04.01 0104 1) The Daily Mail carries the Stephen Lawrence case over 21 pages today, a mark of the significance the story had for the paper and, according to many including the Mail, the significance the paper had to the story. Brian Cathcart has been following the Lawrence case from the start and written on it extensively and, through Hacked Off, is a campaigner for media reform. When the media are under such scrutiny in the Leveson inquiry, could awareness of the Mail's long campaign be ideally timed, showing the difference newspapers can make when they break the rules? 2) Meanwhile, a report by Dame Elizabeth Filkin into the Metropolitan police and the media has warned officers over links with journalists. Sean O'Neill is the Crime Editor for The Times, and as such he deals with the police on a day-to-day basis. What will Filkin's recommendations mean for his work? 3) Rupert Murdoch joined Twitter on New Year's Eve, closely followed by somebody claiming to be his wife, Wendi Deng. Both accounts were verified by Twitter, but the Deng account has since been revealed as a fake. So what happened? And does Murdoch's interest in the site mean he's thinking about investing in it? Emma Barnett, Digital Media Editor at the Daily Telegraph, has been following developments. 4) And the editor of the Financial Times, Lionel Barber, gives his views on the reporting of the economy. What, if anything, went wrong before and what role do newspapers have in warning of financial hazards ahead? 28:02
11.01 0111 Steve Hewlett presents a topical programme about the fast-changing media world including, today, Netflix and the future of TV: 1) Netflix, the video streaming service which enables customers to watch films and selected TV programmes over the internet, launched in the UK on Monday. Reed Hastings, the company's founder, claims that 'on demand' services like Netflix represent the future of TV. For the past 70 years or so, TV viewing habits have been dominated by schedules set by TV networks. With the rise of catchup and on demand services like the BBC iPlayer, ITV Player and Channel 4's 4OD, viewers have been able to take more control over what they watch and when they watch it. So is Netflix really the beginning of the end for traditional TV? Or will it struggle to make an impact in the UK market, where several catchup and on demand services are already well established? Reed Hastings makes his case to Steve, who discusses the issues with Tess Alps from the TV marketing organisation Thinkbox and Geoff Slaughter from comparison website SimplifyDigital. 2) Steve is also joined by broadcast consultant Stephen Price for an overview of the last year's viewing figures. Who's going up, who's going down and what does that tell us about longer term viewing trends? 3) The Leveson Inquiry into the culture, ethics and practices of the press has resumed after the Christmas break. This week it's been the turn of the newspaper editors to have their say, from Dominic Mohan of The Sun to Lionel Barber of the Financial Times.The Financial Times' chief media correspondent Ben Fenton has been following developments. 28:11
18.01 0118 Steve Hewlett talks to James Harding, editor of The Times and Alan Rusbridger, editor of The Guardian. Harding reflects on his evidence to the Leveson inquiry this week, Rusbridger on the falling sales which have forced The Guardian to reduce "pagination." Supplements have been folded into the paper and the sport has returned to the back page instead of being in a separate mini-paper. We also hear why Associated Press has opened up a bureau in North Korea and we discuss the growing controversy over intellectual property on the internet. 28:26
25.01 0125 1) Last Autumn BBC management proposed a wide-ranging series of cuts which would see the Corporation's local radio services cut by 20%. As the BBC Trust prepares to publish the results of its consultation on the plan, Steve talks to Lord Patten, Chair of the Trust. Will the cuts go ahead? And if not, what can the BBC do instead to make the savings? 2) Plus, Ed Vaizey, Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries, on the Government's plans for the communications sector, to be laid out for consultation early this year. 25:12
01.02 0201 1) Last week the Chairman of the BBC Trust, Lord Patten, announced he's started looking for a successor for the current Director General, Mark Thompson. The following day Thompson reportedly confirmed he'll step down after the Olympics. Is he going voluntarily or is he being pushed? And what qualities will his replacement need to have? Steve discusses BBC Director General succession with former DG Greg Dyke. 2) The Sunday Times magazine is celebrating its 50th anniversary this weekend. Steve looks back on half a century of iconic photojournalism with the current editor Sarah Baxter and photographers Stuart Franklin and Chris Floyd. 3) Lord Hunt of Wirral, the new chairman of the Press Complaint Commission, took the stand at the Leveson Inquiry on Tuesday. He used the opportunity to set out his plans for a reformed 'PCC 2'. But are they any good, and will they satisfy victims of press misbehaviour? Charlotte Harris is a lawyer who's represented several victims of phone hacking and had her phone hacked herself. She joins Steve and Media Editor at The Guardian, Dan Sabbagh, to discuss Lord Hunt's proposals. 4) And in a week which has seen four people from The Sun arrested as part of an ongoing police investigation into corruption, Dan stays on to discuss the prospects for the launch of a Sun on Sunday. 27:45
