Roger Bolton speaks to Richard Burgess, the BBC's UK news editor, about the royal engagement and goes behind-the-scenes at Radio 4's consumer affairs programme, You and Yours.

Roger Bolton with listeners' views on BBC radio programmes.

Earlier this week Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement, followed by their first joint interview with the BBC presenter Mishal Husain. But should the presenter have highlighted Ms Markle's mixed race background? We hear your views on the royal engagement coverage.

In a fast-moving situation, how do you discover what is really going on? The BBC's Southern Africa Correspondent Andrew Harding tells us how he reported on recent events in Zimbabwe.

Also Radio 4's recent dramatisation of Graham Greene's novel Stamboul Train included some of the author's original anti-Semitic passages. Radio 4's Commissioning Editor for Drama and Fiction Jeremy Howe tells us why he decided not to edit out some of those remarks.

And Roger goes behind-the-scenes at Radio 4's consumer affairs programme You and Yours, sitting down with presenter Winifred Robinson to hear more about how the programme interacts with its listeners.

Producer: Kate Dixon
A Whistledown production for BBC Radio 4.
