Sophie Black writer and radio producer

Sophie Black



I’ve produced programmes, short features and trails for over 15 years across all the major BBC radio networks including BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 4 Extra and the BBC World Service and the Sony award winning Prison Radio Association. Most recently I produced a 3 hour Chris Morris retrospective for BBC Radio 4 Extra called Raw Meat Radio.  You can hear it here.  And here’s a lovely review.

I write, edit, mix and produce all my own stuff and have my own studio at home so can record and edit remotely.  I am always looking for good radio storytelling and features ideas .

It’s Your Funeral

I asked some of my favourite comics what songs they’d like played at their funeral for a series of shorts on BBC Radio 4 Extra.  Like a sort of Desert Island Deaths.
