Radio Docs: From Idea to Airwaves

Here’s an update on our upcoming workshop on the art of the radio documentary…hosted by the CBC’s David Gutnick!

Radio Documentaries From Idea to Airwaves

A raven is like a writing desk because they both have inky quills…. but a radio documentary is not a news report.  In this exclusive workshop, David Gutnick will talk about what makes a good documentary idea – and how he goes from that initial idea to collecting the material, to the writing, recording and mixing that produces the final documentary that we hear on the radio or podcast.

Is radio documentary an under-appreciated art form? Are iPads and Twitter pushing radio docs into obsolescence?  Or does digital technology breathe new life into this thought-provoking art from? Bring your ideas, your enthusiasm and your questions and prepare to be inspired!

David Gutnick has been making radio documentaries for CBC radio for over 25 years…..He’s travelled to China to meet underground dissidents, to India with a Canadian medical tourist, and to Haiti where he lived with a family after the earthquake.
