Welcome!  This is your first port of call for pitching an idea to Earshot, and The History Listen,  ABC RN’s features and documentary programs.

We are looking for:

* stories about modern life, history and creativity.

* new and fresh ideas

We also accept series ideas that naturally stretch across several episodes.

Please fill out the form as best as you can at this point. If we have any additional questions, we will be in touch, and if we don’t feel your idea is right for Earshot, we'll let you know.
