Hallo

Testbed Productions makes BBC radio programmes, spoken word products, downloads and online audio of all kinds. We’ve been doing this for 22 years, and in that time we’ve made documentaries, features, letters programmes, quizzes, comedy, children’s listening, conversation and debate programmes, music programmes and a huge diversity of podcasts.

Testbed’s distinguishing feature is that we enjoy doing what we do, and that enjoyment often seems to find its way into programmes  We hope you’ll enjoy listening and reading on.
