Dheera Sujan happened to be in Perth when Crown Prince Willem-Alexander laid the keel for the replica of the VOC ship Duyfken, which brought the first white man to Western Australia. At the same time, she visited an exhibition on the early Dutch presence in that part of the world. 

In the second part of the programme, Dheera talks to some press photographers represented at the World Press Photo exhibition in Amsterdam.
