    So the first tranche of A History of The World has come to an end - and very, very good it has been. We leave part one with a Chinese Bell.

    There won't be unanimous approval because too many people are listening to it for that - but the evidence is that those who do listen broadly love it.

    I have written...

    David Cameron in a BH lift

    Leader of the opposition David Cameron came into Broadcasting House this morning to talk to Jenni Murray. I headed over to meet him as he entered the building and got a few photographs of the big event. The other pictures are on Flickr and you can listen to the interview - the second of the programme...

    Here's a puzzle - and to help you solve it, a clue. The Bottom Line is a conversation show where top chief executives and entrepreneurs have a lively debate about business topics with Evan Davis. Now, can you spot the odd-one-out in the following list?

    1. A hypnotist

    Editor's note: SWYWTH's Facebook page has pics, news from the project and, of course, SWYWTHs - SB.

    What is a SWYWTH? What is your SWYWTH? Is it that secret something you say to yourself every day when you look in the mirror? Something that constantly echoes in your mind? Something that, finally, really...

    I love short film festivals. They're a bit like a box of chocolates: You might get an incredible story, a fantastic animation or something totally abstract and experimental. And when you do get a dud, you're safe in the knowledge that there'll be another along soon.

    Radio 4 is uniquely privileged to have...

    Bowie RAJAR

    It's RAJAR day. It happens four times a year. We get figures for the previous quarter's listening - in this case Oct- Dec 2009.
