    Is the BBC impartial? What is Impartiality anyway? On Feedback this week, Roger Bolton talks to the author of the BBC Trust's impartiality report, Stuart Prebble.

  2. Feedback: Local Radio, Science and Home Planet

    I have, of course, heard of win win situations, but this week's decision by the BBC Trust to ask (ie order) the Executive to reverse most of the cuts it planned in local radio looks like a win, win, win situation.

    It's a win for local radio supporters who will see...

  3. Feedback: The BBC Trust

    This week on Feedback I talked to a member of the BBC Trust, the body which replaced the BBC Governors, about impartiality in journalism.

    It took my mind back to the rather fraught period around 1980 when I was editor of the Panorama...

  4. On the way out - Sir Michael Lyons on Feedback

    "Events, dear boy Events"!

    That was the apparently unflappable Prime Minister, Harold MacMillan, discussing what most concerned him. He meant the crises that arrive out of clear blue skies and changed the political weather overnight. Well we have had plenty of 'events' during this latest run of Feedback...

  6. Tim Davie responds to the Trust's review of Radio 4

    In the Radio Times, BBC Radio boss Tim Davie has written a response to the substantial public debate about the Trust's review of Radio 3, Radio 4 and Radio 7.

    He endorses the suggestion that Radio 4 broaden its audience:

    The idea of making more people aware of Radio 4 makes sense: there are so many programmes...

  7. Does it matter where a Radio 4 programme comes from?

    David Liddiment, the BBC Trustee who led its review into Radio 4 among other stations, must be wondering what has hit him.

    No sooner had he published the review last week than newspaper columnists, the odd BBC presenter, and a lot of listeners attacked him for trying to fix something they don't believe...

  8. CPLH and widening Radio 4's appeal - BBC Trustee David Liddiment on service licences

    Editor's note: this week's Feedback focused on the English language, on Royal visits to Ambridge an on the conclusion of the BBC Trust's review of Radio 4 - SB.

    There are many incidental pleasures to be derived from the latest BBC Trust Review, a copy of which is now available on its website.

    For example...

  9. The BBC Trust's review of service licences for Radio 4 and Radio 7

    The BBC Trust's service licence review was hugely positive for Radio 4 and Radio 7. I have seen some of the listeners' responses on Radio 4 to the Trust. We are widely considered a 'national treasure' and the appreciation for what we do is humbling. The Trust's reseach received a record number of responses...

    Editor's note: the BBC Trust today announced approval for some important changes at the BBC, several of which affect Radio 4. In this blog post, which appears in full on the About the BBC blog, Roly Keating outlines plans for an extension to access to archive content, much of which will come from Radio...

    Editor's note. Every week we're publishing one item from Radio 4's accountability programme Feedback. This week's item is of more general interest and concerns the campaign to save 6 Music - SB

    "What is the point of protesting to the BBC? No producer or manager ever admits that they are wrong."

  12. The BBC Trust's Thought for the Day ruling

    The Thought for The Day ruling by the BBC Trust was never going to be greeted with universal applause - or anything like it.

    In a nutshell the Trust says that restricting Thought for the Day to speakers who espouse a faith does not breach the BBC's obligation to impartiality - but the Trustees say that...

    Yesterday something small but significant happened. Instead of disappearing from iPlayer when its 7 days were up, the first Episode of The Complete Smiley - The Spy Who Came in From the Cold stayed put. Which means that you can go back and listen to it before listening to Episode 2.

    The unusual behaviour...
