Charlie and the Moon is an interactive radio drama, designed to encourage children to listen to and enjoy radio drama in a new way. It was one of the first interactive radio dramas to take illustrations, place it alongside audio and let listeners have a choice in how the story develops.
In 2013, I was working with Hannah Webster-Sudborough on a final project for our BA(Hons) Media Production degree at the University of Lincoln. At that time, we were producing radio programmes and drama through a small production company, Dreaming Tiger Productions. With a focus on children’s media, we’d previously produced Rose (a radio drama based on a re-telling of the Brothers Grimm fairytale, The Little Briar Rose) and The Cheese Thief (a short film which introduced primary school students to the study of Modern Foreign Languages), embarking on Charlie and the Moon made perfect sense.
I have a broad range of experience and interests which stretch across the creative industries, from broadcasting to writing, design and development. I’m the author of two novels, the presenter of a syndicated country music programme which airs on stations across the UK and an established web designer and developer, with a number of national and international websites and mobile apps to my name. I am currently the Digital Education Developer for the College of Arts at the University of Lincoln, where I support and promote the adoption of digital tools for teaching and learning.
