    What is the relation between a village in Drenthe, called New Amsterdam, and our capital?

    This question is the starting point in this episode of Qwestie van Tijd. Podium. TV visits historian Wim Visscher. Among other things he talks about the ‘Verlengde Hoogeveensche Vaart’, that played an important role in the development of the area. The quest is extended in the city of Hoogeveen, where we stumble upon some interesting facts!
