Now the full series has been been broadcast, here are a few THANKS.
The main Producer/Director on TRACKS is James Robinson. (James and I have worked together on this series for over 6 years. There’s no better creative collaborator.)
The main Sound Designer throughout has been the amazing Nigel Lewis of BBC Wales in Cardiff. (He was given the Best Use of Sound award at the Audio Drama Awards for his work on Tracks Series 1.)
Our sound engineer has been the terrific Cathy Robinson of BBC Wales in Cardiff.
The production team in Cardiff, Eleri, Lindsay, Willa have been supportive, good humoured, and brilliant throughout.
Our leading actors have been extraordinary and a dream to work with: Romola Garai, Fiona O’shaughnessy, Hattie Morahan, and Olivia Poulet.
And, of course, our Freddy – Jonathan Forbes. (A force of energy, and creativity every step of the way.)
We’ve also had an incredibly strong guest and support cast- too many to mention.
We’ve had other writers on some episodes in series 3 and 5 – who have all embraced the show and done amazing work – Lucy Catherine, Caroline Horton, Timothy X Atack, Matt Hartley, and Katherine Chandler.
And a number of Directors on episodes in series 3 and 5:
John Norton, Rebecca Lloyd Evans, Carl Prekopp.
And Helen Perry, and Abigail Le Fleming in Series 1 who both helped set up the show.
Thanks also to the commissioners Alison Hindell, and Jeremy Howe (who took the punt on Tracks in the first place.) Without them it wouldn’t have happened.
In the top menu there’s a link to some Q&As I did after Series 1 aired.
I have now added some subsequent Q&As – in particular these relate to Series 5 and the ending of the whole show.
Finally – thanks for listening! Especially those of you who have stuck with us throughout. Your engagement has meant so much. MB
