Roger Bolton goes behind the scenes at The World at One and hears listener reaction to Simon Mayo’s upcoming departure from BBC Radio 2.

After only a few months on air, the BBC Radio 2 Drivetime show presented by Simon Mayo and Jo Whiley is set to end, following Simon Mayo's decision to leave the station altogether. Listeners give their views and radio critic Gillian Reynolds reflects on this latest high profile presenter departure.

Earlier this year, Sarah Montague swapped jobs with fellow BBC Radio 4 presenter Martha Kearney - Sarah became the host of The World at One, while Martha joined the early risers at Today. Roger visits the programme to discuss the move with Sarah and gets an insight into the decision-making that goes into the programme on a daily basis.

Last week’s Sunday Worship, Postcards from the Land of Grief, was a reflective and personal journey from loss to hope, presented by the Reverend Richard Littledale. Listeners who were struck by its words and music talk about the programme.