08.02 0208 1) When Facebook filed for an initial public offering last week, there were suggestions it could be valued at around $100 billion. Since then, more questions have been raised about the challenges it faces in justifying that value. Olivia Solon, associate editor at Wired magazine and James Ball, data journalist at the Guardian, discuss the prospects. 2) The BBC was thrust into Scottish politics at the weekend, when it was reported that it cancelled an invitation to First Minister Alex Salmond to take part in coverage of the Calcutta Cup rugby match at Murrayfield. The BBC adviser who vetoed the appearance, Ric Bailey, responds to claims he was bowing to political pressure. Broadcaster Lesley Riddoch and former BBC editor Phil Harding discuss why the BBC could face further problems when covering Scottish politics, ahead of a possible referendum on independence. 3) And, as many of the victims of phone hacking settle their claims today, Duncan Lamont of Charles Russell solicitors explains what impact this could have on the several investigations into what went wrong at the News of the World. 28:17
15.02 0215 1) Following the arrests of more journalists at the Sun over the weekend, Geoffrey Robertson QC explains why handing over the details of journalists' e-mails to the police may violate a moral and legal duty to protect sources. 2) After more journalists at the Sun were arrested over the weekend, the Sun's associate editor Trevor Kavanagh accused police of a "witch-hunt". But has the police investigation gone too far? Prof Brian Cathcart and Peter Preston discuss the latest developments. 3) Last week the BBC's director general Mark Thompson admitted that there aren't enough older women on television and radio. But is anything being done to address the problem? Former controller of BBC 1 Lorraine Heggessey and journalist and broadcaster Joan Smith discuss women on screen. 4) Following the news of the death of veteran Royal correspondent James Whitaker, we hear from Ingrid Seward of Majesty Magazine and photographer Arthur Edwards who both knew and worked with him. 28:15

Sun associate editor Trevor Kavanagh, media commentator Roy Greenslade and analyst Claire Enders discuss its prospects and its impact on the newspaper market. 3) And, following last week's discussion on women in the media, Rowan Atkinson contacted the programme to question whether anti-discrimination laws had any place in the creative industries. Lorraine Heggessey has been invited back to see how far she supports his view. The full text of his email is on The Media Show's web page. 28:07
29.02 0229 1) As James Murdoch steps down from News International to expand the international TV side of the business and as the police claim there was a "culture of illegal payments" at the Sun, what next for the Sun and the newborn Sun on Sunday? Ben Fenton, media correspondent of the Financial Times and Sarah Ellison of Vanity Fair discuss the latest news and what this means for News Corp. They are joined by Nick Davies who has just won the Paul Foot Award for campaigning journalism for his breaking stories on phone hacking. 2) Last autumn the BBC invited radio executive John Myers to review the planned changes to local radio which, broadly, would cut output rather than management. He tells Steve why it should be the other way round. 3) Media analyst Theresa Wise looks at ITV's figures, out today. The broadcaster wants to move away from its reliance on advertising to pay for programmes. What signs are there that this is happening? 28:10
07.03 0307 1) This week Dame Elizabeth Filkin's been telling the Leveson Inquiry about claims of improper relations between police and the press, including suggestions that some senior officers exchanged information to keep their private lives out of the papers. What impact could her recent report on police/press relations have on this and, based on what we've heard from the Inquiry this week, does she see senior officers as a greater problem than the junior ones? 2) Lord Birt was BBC Director General from 1992 to 2000. As the search continues for a successor to the current DG, Mark Thompson, what qualities does he think the candidates need and what are the main problems that she or he will face? You can hear Greg Dyke's thoughts on this on The Media Show on 1st February. 3) And, following this programme's coverage of the debate about women on TV, what are the prospects for the latest campaign? Broadcast magazine's calling for women to make up at least 30% of the experts used on news programmes and, so far, Sky News and Channel 4 News have pledged their support. The BBC's head of diversity, Amanda Rice, discusses this with Broadcast's editor Lisa Campbell. 28:19
