The Rules of Engagement: Finding Your Frequency

Join us for an informal seminar aimed at assisting academic researchers to communicate their research and expertise to a radio audience. The seminar will focus on how academics can position themselves as an 'expert' contributor in a live radio situation and how best to approach a radio broadcaster or production company with ideas for programmes or content.

Leading the session will be highly experienced radio practitioners:

Phil Critchlow<http://www.tbimedia.co.uk>, multi-award winning radio Producer and Director of TBI Media, Phil has developed and realised some of the highest profile broadcast projects in the UK and internationally, across many platforms including all of the BBC Radio networks, 300 commercial stations worldwide and major online projects. Phil is also the Chair of the Radio Independents Group.

Matthew Dodd, Head of Speech Programmes and Presentation at BBC Radio 3, overseeing programmes such as the nightly discussion programme Night Waves, The Essay, Free Thinking - Radio 3's annual festival of ideas, and the New Generation Thinkers scheme, a partnership between the BBC and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to find new academic talent for broadcasting.

We will also be hearing from Professor Margaret Reynolds, an academic who has had an interesting track record in this field:

Professor Margaret Reynolds<http://www.english.qmul.ac.uk/staff/reynoldsm.html>, is Professor in English at Queen Mary, University of London, and a life member of Clare Hall, Cambridge. She is the author of the Sappho History (Palgrave, 2003) and the editor of George Eliot' s Adam Bede (Penguin, 2008). As Peggy Reynolds she is the presenter of BBC Radio 4's Adventures in Poetry, which has been running since 1999. She broadcasts on music (especially opera) and poetry for BBC Radio 3 and BBC Radio 4 and for television channels BBC 2 and BBC 4. She also writes regularly for the times and the guardian.

This early evening session will be held at Royal Holloway's London home at 11 Bedford Square, London WC1B 3RF.

The Culture Capital Exchange has developed out of the successful university 'knowledge exchange' consortium LCACE, which was set up in 2004 to promote links between London universities and the capital's arts and cultural sector. The new network, a not-for-profit company, has a greater emphasis on collaboration with the private sector and creative industries than its predecessor, and will operate as a one-stop shop for any SME or entrepreneur from the cultural and creative industries wanting to work with higher education. It is the first organisation of its kind in the UK.
