7 on 7 - radio sketch writers wanted

On the BBC Writersroom website, news of a new opportunity for radio sketch writers:
7 on 7 is a new topical sketch show to be transmitted on BBC Radio 7 in May 2009.

The show gets comic mileage from the news on each of the last seven days – political, cultural, sports, and trivia. We’ll take one day at a time and examine what happened on that day. Or we might use the events on a particular day to talk about a related topic. If a story develops over the week then we can revisit it in the show.

We’ll have a regular host and a cast of performers who can recreate the names who've made the news in the last week and play the ones that we invent.

The tone will be lively, satirical, and distinctly irreverent.
The closing date for submissions is 27 February 2009. Full details of how to submit sketches are on the Writersroom website.