14.03 0314 1) The Voice launches on BBC1 next week, a few weeks ahead of the usual launch date of ITV's Britain's Got Talent. This year, though, BGT's been brought forward and the two programmes will clash. Neil Midgley has been looking into how this happened and what's at stake for the broadcasters. 2) James Murdoch's written to the Commons committee investigating phone hacking at the News of the World, reasserting that he has not misled Parliament while sharing responsibility for not uncovering wrongdoing earlier. Why has he written this now, without being asked and what hangs on the committee's delayed report? Channel 4's political editor Gary Gibbon and Guardian media editor Dan Sabbagh discuss. 3) Lord Hunt is the chair of the Press Complaints Commission which, he announced last week, is closing down to reform. He says he has the encouragement of Lord Leveson to develop a new model for self regulation - which Lord Leveson has clarified is not the same as endorsement. Lord Hunt tells Steve how he thinks a new PCC could work. 4) And Emma Barnett, the Telegraph's digital media editor, looks at Mashable, the technology and social media news site which CNN is said to be thinking of buying for $200 million, just a few years after a Scottish teenager started it up in his bedroom in Aberdeen. 28:17
21.03 0321 1) The Controller of BBC 1, Danny Cohen speaks to Steve Hewlett about The Voice UK. 2) As headhunters draw up the job spec for the Director General vacancy, what issues can the next DG expect to face? 3) The Times has won a libel ruling from the Supreme Court, what are the ramifications for the press generally? 4) And we hear from editors at this years Press Awards. 28:14
28.03 0328 1) Almost a year after the furore over superinjunctions, there is a joint Lords and Commons report on what should be done to safeguard privacy. Among the recommendations is a call for search engines such as Google to do more to limit potential breach of court orders, with legislation to back that up if needed. Max Mosley has been calling for tighter control and he discusses this with John Kampfner, the outgoing director of Index on Censorship. John Whittingdale MP chaired the committee behind the report and Steve questions him over the findings on privacy and press regulation. 2) BBC Panorama has been reporting on claims that a NewsCorp business, NDS, hacked into rivals' software in the pay-TV business in the UK and Italy and the front page story in the Financial Times today widens this to Australia. NDS denies any wrongdoing. Stewart Purvis, formerly of ITN and Ofcom, gives his view of where, if anywhere, the story is going. 3) And there's a legal threat to The Only Way is Essex, ITV's "dramality" show, from the people behind a pilot programme, Totally Essex, which they say TOWIE's makers lifted from them. TOWIE's producers, Lime Pictures, say it's entirely their own work. Lawyer Rebecca Swindells outlines the issues when trying to protect any rights in a TV format. 28:22
04.04 0404 1) How much will BSkyB and Sky News miss James Murdoch after his resignation yesterday and what is the bigger picture for the Murdoch family's NewsCorp? Are the interests of the family and the shareholders diverging? That's the discussion between media analyst Mathew Horsman of Mediatique, US National Public Radio media correspondent David Folkenflik and former Guardian editor Peter Preston. 2) The Leveson Inquiry reaches the end of its second stage today, focussing on whether the relationship between the press and police acts in the public interest. It comes after concerns that some former Met Police officers became too close to staff at the News of the World. Sean O'Neill of The Times and Anne Pickles of The Cumberland News discuss how working relations with police have changed since the News of the World closed last July. Peter Preston looks ahead the next stage of the Leveson Inquiry later this month, when news proprietors and politicians will be cross examined. 3) And what is riding on the success of Britain's Got Talent and The Voice? Should Simon Cowell be concerned if The Voice becomes the most talked about singing talent show while The X Factor is off air? Colin Robertson, The Sun's TV editor, gives his views. 28:09
