Yes! It’s that time of year again! 12th of June: 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 BBC radio legend Chelsea Norris 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 Eurovision-style commentary from Megan Hayward, Tom Levins and Dan Richmond.
But that it not all …
… from 10am-6pm Utter Radio 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 Sam Burton button-hole the great and the good as they traversed the legendary BAFTARS red carpet that spans from the foyer to the auditorium. You can enjoy the nominated radio productions here.
