Waldemar Torenstra and Hans Sibbel will look for our influence abroad during an adventurous road trip. With our VOC mentality the Netherlands has left its mark across the globe. But is this something to be proud of or should we be ashamed sometimes? Would it be right to say sorry in those cases?

In this episode of TV Lab, Waldemar and Hans go to Turkey. 2012 is the year that celebrates 400 years of friendship between both countries. But just how strong is this friendship? Waldemar and Hans are each other’s conscience during the trip and play the devil’s advocate. The merchant versus the vicar. They continually ask if the Netherlands can be proud or if it should say sorry.
