Comedian praises 'calmness' of Radio 4 announcers


Two of the best known Radio 4 announcers, Harriet Cass and Charlotte Green, have announced that they will be hanging up their headphones next year.

The comedian Alistair McGowan, of the Radio 4 sitcom Continuity, said that listeners feel they "know continuity people... they guide us through our lives."

He praised the warmth and the calmness that both announcers provide.

"They don't give you too much drama and make you feel that everything is all right with the world," he told Shaun Ley on The World at One.