11.04 0411 1) Paul Staines ("Guido Fawkes") has been praised and criticised for publishing the leaked Motorman files relating to News International this week. These files appear to show the names of journalists who asked private investigator Steve Whittamore for information on hundreds of people, most of them not public names, along with the names of those people. Qualified praise comes from campaigners such as Hacked Off who say the files should be published but with the names of the public concealed, while unqualified criticism comes from the Information Commissioner Christopher Graham. Steve Hewlett talks to all three - Staines, Graham and Hacked Off's Brian Cathcart. 2) Facebook's to buy photo sharing programme Instagram for $1billion. a little more than a year since it started up. The Telegraph's Emma Barnett looks at the reaction and at what the next steps will be. 3) The BBC Trust has just published the job specification for the next Director General which, among other details, says that editorial background and commercial acumen would be "nice to have" but not "must have". Former BBC trustee and news editor Professor Richard Tait asks what kind of candidate the headhunters are looking for. 28:16
18.04 0418 1) Steve Hewlett questions Keir Starmer DPP on his new public interest defence guidelines. How much reassurance can journalists draw from them in their day to day work. Do they make it more or less likely that a jury would support investigative journalists even if they break the law? 2) How significant are this week's changes at the Johnston Press papers and the closure of Manchester's Channel M tv station? Some of the Johnston papers are going from daily to weekly and Channel M stopped work this week. Prof Tim Luckhurst is a former editor of the Johnston Press's paper The Scotsman and Ruth Spratt is former MD of Channel M and the Manchester Evening News and they discuss whether these are milestones on the way to a more secure future for local news - or not. 3) The Times leader on Monday called for this weekend's Formula 1 race in Bahrain to be cancelled. Ed Gorman, the paper's deputy news editor and former F1 correspondent looks at the PR drive behind the event and at calls on the media to boycott coverage. 4) And how does Simon Cowell come out of this week's serialisation of Tom Bower's unauthorised biography? Celebrity agent Jonathan Shalit gives his view. 28:02
25.04 0425 Steve Hewlett canvasses reaction to today's evidence from Rupert Murdoch with Ben Fenton of the Financial Times and Sarah Ellison, formerly of the Wall Street Journal and now contributing editor of Vanity Fair. Steve traces the rise of the Murdochs - and politicians' interest in them - from Margaret Thatcher onwards, with former cabinet member Lord Fowler, former Guardian editor Peter Preston and Claire Enders of Enders Analysis. Moving on to the BSkyB takeover that dominated yesterday's coverage of James Murdoch's evidence, the panel are joined by Steward Purvis, formerly of OFCOM. Are the controls on media ownership, which the Murdochs have challenged over the decades, as relevant now as they were before the rise of the internet? Should politicians be taken out of decisions about media ownership? 28:15
02.05 0502 1) Just a day after MPs say Rupert Murdoch is not fit to run a major international company, satellite broadcaster BSkyB posts big profits. It won't have escaped NewsCorp's attention that, if all had gone according to plan last summer, it would now own all of BSkyB and would now have all those profits to itself. In the current political climate, what are the prospects of NewsCorp launching a new bid for the 61% it does not already own? Mathew Horsman of Medatique and Theresa Wise discuss the future of BSkyB and whether NewsCorp will sell if buying all the shares becomes too problematic. 2) Ashley Highfield is the chief executive of Johnston Press and tells Steve how he sees local paper surviving in the digital age. Later this month, some of Johnston's long-standing daily papers are going weekly. 3) And Mihir Bose looks at the treatment the new England manager Roy Hodgson can expect from some newspapers simply because he is not the papers' favourite, Harry Redknapp. 28:10
09.05 0509 1) BSkyB chief executive Jeremy Darroch gives Steve Hewlett a rare interview on his strategy for Sky, including investment in programmes and importance of Premiership football rights - and addresses some of the stories surrounding Sky including its relationship with Rupert Murdoch and rivalry with the BBC. For further context, there was a discussion of BSkyB's recent strong financial report in last week's programme. 2) Film director Michael Apted has been closely connected to the "Up" series on ITV since working on World in Action's "7 Up" in 1964.

16.05 0516 1) Channel 4's chief executive David Abraham discusses the channel's ratings and revenues. Does the channel still need to find a replacement for Big Brother, does it need horse racing and how does the pay of C4's chief executive compare to that of the next BBC director general? 2) Tim Bradshaw, digital media correspondent of the Financial Times, discusses the potential pitfalls of the Facebook IPO on Friday. 3) And Lorraine Heggessey and Colin Robertson discuss what, if anything, needs to be done to turn around The Voice after its ratings slide.

