Documentaries & Magazines

The essential element of a good documentary is, simply, the story. Listeners are drawn in to people'slives, their worries, their hopes and their fears, giving them a new perspective on issues relevant to them. Our documentaries share the stories of everyday people, while also weaving in the voices of experts, specialists, and academics. Likewise, our audio magazines are lively multi-format programmes that combine interviews, vox pops, dramas, and a strong narrative – all with the experiences and stories of listeners at the heart of the production.
