Congratulations - you have passed stage 1! In order to see how well you can make a programme we invite you to submit a 20-40 minute Pilot programme.

For guides as to programme styles, content and please go to this Programme Guide.

If your Pilot is good enough we will put it up into the Pilot programming schedule, and invite you to become a regular contributor of podcast programmes to Earth.Radio and become a part of the change.
