Above the Noise

Above the noise was an exhibition at the Science and Media Museum that brought together 15 stories from Bradford in a variety of forms — from words and photographs to sound installations and new artworks.

The BCB story was a feature of the exhibition. The story of BCB is really the story of the volunteers. The audio from the exhibition is below.

Ben Mussanzi
Ben escaped the conflict in Congo by coming to Bradford as a student. ‘Big Ben of Bradford’ is now a peacemaker and a regular contributor to BCB.

Adam Paterson
Adam came to BCB to see if he could become the resident weather man. This is his story.


Banaris Iqbal
A volunteer with BCB since he left school, Banaris is part of the management committee, a studio manager, and generally pitches in for anything and everything.


Shamim Akhtar
Born and bred in Bradford, Shamim joined BCB looking to boost her confidence and 5 years later is now a key member of the management committee as well as a seasoned, all round broadcaster.


Jonathan Pinfield
Programme manager at BCB. Jonathan talks about how the technology that BCB uses to give a voice to the diverse community of Bradford has changed over the years.


Valarie Cosgrave
A regular on ‘Senior Moments’, Valerie got involved through another volunteer telling her she should come down. Here she talks about the value older people bring to the BCB community.
