"We under took this project to promote the 2006 New Zealand Radio Drama competition and to share empathy with fellow writers working under creative and deadline pressures.

"Big Balls is a mix of scripted studio recorded line and original lines recorded from people in the streets of Nelson, who readily volunteered to become actors in the project. We are very proud of the finished drama and it's a big thanks to all those who took part.

We now turn our attention to judging the entries that are pouring in for this year's competition," said NZRDC Executive Producer Kim Merry. (NZRDC)
