Pete Atkin @ Above the Title.

The news that Pete Atkin has been appointed head of Above the Title Productions‘  drama division is very welcome in this quarter.

Pete, who has already had an illustrious career in radio broadcasting, may be being given a chance to “spread his wings” at Above the Title, but from where I stand, his track record there – a track record that has included the documentary about Stephen Potter Pottermanship(2003) with Stephen Fry, The Woman Who Invented Sitcom(2004), the radio adaptation of Frederic Raphael’s The Glittering Prizes(2005), the fascinating Something in the Air(2005) and Jam Yesterday(2005) by Peter Nichols – already has enough “wingspread” in it to look distinguished by any standard.  
Needless to say, those of us who think audio broadcasting has got a future, even in this internet and digital age, wish Pete well and look forward with considerable interest to what he may do in his new role.
