Radio 4 dominates BBC Audio Drama Awards

Programmes broadcast by BBC Radio 4 have picked up 8 of the 11 prizes at the corporation’s first ever Audio Drama Awards.

‘Lost Property – The Year My Mother Went Missing’ was named Best Audio Drama, while the top actor and actress awards went to David Tennant and Rosie Cavaliero.

Radio 3 scooped two prizes – for Best Actor (Tennant in ‘Kafka: The Musical’) and the Innovation Award (for ‘The Unfortunates’.

Although the awards were open to non-BBC dramas, the shortlists were dominated by BBC commissions. The only non-BBC winner was a drama created by radio indie Made In Manchester for The Independent Online about Rock Hudson, called ‘Rock’.

The winners were announced last night (Sunday) in the Radio Theatre at BBC Broadcasting House. Some of the award-winning and shortlisted entries will be aired over the next fortnight on BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio 4 Extra.
