BBC Radio issues some 14,000 contracts a year to radio actors. In addition, there is a large market for actors in voice-overs, commercials and book readings. Radio differs as a medium from acting for the stage, television or film, and many actors have neither experience nor training in it. This guide takes readers through the studio layout and recording, technical terms and productive working relations with the radio director. The author describes preparing a role, voice technique, rehearsal and recording. There is also a chapter devoted to voice-overs and commercials - a lucrative part of the business - and getting started on a radio career. Appendices include a marked-up radio script, technical exercises and a glossary of technical terms.
