Fact to Friction
What is Fact to Fiction?It is this; An artist – me for example – listens to the weeks news at BBC and writes, within that same week, a poetic text which is recorded on Friday of that same week and broadcast on Saturday and Sunday. Pressure is on. The producer of Fact to Fiction at BBC Radio Four which I’m writing throughout next week, has dropped out.I got the call about the producers disappearance from Eoin OCallaghan , the executive producer. He is now going to be producing my show. This is when your mettle is tested - not when everything goes smoothly, but when things like this happen. I am chewing my knuckles and standing on a ledge. I am sending this via text. It may be my last message.
