13th of June is BAFTARS time - the University of Salford's decadent answer to the BAFTAS ... where we celebrate the work produced by students on the BA TV & Radio (or BATAR as it is known) this year.
The award ceremony, hosted by radio legend Darryl Morris and featuring a stellar cast of judges from the BBC and the commercial sector, will be broadcast LIVE right here on Utter Radio and include the added spice of sarcastic Eurovision-style commentary from Lauren Johnston and Megan Hayward.
But that is not all ...
... from 10am-6pm the Utter Radio team will present a series of two-hour long programmes featuring interviews with nominees and samples of the nominated productions.
And from 6-7pm the red carpet show will see our roving reporter Ryan Croughan button-hole the great and the good as they traverse the legendary BAFTARS red carpet spanning from the foyer to the auditorium.
You can enjoy the nominated radio productions here.
