S4C is keen to commission a 6 x 60' series of Radio Gaga using this format and adjusting it to a degree for S4C's audience. We are looking to start broadcasting the programme in June 2020 on Sunday evening at 8 o'clock.

Proposals will be evaluated on the basis of:

• How you would customize the tone and settings of the format for S4C's audience? We like the filmic style and the storytelling but care must be taken to avoid the tone and content being too intense. You also need the warmth, the intensity and the amusement to show through.

• Which venues would you visit for the 6 programs and why?

• Who are the potential presenters and why? Remember you need two people who can listen as well as draw stories and present.

• Who is the production team?

• How would you create complementary digital content that will attract a wide audience to watch, engage and discuss the content?

You should aim to include the above information in your application.


• 6 x 60' long series

• Radio Gaga Format

• Digital content to attract a wide Audience


Depending on the content, we are looking at commissioning the content at a tariff of between £ 60,000.00 - £ 70,000.00 per hour.


We are inviting content ideas for broadcast in June 2020.

We will notify companies if they are successful by 20 December 2019.
