Reaching large audiences with your research through working with TV and radio producers


UCL (space TBC)
United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

Mainstream broadcast media can offer a way to reach hundreds of thousands of listeners or millions of viewers – and to put subjects on the national radar. But how do you know whether your research would work as a TV or radio programme? Who do you pitch your idea to, and when is the right time?

The Public Engagement Unit (PEU), in collaboration with the Office of the Vice Provost for Research’s Impact team, is holding an afternoon of workshops to help researchers gain a better understanding of how to collaborate with radio and television producers as a means of disseminating research.

Each workshop will run through what development producers in factual TV and radio are looking for and how to go about working with them on a programme idea. We will also consider how broadcast media work fits into both public engagement and impact, and advise you on UCL support for public engagement and impact more widely.
