In the meantime...
iPM will be back later in the year after a break of a few months (we'll keep you posted on the return date) but while we're off-air the blog will live on. I'll be working to put your stories on the radio, on to this blog and elsewhere on the BBC. So if you have a newsworthy idea which you think deserves a bit of coverage on Radio 4 drop a note in comments or email me at ipm [at] bbc.co.uk I'll keep the rough notes section going too so you can see what I'm working on. Here are a few pointers on the kind of material I'm looking for:
- Ideas for leads to follow up, perhaps based on your own experience, that could be turned into a news story with a bit of work. e.g. the poor broadband speeds many of you experienced
- Interesting blogs that are below the radar. e.g. BH have had great fun talking to Bill Lamin of the Wwar1 blog
- Stories covered in the blogs but overlooked by the rest of the media. The Spyblog's story about mobile phones in jails was a good example
I'll also be glued to my RSS reader looking for ideas from the blogs, so if you are a blogger or an avid blog reader, advice on what you think I should be reading will always be very welcome.
