06.01 0106 1) Product Placement: The government has signalled its intention to allow product placement on commercial television and, with the consultation period ending this week, there's been a flurry of arguments for and against the change. Steve Hewlett discusses this with Robert Lindley of Voice of the Listener and Viewer, Claire Heys of independent production company Tiger Aspect and Ian Twinn of the advertisers' body ISBA, which has come out against the changes. 2) 3D TV: As the first 3D television channel is announced in the US, Sky TV shows Steve how its 3D programming could look when it starts broadcasting programmes later this year. 3) Social Media in election campaigns: Thomas Gensemer, of Blue State Media, gives his views on how social media helped Barack Obama's presidential campaign and how that experience might be used in the next UK general election.

13.01 0113 1) Is the BBC still committed to entertainment on television? Four years ago, the government called entertainment 'central to the BBC's mission'. This month, though, it's been revealed that entertainment is not on a list of the Director General's top priorities for the future. Steve asks Jana Bennett, who heads the BBC's TV channels, if there is a change and if Jonathan Ross's departure is a symptom of that change. 2) Media commentator Roy Greenslade gives his views on the future of The Independent newspaper, which is locked into takeover talks with Alexander Lebedev. If the takeover goes ahead, will The Indy become a free paper like Mr Lebedev's London Evening Standard? 3) An announcement is due about who will go through to the next round in the bid to run TV news in some of the ITV regions. Richard Hooper is heading the advisory panel working on the shortlist. Can this process guarantee that viewers will still get local news on ITV? 4) And, with Google announcing it may withdraw from China, we hear what Chinese internet users are saying. 28:05
20.01 0120 1) The BBC Trust has started a year long review into the accuracy and impartiality of the BBC's science coverage, with climate change one of the topics which has attracted controversy.

Steve Hewlett is joined by James Delingpole of The Telegraph, Mary Hockaday who heads the BBC newsroom and Fiona Fox, director of the Science Media Centre. 2) Lord Heseltine has stepped down this month from his role at the magazine publishers Haymarket. He talks about the challenge of competing with magazines linked to television programmes - and ways of making money from a magazine's name even when it is no longer actually printed. 3) And what's really going on with pay TV? Reports have claimed that Sky is to be forced to drop the price it charges for its sports channel.

27.01 0127 1) The BBC's New York correspondent Matthew Price on the story behind his report of a pregnant Haitian woman he drove to hospital, saving her and the baby's life. Plus Dr Nancy Snyderman from NBC, one of the US doctor-reporters who spent more time tending to the injured in Haiti than filing stories. 2) Sir Jeremy Isaacs, Channel 4's first chief executive, tells Steve Hewlett about the phone call he received from the new chief executive, David Abraham, and what they'll be discussing when they go for lunch. Media commentator Maggie Brown gives her views on the challenges ahead. 3) On the day that Apple is expected to launch its new Tablet computer, can it live up to the hype - and the hopes - of the publishing industry?

03.02 0203 1) When Archie Norman appointed the Royal Mail's Adam Crozier to run ITV, he said he would bring 'transformational change'. So what could that change be?

Former editor of The Times Simon Jenkins, and the head of the Cardiff School of Journalism discuss. 2) With BBC pay back in the headlines Steve Hewlett asks the channel controller of another broadcaster if he would reveal details of what he pays ‘talent’. 3) The Guardian Media Group has sold the Manchester Evening News to Trinity Mirror, so will The Observer be next? 28:01

24.02 0224 1) MPs are demanding changes to protect press freedom and standards, but has their report been sidetracked by an obsession with the News of the World phone hacking scandal? And should the Press Complaints Commission be reformed to address MPs' concerns about its credibility? Ritula Shah talks to Paul Farrelly MP of the culture, media and sport committee and Peta Buscombe, chair of the PCC. 2) There is to be a new version of Upstairs Downstairs, made in the UK but paid for in part by US TV. How much do US networks influence the dramas we see on our screens? That's the question for Rebecca Eaton, executive producer of Masterpiece Theatre from WGBH in Boston. 3) Andrew Rawnsley has said the sources for his book on Gordon Brown are '24 carat', but what are the challenges for parliamentary writers who rely on the lobby convention of not naming sources? Veteran journalist and biographer Anthony Howard takes the long view. 4) In a new report, the National Audit Office is widely expected to criticise the BBC for the cost of rebuilding of Broadcasting House in London. Can the cost of prestigious media buildings ever be justified by the value they bring to readers, listeners and viewers? 25:48

