BBC Radio 4 and Live Theatre are looking for pairs of people who are close friends or family who are interested in being recorded having a conversation that may eventually end up being broadcast on BBC Radio 4. There’s no age limit, and we welcome intergenerational conversations and people from all backgrounds with interesting stories for interesting conversations. We are looking for people to come along for a chat. What you talk about is completely up to you. This project is about creating space for you and a loved one to have the conversation you always meant to have.
