Radio Drama brings together the practical skills needed for radio drams, such as directing, writing and sound design, with media history and communication theory. Challenging the belief that sound drama is a 'blind medium', Radio Drama shows how experimentation in radio narrative has blurred the dividing line between fiction and reality in modern media. Using extracts from scripts and analysing radio broadcasts from America, Britain, Canada and Australia, the book explores the practicalities of producing drama for radio. Tim Crook illustrates how far radio drama has developed since the first 'audiophonic production' and evaluates the future of radio drama in the age of live phone-ins and immedate access to programmes on the Internet.

The Radio Drama Handbook combines both theory and practice to lead, stepwise, to a full understanding of radio drama form. Broken down into two large sections, the first gives the reader an overview of English language radio drama in the US and UK and explains a variety of approaches to how radio can be understood to function as a dramatic and performative medium. The second section puts the academic groundwork into practice by leading the reader through the process of developing and creating a radio script and gives an understanding of the unique techniques demanded in radio performance skills. With a wide selection of case studies and practical exercises to make the book engaging and, above all, useful, the authors analyze War of the Worlds, We're Alive: A Story of Survival, and The Terrifying Tale of Sweeney Todd! Each section will be accompanied by practical exercises and suggested activities. Practice oriented and teacher/student friendly, this handbook is sure to become the new standard for all radio drama courses.

Audio Drama is unique. There’s no other book like it. First it’s aimed at the vast audience for audio drama, whether in the form of traditional radio plays or as podcasts. For them, Audio Drama provides the opportunity to see how ten literary classics were dramatised for radio, and to recreate the performances for themselves as they read. Secondly, it’s for all those podcast producers who are keen to exercise their imagination and technical skills by producing audio drama for their followers. These ten scripts provide the raw material from which podcasters can craft their own drama productions. The works on which they are based are literary classics and are in the public domain. The audio dramatisations – all of which have been, or are about to be, produced and broadcast either by the BBC or across the USA – are offered to the global community of podcasters with no strings attached. An experienced dramatist and abridger, with more than 50 BBC radio dramatisations under his belt, Neville Teller not only presents 10 of his scripts, but also explains something of how a radio drama script is crafted. Audio Drama fills a niche that will appeal on both sides of the pond, and more widely in the whole English-speaking world.
