Radio Wales offers guest producer role

BBC Radio Wales is looking for a local resident to produce their mid-morning show for a day next month as it goes on the road to Merthyr Tydfil.

Jamie Owen and Louise Elliott will be live from the town centre on 14 October and one member of the community will get the chance to contribute ideas for the show and help put it together.

Jamie says: “We’re looking to focus all three hours of the programme on Merthyr for a day, painting a picture of the area in 2011. Working with the guest producer, we have the chance to highlight all sides of the story, presenting a rounded portrayal of what’s happening in the town. Our aim is to meet as many people as possible, bringing stories from the heart of the community to audiences across Wales.”

BBC Radio Wales is doing two days of broadcasting from Merthyr on 14 and 15 October – including shows from Dowlais Engine House and Merthyr College. The town has the highest teenage pregnancy rate in the UK, on average children in Merthyr start smoking at the age of nine and last year the Work and Pensions Secretary, Iain Duncan Smith, was criticised for claiming that people there were unaware they can get on a bus to look for jobs in Cardiff.
