SALFORD DRAMA ON RADIO 4
 

Star date: 11th October 2009

BBC RADIO WRITING WORKSHOPS IN ORDSALL

Are you sick of those middle England plays that invade your ear space every time you try to find the footy scores and get Radio 4 by mistake? Now's your chance to take the airwaves and make them truly Salford…

Full details here…


Radio 4 in the afternoon? There's always a play featuring some frightfully posh woman who's pruning roses and going on about how her daughter's become a pregnant smackhead… 'cos that's reality, right?

Now's the chance to ditch this crap and get some proper Salford drama out there. On Wednesday 28th October at Ordsall Community Café (10:30am-4:30pm) and Thursday 29th October at St Clements' Church, Ordsall (3pm-7pm) there's a couple of informal BBC Radio Drama writing workshops happening.

You can just drop in and meet writer Louise Wallwein and BBC Development Producer, Charlotte Riches, to tell them stories going off in the community, discuss ideas or just flaunt your obvious writing talent.

The idea is for some of the work to be used for a BBC Radio 4 afternoon play - and to spare us the posh woman going to the shrink/pruning roses/having a mid-life crisis…while her daughter's out dropping pills and shagging everything in sight. Not that we ever listen to them, like…

Not all radio 4 plays are as you put it in the above article. Okay a fair ammount are! But the good one's knock spots off all the shaky camera work and 'gritty' plot lines that make up so much TV drama now. I will be going to these workshops. I do hope its not just the beeb trying to 'hang with the kids' as I would love to write something for radio drama. Shaun
