Why audio and PRA

Why you should be using audio

Audio can support and enhance your communications strategy:

  • Personal: audiences have an intimate relationship with audio allowing you to build rapport with your target market;
  • Inclusive: audio is accessible to anyone, regardless of reading ability;
  • Time-efficient: audiences commonly listen whilst doing other things at work, at home, or commuting;
  • Portable: downloaded audio can be taken with you and listened to whenever you want;
  • Builds a richer picture: it’s easy to share audio via an integrated social media strategy, adding depth and colour to your communications;
  • Targeted: audio can be tailored to your specific audience and distributed via channels appropriate to your target market.

Success stories

Creating a documentary for Victim Support

Victim Support commissioned PRA Productions to produce a powerful documentary which gave three victims of violent crime the opportunity to explain the impact of these crimes to a group of prisoners.

First broadcast on National Prison Radio, Face to Face broke new ground in the coverage of restorative justice. Such was its impact, BBC Radio 4 made the rare move of re-broadcasting the programme.

Face to Face won a prestigious Gold Sony Radio Academy Award and won the PRA & Victim Support the award for Best Charity Partnership at the Third Sector Awards 2012.

“True ‘stop what you’re doing’ radio. It was a programme that had made a difference to all who had participated in it...and the judges felt privileged to have heard it.” Sony Radio Academy Awards 2012
