October 19, 2023

On Thursday, 19th of October 2023, Bibi van Ginkel was interviewed by Boos, a Dutch YouTube program broadcast by NPO and BNNVARA.

Bibi commented on the events leading up to the arrest of the 41-year-old man from Breda who took a gun and knife into BNNVARA broadcasting offices in Hilversum on September 6, 2023, in an attempt to kill the award-winning presenter Tim Hofman. 

The episode reconstructs the events of September 6 based on camera images, witness statements, and information from the interrogations. Numerous questions are asked: namely, who was this man, why did he come to Hilversum that day with the plan to kill Tim, and can this incident have a broader social meaning?
