More about BBC Radio 1 Stories and how they work

On Radio 1, the majority of programmes are produced either by Radio 1 producers or a small group of Independent companies.

We also commission weekly Stories from a range of independent producers usually through an annual commissioning round. We also welcome ad hoc proposals from established programme makers.

The commissioning process involves submission of proposals, then a shortlisting period where producers may be asked to discuss their idea further.
