Alan Hall

Alan Hall has been a radio producer since 1990 and has built a reputation for long-form documentaries, music features and 'impressionistic radio'. Since leaving the BBC in 1998, having received two Prix Italias and Sonys, he has worked independently, establishing Falling Tree Productions as one of the world's leading radio production companies. Programmes have received further awards from the Sonys, Prix Marulic, Prix Bohemia and the Third Coast Festival.

Alan is also an Associate Tutor at Goldsmiths College, University of London, where since 1998 he has run the MA in Radio Creative feature course.

Feature maker Piers Plowright writes:
For me, radio producers are composers: they take words and sounds and make music out of them - the best of them, that is. Alan Hall is one of the very best ... an Alan Hall production has a stylishness and a musical excitement that's unmissable. And, even more importantly, he never loses the humanity of his subjects... his programmes do more than engage the ear; they stir the heart and fill the imagination.
