The Charles Parker Day is an annual event held to recognise the work of the late BBC producer and celebrates ‘the radio feature – past, present and future’.
This year, the 10th Charles Parker Day will take place on Friday 22 March and will be hosted by the University of Salford in the Digital Performance Lab at its MediaCityUK campus.
2013 is the 50th anniversary of two of Parker's famous radio ballads made with Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger - 'On the Edge' about teenagers and 'The Fight Game' about boxing. Two of the main themes of this year’s conference are therefore ‘The radio feature and young people’ and ‘Sport on radio’.
On the day we will also celebrate the work of student feature makers throughout the UK and present Gold, Silver and Bronze Prizes to the winners of the Charles Parker Prize 2013.