10.03 0310 1) Bob Geldof has called for the BBC's head of global news to be sacked, along with two other journalists, over a report on the misuse of aid to Ethiopia in the 1980s. One of those in his firing line, World Service current affairs editor Andrew Whitehead, explains why he stands by the report and one of the groups that distributed relief, Christian Aid, say why they are still so concerned. 2) After almost a week on the front pages, the tabloids have moved on from the Jon Venables story for now. Were they right to insist on the authorities revealing his new identity? And how well did the Ministry of Justice handle the media coverage? Former News of the World editor Phil Hall discusses this with Lorraine Davidson of The Times. 3) BBC3 has been under scrutiny since it avoided the axe in the BBC's strategy review, with calls for it to be closed instead of 6 Music.

Ahead of her exit, she tells Steve Hewlett about the frustration of being undermined by colleagues and how the Guardian could charge for content on its website. 3) Mephedrone or, as it has become known in the media, "meow meow", is to be banned following intense media coverage. But has that coverage been proportional and do the stories stand up to scrutiny? Nic Fleming has been looking at the stories for the New Scientist and the BBC home editor Mark Easton looks at the impact those stories have had. 4) And, in an age when they can be satirised in moments on the internet, are election posters an asset or a liability? Daniel Finkelstein of The Times gives his view. 26:02

Jane Root, former controller of BBC2, talks about her latest venture "America: the Story of Us." 2) Twenty years after the Times took on the Telegraph in the war to become the UK's leading upmarket newspaper, Rupert Murdoch has declared a similar war in New York. This week, his Wall Street Journal has been running local stories in New York, to go head to head with the New York Times. Former WSJ media reporter Sarah Ellison looks at the motivation for this war and Peter Preston, former editor of the Guardian, recalls the difference that competition made in the 1990s. 3) Peter Preston also gives his view on Gordon Brown's microphone gaffe. Why do media-trained politicians still make such fundamental technical mistakes? 4) And Steve Hewlett asks Ben Bradshaw about Labour’s plans for the media should they form a government after May 6th. 28:21
05.05 0505 1) Reports this week claim that allowing children to watch TV in their early years causes long-term harm to their development. But is that what the research really shows?

19.05 0519 Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger and Sunday Times editor John Witherow debate paywalls in front of an audience in the BBC’s Radio Theatre. Should readers have to pay to access newspaper websites? At the Guardian, Alan Rusbridger has ruled out paywalls and warned that rushing to introduce them could see the industry "sleepwalk into oblivion". The Times and The Sunday Times will start charging for access to their websites in June. The Sunday Times will get its own website in a move editor John Witherow describes as "a hugely significant moment for the paper". While the editors disagree about paywalls, they agree about something possibly more significant still. Both see the end of newsprint itself as being almost inevitable and almost in sight. 28:25
26.05 0526 1) The new Times and Sunday Times websites are finally here. Dan Sabbagh, former media editor at the Times, takes a look and Daniel Finkelstein, current executive editor, responds. 2) The General Medical Council struck Andrew Wakefield off the medical register on Monday, for misconduct in relation to his MMR research.

But to what extent is subterfuge an acceptable tool of journalism? The Guardian's Investigations editor David Leigh and Professor Tim Luckhurst discuss. 3) Coalition government might mean new politics but do we need new journalism to go with it? Kevin Marsh editor of the BBC's College of Journalism argues that the media should focus on policy rather than disputes within the coalition. The role of journalists' scrutiny should be to improve the way we govern ourselves, he says. Anne McElvoy Executive Editor of The Evening Standard disagrees. 28:15
09.06 0609 1) Jeremy Hunt MP has announced plans for new local tv stations, testing their viability over the summer. At the same time, he has cancelled plans to pilot replacements for ITV's news in Wales, Scotland and the north east of England. Geraint Talfan-Davies is chair of the Institute of Welsh Affairs think tank - he tells Steve Hewlett the cancellation is a tragedy. The architect of the local tv plans, Roger Parry, explains how they could work and media analyst Claire Enders gives her view on whether they really are viable. 2) Newspapers have been speculating on Christine Bleakley's future, some asserting that she is definitely moving to ITV, others saying that she is staying at the BBC. Sue Ayton, who represented Adrian Chiles for 10 years, looks behind the speculation. 3) Colin Edgar is the editor of the Whitehaven News, widely praised for its coverage of the attacks in West Cumbria last Wednesday.

