The director of the London 2012 Festival and the Cultural Olympiad has defended her organisation against accusations that its remit is too broad.

Speaking on Radio 4's World at One, Ruth McKenzie told how the main ambition of the project is "to engage with everybody; every community in the country".

Coverage of the Cultural Olympiad's Big Noise event airs on BBC 4 tonight at 2100 BST.
