Newsjack Recording – Series 9 Episode 2

2013-09-25 21.01.02So it’s that time of year again. The nights are getting earlier, the house is getting colder and, oh yes; Newsjack is back!

For those of you who don’t know/care, Newsjack is a topical radio sketch show with an ‘Open Doors Policy’ which means that anybody can send in their sketches to be recorded.

What with all good radio comedy, the beeb needed some people to laugh in the background and so I got the chance to sit in a room, one half of the only two teenagers in a room of middleaged business men and women.

We saw the return of the main cast which features Justin Edwards from Skins, Lewis Macleod (a.k.a Postman Pat) and Margaret Cabourn-Smith who’s obviously got a good agent as she’s in everything.

Got some autographs, got a script, had a talk with Carl Cooper about how to pursue a career in radio producing. Whoppe!

The current series of Newsjack is airing thursday nights at 11pm on BBC Radio .
