James Fritz won both the Imison and the Tinniswood with his social media play "Comment is Free". Nigel Lewis won 'best sound design' (Tracks, dir.

SPINE CHILLERS, R4X Jan-Feb 2017
Thirty-two years ago Radio 4 ran a series of supernatural dramas called Spine Chillers.The have been resurrected by radio 4 Extra and they add a much-missed frisson to the airwaves. ....summarised from Jane Anderson, RT.

The episodes are going out on Sundays and the titles are:
1.Origami, by Jill Hyem (22 Jan)
2.Dracula in White, by Peter Redgrove (29 Jan)
3.Witch Water Green, by Don Webb (5 Feb)
4.Figures, by Colin Haydn Evans
5.Mrs. M, by David Campton

These were 45 minutes long, except the Don Webb, which lasted an hour. I am pleased to report that an off-air recording of Don's episode was donated to the BBC archive by VRPCC (aka The Radio Circle) for this broadcast.
