Melvin Bragg is an outstanding broadcaster

Having followed Melvin’s career for more than 40 years I am a great admirer of his presentation skills, intellect and his down-to-earth, no-frills, get-to-the-point attitude.
He doesn’t allow guests to ramble (and they would well know that before they accept the offer to present), he wants the core of the story to be clearly outlined in layman’s terms for us all to understand (because no matter who you are you cannot be an expert on the entire gamut of topics that Melvin covers).
Melvin falls within the realm of great British broadcasters which includes the likes of Alistair Cooke, David Attenborough, Terry Wogan et al, he’s a national treasure.
Outstanding work Mr. Bragg.

Great show and terrific host

The guests are fantastic and the host must help them work through often very complex topics in a short time. Not all are succinct - I don’t find him a problem with male or female experts at all.

Good show

Good show but the host is way past his use by date. He has become a bore and his interruptions to the experts is becoming increasingly irritating. Time for a change.
