You can use sound to tell stories in different ways - whether that's a soundtrack, a character's voice or sound effects for a radio drama.

A recent Producers’ Forum session at the BBC studio used by The Archers and Home Front saw a lively debate about the range of skills required in sound production.

BBC Academy director Joe Godwin spoke to Neil Hillman, an award-winning sound designer and editor, Marc Silk, a voice over artist for cartoons, video games and films, and Alice Truman, a soundtrack composer in film, radio and TV.

In this podcast you will learn:

- how a sound designer creates a film soundtrack
- whether to use a boom mic or radio mic to record on location
- how a voice over artist creates characters
- how a soundtrack composer works within a film production
- how to turn an ironing board into a farm gate

Archers editor Huw Kennair-Jones and Home Front editor Jessica Dromgoole meanwhile explain how they use props in their recordings.
