Steve Mawhinney, 5 live Head of News:
Sunday mornings provide a special moment in the week. The chance to pause and try to make sense of what's happened in the preceding seven days and the chance to peer forward to see what's likely to emerge in the week ahead. Double Take aims to seize this special moment to do just that.
It will grapple with the big stories that have dominated the news agenda and got the nation talking and aim to shed new light with eye-witness reporting and illuminating interviews. There is always more than one way to look at any story, and stories often feel very different depending on where you are, how it impacts upon you and what experience you bring to it.
Double Take wants to explore all those perspectives and as always, we are keen that you jump in alongside us to share your insight and experience.
The programme will also start to shape the news that is to come, so that our listeners are well armed for the week ahead. In that way we hope Double Take will become a must listen for Sunday mornings on 5 live.
Sam Walker, presenter:
Every week we'll give you the chance to take another look at some of the biggest stories of the week and with the idea that two heads are better than one, try and take a different perspective and get the alternative view, from politics to popular culture, with a healthy injection of humour and personality.
We'll also have an eye on a couple of the stories that we think are going to be big news in the coming week and give you a head start on tomorrow's news.
I grew up in the Midlands, then spent ten years in London before hitting the north in the early noughties, where I now live in and love Manchester. My particular passion is for music, popular culture and the human stories behind the news.
Anita Anand, presenter
Well now - this is a weird feeling - same studio, same station, a totally new friend to play with, and a totally new show to do it in.
I'm so excited about Double Take. What an enormously interesting time to be taking that sideways glance at some of the most eyewatering stories I have ever come across in my career.
We are going to have fun on this show and hopefully lift the covers on some of the issues others just skirt over (goodness me, that's a lot of laundry metaphors - maybe I need to put a wash on...)
I met Sam Walker last week for the first time, and let me tell you, you are in for a treat - she's fiesty and fun and very well informed. I think this may be the start of a beautiful friendship.
