Taking place once a month via Zoom, BCG Pro Sessions offers our members a chance to hear advice and insight from experts, and ask questions directly to industry figures.
You can join the Zoom webinars live, or - if you can't make a session or want to revisit it later - you can catch up via video recordings archived in our Inside Track Library.
Wednesday 21st April, 19:00 - 20:00 GMT

If you press the pink register button above, before the session starts we will email you a link to click. This link will open Zoom and you'll be able to see the session.
We use Zoom's webinar format, which means only our guest's camera is on. You won't be on screen yourself, so you can relax in your underwear if you want!
Questions can be typed via Zoom's Q&A function. Simply press the Q&A button and type your question. The host will then read it to the guest when the moment is right.
Sorry that this one didn't work out for you. We will be varying the days each one occurs. The good news is we are recording the session so you'll be able to watch it back via after. You can still ask a question too, using the box above.
Julia McKenzie, the Creative Director for BBC Studios Audio, joined us to explain the commissioning process for new ideas, ways writers can develop, and more.
