Since September, Giles Edwards (@gilesedwards) – a documentary producer with BBC Radio 4 pictured on the masthead above and left recording our first house group – has been following three community organisers who, like me are part of the Locality programme of training. One of the three is Zara Lloyd (@claritydelusion) who works with me in Walworth. As a result, Giles has produced a half-hour programme focused on the passion and perils of being a trainee community organiser which will be broadcast as Building the Big Society today (7 March) at 11:00 on BBC Radio 4 (93.5 FM). Do listen in or – as they say – catch it again on BBC iPlayer.
The BBC News site has also run an article about the programme’s theme: What does the Big Society mean on the ground? It can be accessed here.
