An interesting week for Radio 4 in the media
Head of Interactive, Radio 3
The Today Programme is always in the news. The Telegraph runs with the Voice of the Listener and Viewer's gong for Today (and Radio 4 in general). In the same paper Tim Walker wonders why Today didn't send Naughtie or Humphrys to the Tory conference in Manchester.
Guardian radio reviewers are now 'curating' the stuff - providing links to iPlayer so you can listen to the programmes they review. It had to happen. And, of course, it's almost all Radio 4.
On her blog, Joanna Leahy, an 'Irish nomad in Norway', was surprised by a call from
The World Tonight PM. She was interviewed about Norway's status (according to a UN report) as best place to live on the planet.
Back in The Telegraph, Jod Mitchell reviews four Radio 4 documentaries, including last week's Black men can't swim and of presenter Matt Blaize he says: "he did what a documentary-maker should do - investigate a single question and suggest a straightforward answer."
And, to finish, Twitter - as usual - is full of clever thoughts about Radio 4 programmes. Don't take my word for it - search for yourself.
