Eurovision Insight Podcast: In-Depth With ESC 2015 Scriptwriter Gregor Barcal Written by on May 18, 2015

I thought the EBU offered a handbook called ‘How To Do The Song Contest’ with ‘Don’t Panic’ written on it…

The man behind @esc2015cp is Gregor Barcal, the scriptwriter for the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest. The Eurovision world has been following the online accounts of ORF’s Creative Producer for this year’s Song Contest over the last year. What does it take to help drive the Contest forward? How can one voice make a difference? And how can you build a career that gives you an opportunity to contribute to one of the world’s biggest TV shows.

After a lot of diary juggling, Barcal graciously took an hour out of his schedule to sit down to record another of our ‘In-Depth Insight’ podcasts looking at the driving forces behind the Song Contest.
