Téréli, a village in the Dogon region of Mali, was first linked with Burley in Wharfedale, a village in West Yorkshire, through the ‘On the Line’ project which was the brainchild of Jon Snow.

‘Perhaps the most improbable link you can imagine, Téréli and Burley, yet linked by the reality that people in each village live life at exactly the same time despite being separated by thousands of miles. The shared interests, endeavours and aspirations of the two communities that are expressed in the link between Téréli and Burley illustrate the fact that despite our material divisions we are all one.’

Jon Snow
