“A radio drama development producer told me in 2004 that the BBC receives about 10,000 radio drama scripts a year, of which only 1,000 have a realistic chance of commissioning, and then there are only slots for a few hundred of those anyway; so, regardless of the quality and relevance of your script, you could always be unlucky (e.g: Sorry, we did a piece about fishing in Scotland last year…), which means it is vital not to have unrealistic expectations or to take any disappointments personally.”Ian Kennedy – in a Script Reading for a client, 2010
