Picture Power, Radio4

It’s always been said that the members of Document Scotland have a great face for radio, so we took everyone at their word… We’re very pleased to announce that next week you’ll be able to hear our dulcet tones, our lovely Scottish accents on Radio 4.

Miles Warde of Radio 4 very nicely came along to the opening night of our ‘Common Ground’ show last August at Street Level Photoworks in Glasgow, and interviewed us about the photography we’d been doing all year in the run up to the show and the run up to the Sept 18th referendum on Scottish Independence. Miles has craftily woven comments and quotes together, from interviews with Sophie as she was out photographing on the streets, and then interviews with the rest of us at the gallery opening, and has produced a 15minute programme which will broadcast on Wednesday 4th February, at 13:45hrs, on BBC Radio4.

The programme is one in the Picture Power series, in which Miles talks to various photographers about how they covered the big news stories of 2014. All programmes will be worth a listen we are sure!

We’d be ever so grateful if you could tune it to listen and in advance help spread the word to anyone who may be interested. Thank you.  And of course, huge thanks to Miles Warde and the team at Picture Power!
