You can use your phone or mobile device to make recordings, but we recommend trying to record somewhere quiet where there aren't too many sonic distractions. To help us download your files, please keep recordings under one minute long, and make sure that they don't include voices or anything that could be used to identify you or anyone else.

Here’s how we use your information.

We will only use your contact details for the purpose of getting in touch with you about the programme. These details will not be passed to anyone else.
