Students will consider the items used in radio packages. Interviews, voxpops, music, archives, actuality, and sound effects. The variety of radio packages will be examined, looking at news, features, sport, and drama creative soundscapes. The production process behind the radio package will be explored – with particular emphasis on the news package, the feature package and the creative soundscape package, which does not use the human voice. While theory will be the basis of the module, the making of the programmes will be the main learning tool. At the end of the semester, each participant will have made four radio packages individually or as a group member and will have experienced the roles of producer, presenter and interviewee during the production of a radio package.
