I produced this radio package for Global Radio on Tim Peake’s mission to become the first British astronaut to visit the International Space Station. This story was being covered in depth by many national and regional news organisations and I localised the story by joining pupils at Salford City Academy who were watching the launch. This package made the top story on Heart’s Nightly News programme at 6:45pm on December 15.
I decided to be creative by using some actuality and sound effects of the launch which helped bring my story to life, and by focusing on how Tim’s mission inspired young people to achieve their goals, this made it original. The radio piece targets Heart’s core audience of 25 to 44-year-olds.
