With the resurgence (though some say it has never left) of radio, due in part to new media practices and technological innovations, not only are there more theory-related radio courses, but also those teaching the production and practice aspects. This book combines both theory and practice to lead to an understanding of radio drama form.
This title combines both theory and practice to lead, stepwise, to a full understanding of radio drama form. With the resurgence (though some say it has never left) of radio, due in part to new media practices and technological innovations, not only are there more theory-related radio courses, but also those teaching the production and practice aspects. "The Radio Drama Handbook" combines both theory and practice to lead, stepwise, to a full understanding of radio drama form. The handbook is broken down into two large sections: "A Contextual Guide to Radio Drama" and "A Practical Guide to Radio Drama". There will be a wide selection of case studies and practical exercises to make the book engaging and, above all, useful. 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.

This invaluable handbook is indispensable in the age of interactive audio drama production in cyberspace as well as traditional BBC style studio recordings. A masterpiece of teaching and research and rallying point for expressing audio drama as an art-form in the 21st century. Tim Crook, Head of Radio at Goldsmiths, University of London and author of Radio Drama: Theory and Practice and Writing Audio Drama Richard J. Hand and Mary Traynor have produced a monumental resource that is especially valuable to media educators who seek to facilitate imaginative, creative thinking about audio drama. The text offers valuable case studies, class exercises, vivid examples, scripts, and insightful commentary of classic broadcasts and web produced audio drama. Particularly informative is the focus on productions created by a new generation of enterprising internet companies like Chatterbox Audio Theater and Icebox Radio Theater. These small scale production groups are utilizing web technologies to expand the freedom of dramatic expression and interactivity with their audiences. Hand and Traynor provide excellent illustrations of the role of audio drama in contemporary media and its rediscovery by young media entrepreneurs.
