    Lost Property Trilogy was a stunning piece of work and had me in tears for a good percentage of the time... not helped with the gorgeous Kate Rusby singing at the end! Brilliant work everyone X

    A great event beautifully coroegraphed and very well organised. If anyone observes that most of the winners were 'BBC Radio Drama for Radio 4' productions just ask yourself who else in the plethora of radio stations out there in the ether, bothers to produce radio plays. Too few I fear! Thank goodness for the BBC without whose encouragement and active support there would be precious little radio drama broadcast at all.

    Thanks so much for this Paul. It's absolutely thrilling that at last the BBC is filling the audio gap in the market place when to comes to awards. So much hard work goes into these programmes and they mean such a lot to so many people. Hurray!
