Schmidt, (Eds.): Proceedings of the Fifth European Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work, Lancaster University, UK, 7-11 September 1997, Kluwer Academic Publishers, pp. 329-344.


We address computer support for work and its coordination in one of the radio channels of the Danish Broadcasting Corporation. Based upon ethnographically inspired analysis and participatory design techniques, we propose design solutions now implemented or under implementation. We focus on cooperative aspects within and among the radio channel's editorial units, and between editorial units and the editorial board. Finally, we discuss technical and organisational aspects of the design, seen in light of recent CSCW concepts.
