The Controller of Radio 4 and 4 Extra talks to the Radio Academy
Feedback's Roger Bolton and Radio 4's Gwyneth Williams before last week's Feedback in which Williams answered listeners' questions about the schedule changes and other matters.
Like buses, interviews with the Controller of Radio 4 like to arrive in tandem. Last Friday Gwyneth Williams appeared on Radio 4's Feedback to answer listeners questions put to her by Roger Bolton on the changes she's making to the schedule, particularly around extending the World at One. You can listen to the Feedback piece here on the blog.
Also recorded last week is a longer quizzing of the controller by the Radio Academy's Trevor Dann that you can now download as a podcast or listen to on the Radio Academy website. Gwyneth Williams talks at length about the schedule changes, short stories on Radio 4, the future of Radio 4 on long wave, radio drama and the importance of online and digital to Radio 4's future. She also reveals what she's been listening to most recently on the radio.
