  6. Earworms

    Michelle Martin Michelle Martin

    My name is Shaun Keaveny, I am a music broadcaster, and a long-term sufferer of a sometimes debilitating condition. It is devastatingly virulent, indiscriminate, and can strike the patient down at any time, anywhere. It is the Earworm.

    An earworm is a parasitic little fragment of music that burrows...

    A bunch of attention seekers would be one way of describing the More or Less team.

    With the Financial Times' Undercover Economist Tim Harford at the helm, we go...

    Michelle Martin Michelle Martin

    Looking for a new hobby? Try science.

    One of the reasons that we launched our search for the BBC's Amateur Scientist of the Year is because science isn't really seen as a hobby.

    Science is generally viewed as something that's done in a lab...

    Paul Murphy Paul Murphy Senior Producer, A&Mi

    Next week sees the start of a season of programmes about the brain on Radio 4. It covers 5000 years of understanding (and misunderstanding) of what the brain is and what it does from the ancient Egyptians to recent advances in neuroscience. It takes in the myths...

    Deborah Cohen Deborah Cohen

    It sure was a trip back in time. Could it really have been 1995 when I had interviewed Steven Pinker about his work on the mistakes young children make in language - "taked" instead of "took", and "hidded" rather than "hid"? And now Pinker is probably one of the best known psychologists...

    Ruth Brooks Ruth Brooks

    Taking part in So You Want to Be a Scientist? last year was one of the most rewarding and enjoyable experiences of my life.

    I learnt so much more than I had anticipated, not just about my chosen research subject - homing instinct in snails...

  13. In Our Time: To download, keep and listen whenever you want

    Wednesday 14 September 2011, 13:50

    Melvyn Bragg Melvyn Bragg

    I was surprised but obviously delighted when, seven years ago, I was told that In Our Time was to become the first BBC programme to be podcast - but, to be honest, I didn't quite know what it meant at the time. It turned out to mean a very great deal. Thus strikes the law of unexpected consequences once...

  14. Radio 4 Extra: The making of Bradbury 13

    Monday 13 June 2011, 11:36

    Michael McDonough Michael McDonough

    I decided as a very young man in the late 1970s to someday adapt Ray Bradbury's stories into the audio format.

    I was very influenced by the sound in the movies back then, and having grown up near Hollywood I met Ray Bradbury through...

    I was promised freshly-brewed coffee and croissants at the end of their last run but when I went to Feedback to talk to R4 listeners - alas - I got a lovely welcome but just the usual BBC water... I did, however, get a chance to answer some listeners' questions and to put some of my early thoughts...

In addition to listening to the programme live on Radio 4 from 1630 today you're invited to join a live chat about the programme and...

    Scientist 600

    Monday's Infinite Monkey Cage is going to be a pretty big deal - recorded live in front of an audience of science and comedy fans at the Royal Society's See Further Festival this weekend. And here's the neat thing: during Monday's transmission of the programme (at 1630 on Radio 4) we're hosting a live...
