Listener Editor Nomination The Today Programme
BBC Radio 4
Room G630, Stage 6
How much control will we have? You'll have about half the programme to play with. You will have a lot of editorial freedom but you will have to operate within the BBC's producer guidelines. Today producers will help you throughout the process
What sort of ideas should we come up with? Whatever you think is interesting and newsworthy
How much time will it take? We'd need a couple of meetings with the team early on and regular contact with the team leader - by telephone at least - throughout December. When we get close to the date of transmission we'd hope you'd be in touch with us daily
Will we need to be in the studio when the programme's on air? Ideally, yes
Where is your studio? Shepherd's Bush, London
Will we appear on air? Yes. We always interview our guest editors at the end of their own programmes
Will we have our names read out at the end? Absolutely
Highlights from today's running order will be posted here
