    Many people contributed to today's launch of the redesigned Radio 4 web site, some over several years - not least Leigh Aspin and his Radio 4 interactive team and the many engineers from the various BBC technology departments who dreamt up and then built the fantastically useful catalogue of BBC programmes...

    The Radio 4 website was in need of an overhaul and today - after a lot of work and audience research - comes a new one. The disappearing site was rather cluttered and things were often difficult to find. Under the surface the edifice was kept together by increasingly frayed technology. So I hope you...

    This is a short post to let you know that we're almost ready to relaunch the Radio 4 website and so you can expect the change to take place on Tuesday morning. Please bear with us on the day as we bed down the new site. There are bound to be some issues and things to get used to. A site like this is...

    Evan Davis has won the Broadcasting Press Guild award for best radio presenter. This is not a surprise - but nonetheless thoroughly good news. He has been terrific on Today where he came for a one year stint - but everyone wants him to stay and he is staying. And although no longer the BBC's economics...

  6. Reactions to the Go4It announcement

    Cancelling a radio programme at Radio 4 is rarely easy to do. Cancelling a radio programme that's the last one on Radio 4 aimed at a particular audience was never going to gain universal approval - or anything like it.

    Last week's announcement that Go4It will come off the air in May met with the kind...

    On Saturday I was told The West Yorkshire Playhouse/Northern Broadsides Othello with Lenny Henry in the title role is coming to the West End in London in the autumn. I am particularly thrilled.

    I saw it on its last night at the Playhouse and liked it a great deal. (It is currently on tour). I thought...

  10. Go 4 It

    Mark Damazer Mark Damazer

    The demise of Go 4 It is in some ways a sad moment. It is not merely the loss of a programme - but the loss of a specific, regularly scheduled attempt to engage children with Radio 4 and the joys of radio in general. I know some will think we should persist in broadcasting the programme on the grounds...
