Rhiannon Media Productions was created by Kate McAll.
Kate is a multi award-winning Audio Producer, Director, Podcast Producer and Writer. She has loved the immersive world of radio since she was a child. In fact her first radio making experience was at school, aged 9, when she devised a radio play, The Highwayman. It was the first and last time she would use coconut shells for horses hooves. Since those early beginnings she has script edited, produced and directed countless audio dramas and documentaries for BBC Radio 4, including Me Cheeta with John Malkovich as the eponymous chimp, Well, He Would, Wouldn’t He? – a drama doc with Mandy Rice Davies narrating her own story, and The Diary of Samuel Pepys, a full cast dramatisation, with Kris Marshall and Katherine Jakeways.
For broadcast in the US, Kate has also adapted several novels into highly acclaimed full audio productions for LA Theatre Works: George Eliot’s Daniel Deronda, E M Forster’s A Room With A View with Julian Sands, and Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein with Stacy Keach and Adhir Kalyan. Her most recent adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Links will star Alfred Molina and Simon Helberg.
Along with Georgie Vestey, she co-produces Dead Honest, a podcast about the professionals who work with the dead.
Kate is passionate about developing new talent. Recently she worked with a number of young writers on the BBC New Creatives scheme. She has also script edited, co-produced and directed IGNITE Climate Shorts a 6-part anthology of radio dramas by emerging writers launching on Earth Day.
In the last year Kate has remotely recorded and produced numerous radio dramas and readings from home – a corner of West Wales with a surprisingly good internet connection.
