3tfm Community Radio for Health

The idea of a Careers Show on Community Radio was conceived during April 2006 when a local steering group. Chaired by Jim McHarg of Community Learning & Development set up a radio station called GVFM (Garnock Valley FM).

This group had been granted a four week broadcasting license and my idea was to take careers information into a new medium and this provided the ideal opportunity to experiment.

The initial concept I had was a show to highlight various careers interspersed with music and local information and the four week run of the show proved very successful. GVFM was later granted a further four week license and from there the show grew from strength to strength.

UK - Ouch

Ouch is a website from the BBC. Its aim is to reflect the lives of disabled people right here and now in the third millennium. It`s not a help and support site. If we were to give it a label, it would probably be closest to lifestyle. We pride ourselves on not being a resource for useful information, though I`m sure you`ll find most things you`re looking for here. There are many help and support sites out there that do a fantastic job, far better than we could, so we in the BBC`s Learning & Interacitve department felt it would be good to do something completely different. We`re about personal stuff, minutiae of everyday life and that fantastic dark sense of humour and inevitable cynicism that we disabled people tend to have. Oh, and we don`t shy away from subjects that other people might be a bit wary of.
