THE SCANNER – BBCR4 sketch show

Written and produced in 2008, THE SCANNER promised ‘the very best (and other bits) of European radio…’ and was a vehicle to satirise and mimic the many tropes and cliches of radio broadcasting. It wasn’t in any way supposed to poke fun at the countries of mainland Europe (I was and ‘remain’ a committed Europhile) but was misconstrued as such by several newspapers looking for a stick to beat their own drum (thankyou Daily Mail, Express, Telegraph).
