Staff and students will have the opportunity to attend recordings of popular radio programmes next week when BBC Radio 4 arrives on campus.

Cardiff is one of only three universities chosen to take part in BBC Radio 4’s first-ever autumn tour which features a variety of live recordings open to staff and students, as well as a range of student workshops.

Featured programmes hosted in the Students’ Union on Thursday 12th November include Material World, Radio 4’s weekly look at the science in and behind the news, and The 3rd Degree, a new quiz show which will see Cardiff academics and undergraduates pit their wits against each other.

Comedians Holly Walsh, Andy Parsons and Jeremy Hardy will also join host Sandi Toksvig at the Union for a recording of humorous panel show, The News Quiz.

On Friday 13th November, the Julian Hodge Building will be home to topical discussion show, Any Questions, chaired by Jonathan Dimbleby, and performance poetry show Bespoken Word.

Workshops held over the two days will give students the chance to meet production staff and presenters. Topics covered include how to translate a visual series like Torchwood into radio, how to get across the excitement of science to a lay audience, feature programming, and performance poetry.
