Square Dog Radio LLP is an independent radio production company formed in 2007 by two experienced Radio 4 freelance reporters and producers who made up one half of the quartet that set up Pennine Productions in 2000 — now known as Pennine Productions (Archive) LLP. The original aim was to make programmes that weren’t rooted in south-east England, either in conception or in production. So during the seven-year life of the old company we covered stories from northern England, Canada, Ukraine, Australia, South Africa, the Czech Republic, Austria, the USA, France, Canada, Russia, Namibia, Nepal and Guatemala. Most of those programmes were made for BBC Radio 4, with a few for World Service and Radio 3. In 2003 a legendary book producer joined the old company as a Consultant & Producer and continues to work with us in Square Dog Radio.
