New video promotes Radio Indies
We are delighted to release our new video presentation which highlights the breadth, depth and success of independently produced radio programmes. It was first shown to MPs and Lords at our parliamentary event in November and is now available for anyone to view.
Featured shows include Radio 4’s Gardeners’ Question Time, Radio 5Live’s Formula 1 coverage, 6Music’s Radcliffe & Maconie and the pan-BBC Listeners’ Archive, all made of course by indies.
RIG chair Phil Critchlow said:”we’re incredibly proud of what we achieve creatively as a sector and we’re now focused on giving all those who might need it the information required so that – put quite simply – the best ideas end up on air regardless of source’
You can see the video here on Vimeo. It was produced by RIG secretary Trevor Dann and A Star Media an innovative Nottingham-based company.
