Radio feature assembly line
Lisbeth Jessen (head of a TV master school), formerly working for the DK feature group (see below), presents Denmark's new urban FM channel Radio 24seven established to be a competitor to Denmark's DK P1. Radio 24seven, among many other (old-fashioned) formats, has started producing radio features according to a new concept called "Raw Tapes": Young producers do recordings, seven hours long, which then will be broadcast, one hour each night. Meanwhile the feature producer grabs the material and turns it into a full-blown radio feature which, in the end, will be broadcast at daytime. "Raw Tapes" brought Radio 24seven into contact with a whole lot of unknown, young, and promising producers.
