In relation to the voiceover, we used the same member
of staff that we used to do the voiceover, so that it
linked both the documentary and radio trailer together.
Our radio trailer in total lasts for 51 seconds whereas the
codes and conventions specify that a professional radio
trailers lasts roughly for about 30 to 40 seconds.

I also noticed that of the various amounts
of radio trailers we listened to, all seemed
to contain a rhetorical question and as a
result of this, we created our own so as to
attract the attention of the audience.
Same scheduling information used in
both the radio trailer and newspaper
The scheduling information such as the date, time
and channel in which the documentary was to
broadcasting on as it was one of the codes and
conventions that made itself present when listening
to professional radio trailers.
The music bed that we used for our radio trailer was called ‘Brians Log’ which was an instrumental piece of music taken for ‘Doctor Who:
Series 7’. The way this benefitted us, is that not only did it correspond with the voiceover, but after we listened to actual radio trailers that
had previously been aired, we noticed that most of the music that they used tended to be instrumental as well. This is also beneficial as
it doesn’t overshadow the voiceover as well.
