Radio Documentary

A Radio Documentary involves researching a non-fiction topic and focusing in on micro-stories, as opposed to broader issue pieces or news stories. They often rely on conventional narrative structures, adding recorded, site-specific sounds to enhance the listener’s experience. Radio documentaries are a time-based form, therefore rhythm, cadence, and tempo are important elements.
