Want a program in your schedule that brings powerful and passionate perspectives from around the globe?
Want to fill an unexpected hole in your schedule with a high quality program?
Want special programmes for the Christmas/New Year holidays in December this year?
You’ll find it in here!
Once you’ve obtained permission to broadcast (see the conditions of broadcast outlined below) scroll through the list of programmes from which you can select (also below). Please note that programmes cannot be edited – if you want to use any one, it must be played in its entirety. Files of broadcastable quality (.wav and .flac format) are downloadable for each programme in the extensive list in our archive.
A new program every week will be available by mid-night every Wednesday (Greenwich Mean Time).
Alternatively, there is already an extensive archive of hour-long programs from which you can choose.
All new programmes submitted to this site numbered 35-2007 onwards are 58 minutes in length. However, as each programme contains a feature song of over 3 minutes length, you can cut the song back to a sting to suit any time slot from 55 minutes to 58 minutes. Programmes submitted to this site numbered less than 35-2007 vary from 56 to 58 minutes.
For songs and stings in all programmes, music rights have been cleared with the World Music Network, provided you broadcast the entire programme in which the music is included. A short audio ad to promote the programme when it is first scheduled at your station will be available soon – watch this space!
There’s something for everyone here: big picture debates; popular culture; or everyday lifestyle issues. There’ll be new recommendations added to this section on a three month rotation. You’ll find a fuller summary of each of these programs together with the downloadable program in The Broadcasters’ Room archive. (The right to broadcast these programs is subject to the conditions outlined in the next section.)
By the end of November 2007, the Broadcasters’ Room will offer at least four Christmas-New Year specials. One will travel around the globe to compare how different cultures and religions celebrate their New Years. Another – called ‘Eat, Drink, and be Merry!’ – will focus on global issues surrounding the food and drinks that we’re likely to find on our tables during these celebrations. And two will look back on this year’s big global problems and look forward to their solutions.
