Since the end of last year a group of our BA TV and Radio students have been gaining valuable industry experience by launching boutique acting agency Manchester ADP’s brand new podcast series, ADP Audio.

The podcast dramas were recorded in our MediaCityUK studios over several sessions then edited in our suites, with students cutting recording and adding sound effects alongside the producers.  

“Our students have really enjoyed working with Manchester ADP,” said Creative Technical Demonstrator Louis Young who oversees the partnership. “It’s mutually beneficial – they get hands-on industry experience and can see the productions through from start to finish, while ADP can take advantage of the skills of our talented students and fantastic facilities.”

The students were given the chance to collaborate with professional directors, producers and actors, some of which had previously worked with the BBC.

Manchester ADP are a registered Not for Profit, that was created to support new writing and are always on the lookout for volunteers to help with the projects. To find out more visit
