To the BBC in Southampton today, to workshop ‘Sky Pilots’ in preparation for its recording next month.
Louisa Hannan led the session, assisted by Neil Sackley, playwright James Barry and Maggie Tarver from Southampton Solent University. I met the other scriptwriters, Ben White (script entitled ‘The Family Way’) and Georgina Pitt (script entitled ‘Searching’, written in collaboration with Gillian Palmer).
The workshopping was really useful, James covered more the radio drama aspects and Maggie the more purely dramatic side. Some very useful suggestions came out of the process which I will need to consider for the final version of the script.
We were all recorded at various points during the day, for broadcast during Louisa’s drive time slot:
