Was Today presenter Nick Robinson right to tell the prime minister to 'stop talking'? Listeners react, and Matthew Parris discusses the art of the political interview.

'Stop talking!'; that is what Nick Robinson, as presenter of Radio 4’s Today programme, told the prime minister on air last week. Was this a necessary tactic or a piece of typically pompous presenter rudeness?

In the first Feedback of the new series, listeners give their reactions, and Matthew Parris discusses whether the political interview is now dead in the water.

And the commissioner of comedy for Radio 4 defends Richard Osman’s the Birthday Cake Game, after complaints from listeners. Roger Bolton asks Sioned Wiliam will it get recommissioned, and how did she decide on who was to be the new presenter of Just a Minute?
