BBC Radio 4 Extra – Newsjack

Newsjack the Radio 4 Extra topical news sketch show, which anyone can write for, is again looking for writers to submit sketches and one-liners for its 24th series.

Irreverent and satirical, Newsjack is the scrapbook sketch show written entirely by the Great British public, and then brought to life by a revolving cast of sketch performers.

Trying to make sense of it all is host Kiri Pritchard-McLean.

Go to Newsjack’s Submission Page on their website for full details, advice, script templates and details of fees for material which is used on air.
