BBC Radio 3's New Generation Thinkers for 2012 pictured at the press launch on Monday 11 June.
Earlier this week, BBC Radio 3 announced the names of the ten academics who had secured a place on its New Generation Thinkers scheme.
Working with the Arts and Humanities Research Council to select the ten, the BBC will mentor the academics, develop their broadcasting skills and shape their ideas into fully-formed programmes for radio and television.
During the press launch, I spoke to Radio 3's Head of Speech and Presentation Matthew Dodd, Mark Llewellyn from the Arts and Humanities Research Council , and some New Generation Thinkers about the scheme.
More information about the scheme can be found on the BBC's Media Centre website.
The New Generation Thinkers for 2012 will make their debut appearance on BBC Radio 3's Night Waves on Monday 18 June.
