Story? – Programme 4 – Aspirations & Role Models

Story? is a five part radio series exploring topics that interest and affect young people from the Darndale & Coolock areas of Dublin. The series is produced by 15-17 year olds who attend the Sphere 17 Regional Youth Service in Darndale, Dublin 17.  Prior to production the young people engaged in community media training at Near Media Co-op, Coolock.


The series uses a magazine format which includes studio content, location interviews, panel discussions, inserts and voxpops. Narration and links are recorded to tie together the programmes. Music is used sparingly to create mood and a sense of place. Each programme also features a relevant piece of music.
