Pioneers of British Railway

Project aims:

To celebrate this year's NSEW theme.

Summary of activity:

A daily ‘episode’ broadcast several times throughout the day looking at the pioneers of the British railway.

Evaluation approach:

What went well:

1. Community radio engaging with the community about science.

2. Listeners to the station learned something new.

3. General promotion of NSEW.

What was learned:

1. Hard to ensure it was broadcast at correct times (relying on variety of presenters).

2. Had to ensure length of episodes correct for enough info without losing people's attention.

3. Had to convince management to run with the idea.
