Is Radio 4 too Middle England?

29 Oct 2007

Forty years after its birth, what can the content and the demographic of Radio 4 and its listeners tell us about the state of the nation? Is the home of The Archers irretrievably Middle England, a relic from another era? What does its continued success tell us about modern Britain?

Speakers: Mark Damazer, Radio 4 controller; Natalie Schwarz, director of radio at Channel 4; Miranda Sawyer, radio critic for The Observer; Simon Elmes, author of And Now on Radio 4. Chair: Antonia Quirke, author of Madame Depardieu and The Beautiful Strangers.
