iPM: Your News
Maybe it's reckless to say so on this particular blog, but we at iPM - the programme that starts with its listeners - are hereby laying claim to a genuine, bona fide, no-money-back-guarantee first. This Saturday, iPM will broadcast a news bulletin made up entirely of your news. Not just your responses to our news, but actual BBC news based on you. Yes, you.
I couldn't face seeing my mother, who has Alzheimer's disease, because I was scared.
My neighbour popped round yesterday to tell me he'd lost his three-and-a-half foot long, black and white snake, he thinks it escaped through the letterbox.
Near Milton Keynes I met Dr Johnson and David Garrick, who were walking to London; together we admired a shopping trolley in the canal.
And, as so often at PM, we don't know when to stop. iPM always starts with its listeners, but this week the whole show is based on stories from the audience, investigated with the help of the Corporation's finest journalists. It will tackle everything from Spitfires and that missing snake, to ASBOs and Michael Palin in 3D. Your news, told by the BBC allstars.
It's an experiment that we hope to learn a lot from, and we're keen to know what you make of it - so let us know!
New news. Who knew?
