Indie lands 2nd Radio 4 show

Made in Manchester Productions has won its first-ever commission for the Radio 4 Archive Hour strand, marking the indie's 2nd project for the network.

Veteran political journalist John Sergeant will team up with veteran politician Tony Benn for Giving Way to a New Era – a trawl through some of the most momentous speeches and debates of the past three decades.

Ordered by outgoing Radio 4 commissioning editor Mohit Bakaya, the programme will air at 8pm on Saturday April 5th.

Made in Manchester Productions’ creative director Ashley Byrne told “It’s hard to believe we’ve only been hearing Prime Minister’s Question Time on a regular basis for 30 years. Before April 1978, what happened in parliament was delivered to us third hand through political commentators."

Giving Way to a New Era is being produced by Rosemary Foxcroft and is Made in Manchester’s second commission for BBC Radio 4. It follows the success of the award-winning documentary I Got Up Out of My Seat in which Sir David Frost examined the legacy of the American evangelist Billy Graham.
