama wittily and subtly criticising the absurdity and ethical blindness of Milošević’s police machinery. Consequently the B92 station grew from an underground radio station into one of the most respective media networks in the region. Šaponja’s involvement with it has changed accordingly: mainly due to celebrated Ciklotron and A Fatal Journal documentary TV series.
Dušan Čavić, born in Belgrade in 1974. In 1994 he started working at the B92 radio station, where he was quickly recognized of one of the most promising young authors. After year 2000 his professional identity grows virtually inseparable from the Ciklotron project – perhaps one of the most successful and distinguishing Serbian documentary TV series of all times.
