The fight to save short stories on Radio 4
If you would like to protect this genre please sign this petition on the National Short Story Website.
As Sarah Dunant says: 'When it comes to fiction radio excites and exercises the imagination in a way no other medium can manage. Nowhere is that more perfectly illustrated than the short story where, within 15 short minutes, one can be transported into a different world. It is a cheap yet invaluable example of radio at its best. It feels both mad - and sad - to think that radio 4 would somehow be better without it.'
