Presented by Roger Bolton

Can anything be done to make Radio 4 comedy appeal to a wider audience? The writers of Ed Reardon's Week and North by Northamptonshire, along with Radio 4's comedy commissioning editor, discuss.

The BBC's Complaints system is being overhauled. Find out more about how you can have your say on what needs to be done to make it better.

It's been five months since BBC local radio listeners first complained about the strange clicks, crackle and pops they hear when listening online. So why is it still not fixed? The man in charge tries to explain what's gone wrong.

And the producer of Start the Week explains how she goes about slashing a third of the programme every week for the shortened evening repeat.

Producer: Karen Pirie
A Whistledown production for BBC Radio 4.
