Dancing On The Edge
There are some weeks when, frankly, it’s a bit of a struggle to find something new in the television schedule that I can recommend to your attention. And then there’s this week. Dancing On The Edge (scheduled for 4 February on BBC Two) is a big, shiny,...
Radio Reviews: 20 July
As I type these words, I am listening to Iain Purdon reading the last news bulletin from Bush House, being vacated by the BBC World Service after 72 years. I visited once, years ago, and my main recollection is of the overwhelming brownness of its...
Radio Reviews: 13 July
First things first, we must mark the sad passing of Eric Sykes. Although best known for his gloriously whimsical and surreal TV work with Hattie Jacques, he was, in the golden age of radio comedy, just about the best scriptwriter in the business. He...
Radio Reveiws: 29 June
The proposed cutbacks in BBC local radio sadden me hugely. The best local and regional radio presenters connect with their listeners on a level that those on the network can only dream about. When I moved to the East Anglian coast a decade ago, I...

Let's hear it for the nice chaps... The airwaves aren't full of them, but there are still some clever gents out there Even though I moved away from the capital nearly a decade ago, I've always tried to keep up with Danny Baker's shows on BBC London....

The history of TV in six hours? On radio? Can it work? Sometimes... Since stepping down as executive chairman of ITV in 2009, Michael Grade has reinvented himself as a documentary maker. His surveys of variety and music hall for BBC Four were patchily...
Radio Reviews: 17 August
Radio exists to educate, inform and entertain. It did all three at once on last week's edition of The Film Programme, with an aside about the month Ivor Novello spent in prison during the Second World War for fiddling his petrol coupons. It transpires...
Radio Reviews: 10 August
If I ever host a radio phone-in, the first topic I'll want to discuss is whether the people who give their opinion on such programmes should be allowed access to telecommunications equipment. Mean-spirited, ill-informed and never troubled by...
Radio Review: 14 September
The announcers on BBC Radio 4 are a big part of what makes the network special. So when I heard the news that Harriet Cass and Charlotte Green are leaving next year, having taken voluntary redundancy, I nearly dropped my mug of coffee in shock. I live...
Radio Review: 26 April
In recent weeks, this column has become something of a whistlestop tour of my record collection. First it was Wally Stott, then it was Tom Lehrer, and now it’s Ella Fitzgerald. It’s not my fault. It’s all down to radio types making programmes aimed...
Radio Review: 19 April
Whenever idiots claim that Americans have no concept of irony, I offer Tom Lehrer and David Letterman as the case for the defence. Lehrer has been one of my heroes since I first heard his LPs when I was a sixth-former. If you can believe this, someone...
Radio Review: 12 April
I own a lot of LPs. Not as many as John Peel had but, when it came to moving house last year, it felt like more than enough. Some of them are special and wonderful. Others are terrible old rubbish. Over the years, charity shops have kept me supplied...
Radio Review: 4 January
The Guardian parliamentary sketch-writer, the late Norman Shrapnel, was once asked why he never socialised with politicians. He replied that it might spoil the purity of his hatred. It’s an amusingly extreme version of a conundrum that critics of all...
Bringing joy to the world
If, at any point, you find yourself moaning about the rubbish on television over the festive season (and having looked at the schedules, I really wouldn’t blame you), there’s always the wireless. The best news for discerning listeners this Christmas is...
Radio Review: 27 September
When I became an alternative comedy nut in the 1980s and abandoned many of my oldschool comedy heroes, I never lost my love for Les Dawson, a down-to-earth surrealist and a cheerfully vulgar intellectual. When the chance arose to write a biography of...
Time for another festive set of comedy mind-bogglers. This year, they come in fi ve loosely themed rounds. Please disregard the fact that the ‘Places’ round is disproportionately about licensed premises. The following questions have been declared...
Radio Review: 30 May
In the normal run of things, a journalist challenging a politician shouldn’t be a remarkable event. In terms of news values, it’s very much dog bites man. However, I’ve got so used to people who should know better and try harder indulging in chummy...
Radio Review: 23 May
Some things are better on the radio and one of them is the Eurovision Song Contest. No disrespect to Graham Norton, who’s done a grand job replacing Sir Terry Wogan on the TV, but if you want insight and wry humour, Ken Bruce’s Radio 2 commentary is...
Radio Review: 16 May
This week’s random local radio encounter comes from BBC Radio Bristol via BBC Somerset, heard briefly in a car crossing Minchinhampton Common before the signal was lost on the descent from Tom Long’s Post. Steve Yabsley was interviewing Clive Wilson,...
Radio Review: 9 May
If there isn’t a department at the BBC dealing solely with programmes about the BBC, there should be. On TV, W1A has just finished, and chums inside Broadcasting House assured me that everything that seemed outlandishly comic was actually thoroughly...
