Go behind the scenes of BBC Radio 4 with a screenwriter and a producer
You’re invited to a SUNDAY SALON at an extraordinary venue in the heart of Hove. It is a place to connect, share ideas and ASK QUESTIONS over tea and cake.
For the first ever Salon on April 28th at The Regency Town House we have two special guests.
DYMPHNA FLYNN is the producer of BBC Radio 4’s Bookclub, chaired by James Naughtie, the monthy programme which allows readers to meet and question the world’s leading writers. In addition, she produces on Front Row, Radio 4’s evening live arts magazine. In her 30 year BBC career Dymphna has also worked on the greatest radio show of all time, not her words, but a decision recently reached by a panel of industry experts. Can you work out which programme earned that accolade? Scroll down to find out if you were right.
SUE TEDDERN created the comedy drama soloparentpals.com (now available as an audiobook) and Cooking in a Bedsitter which turned Katherine Whitehorn’s 1960s guide into a Radio 4 comedy drama series. She has also written scripts for the second greatest radio show of all time… A highly experienced lecturer, Sue has co-written an essential guide to writing for TV and radio and can answer questions about preparing a script and launching your own writing career .
THE VENUE The Regency Town House, built in the 1820s, is a grade 1 listed terraced house in Brunswick Square that is being developed by staff and volunteers as a heritage centre and museum. It’s an extraordinary work in progress rather than a polished showhouse and I’ve been volunteering here for over a year. Events like this help to maintain the fabric of the building and allow us to push forward on many exciting projects. Sue and Dymphna are giving their services for free: so is the baker, the teamakers and the tea cup washer-uppers. Find out more about the Town House HERE. You might want to get involved yourself. The Date Sunday afternoon April 28th 3pm to 5pm Tickets Buy your tickets through Eventbrite HERE. And start thinking of the questions you want to ask.
*And the greatest ever radio programme is – drum roll – Desert Island Discs. The 2nd greatest is The Archers.
