The Glass Box for Thursday and related matters
It's been a bit of a day, what with one thing and another. Tomorrow I will post more often, not least because I will be on a journey and I can take you with me. If you'd like to listen again to our Matthew Parris interview - it's just below this posting.
We spent much of the day trying to get someone from the BBC to come to the wicket in response to widespread criticism on the Matthew thread about "excessive" media coverage of the story in Portugal. We tried and failed.
As for what's in tonight's programme, well, THIS is the place where you can comment on what you heard , interact with other listeners and get responses from the people who make the programme. This is proving to be a useful tool for us, and we hope, for you.
Just click on the "comment" link.
Don't worry either if you didn't catch the whole programme, or were busy doing other things and not giving us your full attention. If there was something that "caught your ear" we want to hear about it.
The Glass Box is named after the booth outside the PM studio where we all discuss the programme at 18.00 every weeknight. We try to be honest and constructive. Sometimes there is criticism, and the criticised get a chance to explain themselves.
The people who make PM will read the comments posted, and will sometimes respond. Unless it's Roger Sawyer editing. He's completely hopeless.
Please feel free to post your thoughts. There is a link to previous Glass Boxes on the right.
Also on the right, you'll find lots of other links you might like. The Furrowed Brow for example is the venue where you can start talking about anything serious: The Beach is a fun place, and there are links to Blog entries with photos, audio and links.
