We produce two 60-minute Focus talking newspapers a week, in addition to our audio magazine Sounds Northern.
: Wednesday's tape has 30 minutes of news, ranging from national and world stories to regional news from the north-east. The magazine on side two always starts with some quiz questions, on any imaginable topic from fictional detectives to facts about biscuits. We also have interviews, short stories, and features about whatever takes our fancy.
: On Saturday listeners receive a selection of more national, international and regional news. On the second side of the tape is a 30-minute magazine, with a light-hearted look at all that's new from the world of science. This is followed by features on anything from ancient history to biographies, or even tales of walking in exotic places around the world. And we finish with a preview of the coming week's radio highlights.