23.05 0523 1) The organisers of the Eurovision song contest have been criticised by human rights campaigners for allowing the event to be held in Azerbaijan, despite concerns about lack of press freedom. The director general of the European Broadcasting Union, Ingrid Deltenre, defends the EBU against these criticisms and explains what it is doing to support public service broadcasting. 2) Tessa Jowell MP has been giving evidence to the Leveson Inquiry this week. She tells Steve how she felt when she was first told her phone had been hacked - and why she accepted the claim at the time that this was the work of one rogue reporter. 3) And David Elstein and Claire Enders discuss today's announcement that Sky faces no action over its strong position in the TV film market, despite the complaints of rivals. They also look ahead to tomorrow's Leveson evidence from Adam Smith, the special adviser to media secretary of state Jeremy Hunt. 28:15
30.05 0530 1) The editors of the Mirror and Sunday Mirror lost their jobs this morning, ahead of the papers' move to a seven day operation. Ben Fenton of the Financial Times looks looks at why Trinity Mirror has made this decision and why now. 2) Former Paralympic swimmer Giles Long tells Steve how he came up with the new graphics for Channel 4's Paralympics coverage, which aim to demystify the system for classifying athletes. 3) Yesterday the CPS explained why it would not prosecute Guardian journalist Amelia Hill over allegations her stories about the phone hacking investigation came from confidential police sources. Lawyer Susan Aslan of Aslan Charles Kousetta LLP talks through the implications of that decision for working journalists. 4) And Mary Ann Sieghart of The Independent and former Guardian editor Peter Preston discuss Tony Blair's appearance at the Leveson Inquiry this week. Can news and comment be separated in the way he suggested and, if it can, should it be? 28:10
06.06 0606 1) At its peak the BBC attracted almost 17 million viewers for its Diamond Jubilee coverage but some have described parts of it as 'lamentable,' 'tedious' and 'inane'. Alan Yentob the BBC's Creative Director responds to those criticisms. Ian Hyland TV critic for the Mail on Sunday shares his view, and Michael Lumley an executive producer for the coverage of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer's wedding, reveals some of the challenges inherent in covering such large scale events on TV. 2) YouView is officially in launch phase. The internet television service - backed by the BBC, Channel 4, 5 and BT, amongst others - promised a new way of watching TV. But have a serious of delays left it trailing its competitors. BBC Media Correspondent Torin Douglas outlines the history and Theresa Wise of Accenture considers its future. 3) And the battle to become the next Director General of the BBC is gathering pace. One candidate in particular - Ed Richards - is attracting attention because of his links to the Labour Party. Anne McElvoy speaks to The Guardian's Dan Sabbagh. Presenter: Anne McElvoy 28:11
13.06 0613 1) As the situation in Syria deteriorates, the BBC's Paul Wood and CBS's Clarissa Ward discuss the risks of reporting undercover from the conflict zone. Both received the David Bloom prize this weekend at the annual Radio Television Correspondents' Association awards in Washington for their reporting in Syria.

What impact might last week's Jubilee pageant coverage have on the prospects of some of the candidates to replace Mark Thompson? 3) And how straightforward would it really be to control media ownership in the way floated this week at the Leveson inquiry? Labour leader Ed Miliband said yesterday that he didn't believe one person should control 34% of the newspaper market, but how much influence is too much could anyone agree on the best way to measure it? Former Ofcom partner Stewart Purvis and media analyst Claire Enders discuss this. 28:11

Anne McElvoy of The Economist and Professor Brian Cathcart from the Hacked Off campaign discuss whether the inquiry really does have the "chilling effect" on the media which some claim and whether the inquiry's response to the Mail on Sunday's story is proportionate. 3) And Steve talks to Mark Damazer of St Peter's College, Oxford, about the variety of voices on the BBC. A report from Ofcom this week said there's a potential risk that people who consume the BBC's services don't get a wide enough range of voices and suggests the BBC Trust should monitor this. Mark Damazer is a former controller of Radio 4. 28:25
27.06 0627 1) How well did the BBC cover the Arab Spring? The BBC Trust commissioned a report from Middle East expert and former UN director of communications Edward Mortimer who found much to praise but also had some constructive criticism, detecting the absence of a central strategic brain overseeing the coverage. He explains what he thought the BBC could have done better and Stephen Mitchell, BBC deputy director of news, responds. 2) With the news this week of plans to split the NewsCorp business into entertainment and publishing companies, what's the view of the UK papers from NewsCorp's home in New York? Sarah Ellison's been following the Murdoch family interests since her time at the Wall Street Journal and extensively since with Vanity Fair and gives her reaction to the latest developments. 3) And the rights to show the 2016 Olympics are up for auction this week, with sealed bids being opened on Friday.

18.07 0718 1) MPs have been grilling the BBC over the way it contracts its presenters, leading to allegations such as that on the front of the Daily Mail this week: "148 BBC stars avoiding tax". Conservative MP Steve Barclay was one of those questioning the BBC and he tells Steve where his concerns lie. Bal Samra, the BBC's director of business affairs, responds. And, in a week when the BBC and its commercial arm BBC Worldwide have published their reports, analyst Theresa Wise asks whether Worldwide could be doing more to contribute to the BBC's income for the benefit of licence fee payers. 2) The British Olympic Association has had to reject thousands of applications for press passes. One of those surprised to find themselves among the reject pile was The Voice, "Britain's favourite black newspaper", which believed it had assurances from Seb Coe that it would be allowed in to cover the events. Now, after some lobbying and a pass becoming available today, it has a permit to cover track and field. Elizabeth Pears of The Voice tells the story and Ashling O'Connor, who helped distribute the passes, explains how they decided who to include in the shortlist. 3) And Yahoo has a new chief executive, Marissa Mayer, straight from Google.

Join Steve Hewlett and his guests in the West Midlands to find out more. 28:24
