Law in Action at 30

To mark 30 years on air, Law in Action invites a distinguished panel to discuss the most significant legal developments of the last three decades. Presented by Joshua Rozenberg.

BBC Radio 4's Law in Action first broadcast on 14 October 1984, presented by a young Joshua Rozenberg.

Much has changed since then: the constitution was reformed; the Crown Prosecution Service founded; the Human Rights Act passed; and Joshua's beard removed.

To mark 30 years of a programme which has consistently and expertly explained the legal world to a general audience, Law in Action is broadcasting a special debate.

We will be asking a distinguished panel - the former Lord Chief Justice Lord Judge, Deputy President of the Supreme Court Lady Hale, and the former DPP Sir Keir Starmer - to discuss the most significant legal developments of the last 30 years.

Presenter: Joshua Rozenberg
Producer: Keith Moore
Editor: Richard Knight.
