Gwyneth Williams has just completed her first year as controller of BBC Radio 4 - the station with one of the most vocal and critical audiences out there. So, how easy is it to innovate without upsetting the traditionalists?

And how can the station attract younger people without alienating older ones?

What is the future for the flagship Today programme? And are there enough women on air? Gwyneth talks to the doyenne of radio columnists Gillian Reynolds.


6.30pm - 8pm
Wednesday 16 November 2011
