Now Wash Your Hands
Late Night Locked Down Comedy
was part of the production team on BBC Radio 4's Now Wash Your Hands - a pioneering late-night lockdown comedy in April and May 2020, commissioned by Sioned William, which won Best Podcast, Creativity and Entertainment Award from Radio Days Europe.
The presenters Jon Holmes, Jake Yapp, Natt Tapley and Salma Shah anchored the show and we dropped in on special guests at home including Sanjeev Bhaskar, David Baddiel, Miranda Hart, Tony Blackburn, Kirsty Wark, Anton Du Beke, Mel Giedroyc, the cast of EastEnders, Ed Balls, David Sedaris, Jenny Éclair, Jamali Maddix, Ian MacMillan, Matt Lucas and even Grammy-winning post-punk band Bowling For Soup, plus diverse voices of real life listeners who were stuck in India or on cruise ships around the world as our ‘correspondents on the ground’.
We embraced the brave new world of remote radio production, experimenting with new recording techniques and giving tech and soundproofing (duvet) advice to special guests from all over the world.
All episodes - plus bonus extra content - are available on BBC Sounds.
