The remit of Radio 4 is to be a mixed speech service, offering in-depth news and current affairs and a wide range of other speech output including drama, readings, comedy, factual and magazine programmes.
The service should appeal to listeners seeking intelligent programmes in many genres which inform, educate and entertain.
Current service licence
This service licence was reissued in May 2013 with an amended annual budget for the financial year 2013/14. The new budget reflects any approvals already given by the Trust including those within the Delivering Quality First strategy.
