If we’re unable to achieve one of these activities, for whatever reason, the BBC reserves the right to suggest an alternative.
In the unlikely event that the alternative suggestion isn’t suitable or the participant doesn’t want to partake in it, the BBC would approach another listener from the original list of suggestions received and explore the logistics of carrying out their activity instead.
Original Terms and conditions
‘Bucket List 40’ consists of 40 activities for listeners and Wynne to do together before Radio Wales turns 40 on 13 November 2018.
The best 40 suggestions from those submitted were chosen according to editorial merit and health and safety implications.
If more than one person suggests the same activity, all those names will go in a hat and one will be drawn out.
If, for health and safety reasons, the activity turns out to be unsuitable / weather dependent, we reserve the right to cancel it, or suggest an alternative.
If a person has to drop out of the recording, or is not available when Wynne is available, we reserve the right to cancel the recording, or offer the opportunity to another listener.
Participants agree to be recorded, filmed, and images used for editorial and publicity purposes by the BBC on all platforms.
Each activity will be covered by a full risk assessment and professional supervision where necessary.
