Last week, Andrew Jennings drew praise and criticism for his Panorama report on FIFA. This week, in his first broadcast interview after the programme, he calls UK sports news journalists "the worst in the world" for not trying to beat him to his story. Mihir Bose, former BBC sports editor and Ashling O'Connor of The Times respond to his claim and discuss the challenges of covering sport off the pitch.

On Monday, Jeremy Hunt announced further funding to help bring superfast broadband to every community in the UK. Stephen Carter had the role of encouraging the spread of broadband in the UK when he headed Ofcom and as Labour minister. What does he think of the state of broadband in the UK and the government's ambitions?

And, as ITV marks 50 years of Coronation Street, former producer and ITV executive David Liddiment looks at how the soap has shaped what we watch on TV today.

The producer is Simon Tillotson.
