Horror, zoo phobia, chicken poo terrorism winners

Horror, zoo phobia and chicken poo terrorism were three of the winning themes featured in the 2006 New Zealand Radio Drama Competition.

"The eleven finalists were recorded before a packed studio audience and at times there wasn't either a dry eye or a wicked smile falling down or creasing someone's face, it was a brilliant night." said John Bullock Station Manager Fresh FM

"We have a great pool of talented writers who like using radio drama as either the medium of choice for their pieces or as a transition medium, but either way radio is one of the best theatres any writer can use," said Mr Bullock.
