Jon Holmes Mob Rule

Sunday 25 July
6.30-7.30pm BBC RADIO 5 LIVE (Correction 14 July)

In a special one-off programme, Jon Holmes dips into the stream of public consciousness that spews over "Have Your Say" and "Comments" pages of the web to reveal what "the people" would do to solve the world's problems?

These days the state of the world is analysed, discussed and dissected by its most voracious consumers – the public. Its myriad problems are sorted and solved by "The Mob", who are never backwards in coming forwards with their solutions and shouting via Have Your Say websites, letters to newspapers, texts to TV shows and calls to radio stations around the globe. Not to mention the vented views that fill up the blogosphere, the Twittersphere and all manner of multiplatform outlets ending in the word "sphere".

Jon Holmes and guests will circle the globe, collecting the thoughts, hopes, dreams and completely odd offerings of public opinion in a quest to find out whether "the people" really know best.
