My Radio Drama location is in a quiet bar inLondon, which generally just has the locals and acouple of passers-by. A regular there noticessomething shifty about a man who enters, he watcheshim, before asking if he is from around here. Theunknown man keeps his head down, drinking his beer.The regular asks again while walking over to him. ‘I UNIT 42: RADIOsaid, are you from around here!?’, He takes a sip ofhis drink and then slams it down, and jumps right inthe locals face. ‘Can a man not have a drink in peace DRAMAaround here!?’ The local pushes him back down to his Elliot Jonesseat, where the 3rd man goes over to try break up thefight. This angers both the men and so the unknownman jumps up and punches the 3rd man straight tothe ground. The local reacts instantly punching theunknown man, and helping the 3rd man up, as they’refriends. This leads to a fight between the unknownman and the two locals, where it ends in kicking theunknown man out of the pub.

TARGET AUDIENCE The target audience for my radio drama would be older men such as 40+ who enjoy listening to Radio 4. Radio 4 has a much older audience because of the nature of the shows, dramas and debates. I think this is where my radio drama would fit in best. I don’t see a social economic group that fits in best with my drama, I think I would get some people from all groups listening to my drama and it not being specifically for anyone. If I had to choose, I would go with group B (Intermediate managerial, administrative, professional) because I believe these are the people that will travel a lot and get the chance to be listening to such things.
