Always fascinating

But I agree with djcudiw748 that the illuminating guests are diminished by the patronising ego of the host

Great except for host

Please, please, PLEASE move Melvyn on. He makes almost every episode downright uncomfortable. So much potential otherwise.

Quality broadcasting

As the programme was conceived and developed by Melvyn Bragg I think it would be churlish to oust him. I find him an excellent host. He is well prepared by his researchers and invites on genuine academics (not media stars) who know what they’re talking about. He manages the discussions well. It’s an intelligent, informative and interesting listen!
