Amcanion cyffredinol

The aim of the module is to enable students with two years’ experience of radio production to further develop their skills in this area, focusing in particular on radio comedy, radio drama, podcasting and the development of programme ideas.

Cynnwys cwrs

In a series of weekly two-hour workshops, as well as additional timetabled studio time, students will study examples of podcasts, radio comedy and radio drama, and develop their own ideas and productions in these areas. The emphasis will be on studio production, with students extending and expanding upon their existing production skills in this context. They will all produce individual work, and will also pitch their ideas in advance to the rest of the class.
