Visualising radio

In an ever-changing media landscape, radio is no longer solely about audio content. New generations of listeners increasingly expect a more visual experience to sit alongside their daily radio show.

Whether this comes in the form of glanceable information or photos, webcams in the studio or live video streams of performances and events there are exciting new opportunities for radio.

"Visualised radio is so different from tv in that tv asks you to watch it, whereas visualised radio you can dip into."– Joe Harland

To discuss these opportunities the BBC Academy's Jane Clancey is joined by Joe Harland who oversees visualising radio at BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra, Nigel Smith Interactive editor at BBC Radio 5 live and Guy Oldfield an audio visual producer also at 5 live.
