Amazing

I love the subjects and the depth they go into - just right for a short run

Once great, now in decline as it loses its distinctiveness

Maybe it’s harder to find subject matter. Maybe it’s a change in producers or presenter power at work. Whatever it is, this show is slipping. Fast. More and more often it sounds like an anaemic R4 current affairs doc. There are already plenty of those. Why be so redundant? This show built it’s reputation on its quirky and creative approach. It needs to go back to its roots.
