The SCCJR’s Dr Alistair Fraser has written about his experience so far as one of the BBC’s New Generation Thinkers – 10 academics hand-picked from across the UK whose research will be made into radio and television programmes.

In a post for the University of Glasgow’s Sociology blog, Alistair reflects on the process of creating an audio “postcard” – a three-minute recorded monologue that tries to send a picture of a place.

The postcard and a short interview with Alistair were included in an episode of Free Thinking broadcast on May 17 that you can listen to here (from 13m14s), and you can read all about its creation on the blog here.