Just who is responsible for the fact that the duo will no longer be part of the BBC's primetime line-up? And does it really reflect a change in the way the BBC will deal with big name presenters? 3) And as the French national team returns home from South Africa after failing to qualify for the next round of the World Cup - what has the reaction been from their national media? London based French journalist Veronique Forge has been examining the coverage for us. 28:05
30.06 0630 1) Al Jazeera English is to launch on Freeview in the UK, bringing its distinctive approach to an extra 10 million homes. Al Anstey, explains their strategy and challenges what he says are misconceptions about the network. 2) Judgement is awaited in the case of Jon Gaunt, who is challenging an OFCOM ruling after he called a London councillor a "health nazi". If he succeeds, it’s claimed news presenters will have greater freedom to express their views. Kelvin Mackenzie, argues that change is long overdue; for Richard Sambrook, former director of BBC Global News, impartiality is an essential part of news broadcasting. 3) Its rumoured that Google is working on an alternative to Facebook - Emma Barnett of the Telegraph says there is reason to think these are more than rumours. 4) And, from Johannesburg, Owen Gibson of The Guardian talks about how this World Cup has been better for the back pages than the front pages of the tabloids and how the papers have had to adapt their strategy. 28:14
07.07 0707 A big week for the BBC. We have had the annual report and accounts, reports for the commercial arm BBC Worldwide and the World service and the Trust’s initial conclusions on the BBC Strategy review. And after all that what do we know? That the BBC’s 6 Music radio is to be saved from the axe. The man proposing to wield that axe was the BBC’s director of audio and music Tim Davie and he gives his first interview since being rebuffed by the BBC trust. We also hear from Trust chairman Sir Michael Lyons. To help digest all this, Steve is joined by media entrepreneur Peter Bazalgette and media commentator Emily Bell. 27:54
14.07 0714 1) Did the coverage of Raoul Moat and his ultimate demise go too far? US pyschologist Dr Park Dietz says yes and warns it could lead to copycat crimes - media commentator Roy Greenslade says no - and Fran Unsworth, head of BBC newsgathering, explains how the coverage developed. 2) Photographer Marc Vallee claims police misuse the Terrorism Act to interfere with his work: police chief Craig Mackey responds. 3) SunTalk shockjock John Gaunt has lost his court battle with Ofcom over what he said to a local council official during an interview about adoption. So where should the line be drawn between harm and offence and free speech? 28:25

Saad Mohseni, of Tolo TV, tells Edward Stourton what he thinks this means for the media in the country. 3) There has been a lot of coverage since Sunday of a story about 11 year old girls taking oral contraceptives. Dr Petra Boynton of UCL responds to the coverage and says the data tells another story. 4) What is behind the rise of the viral videos and who is making money out of them? Ed hears from M J Delaney who made Newport State of Mind and to Matt Smith of the Viral Factory and David Rowan, editor of Wired magazine. 28:21
11.08 0811 1) 'Crazy' and 'draconian' is how The Sun describes Southampton Football Club's decision to exclude press photographers from its ground. Managing Editor of The Sun Graham Dudman tells Robin Lustig why his paper is refusing to print the name of the club. Southampton FC say they are merely protecting their commercial interests. 2) If you've got a question, why not ask 500 million people for the answer? We look at Facebook's latest idea for connecting us all to each other. 3) We reveal why the media suddenly seems to be awash with stories about a spate of job opportunities in South Australia - were you tempted to apply to be a shark tagger or a penguin home remodeller? 4) And, has media coverage of the trial of former Liberian dictator Charles Taylor fallen under the media spotlight for all the wrong reasons? 28:17

Emma Cox, TV Features Editor at The Sun gives us her verdict. 28:00
25.08 0825 1) "The Web is Dead," or so said Chris Anderson editor in Chief of Wired magazine. Not the internet - that is alive and well - but the web as we know it. His article sparked quite a response much of it claiming he was simply wrong. Steve Hewlett finds out whether he meant what he said. 2) The South African government wants to bring in tighter controls on the media but critics claim " its the most serious threat to press freedom since the persecution of the Apartheid regime". Steve hears from Peter Bruce editor of the South Africa daily Business Day and Moloto Mothapo of the ANC party. 3) On Friday the BBC's Director General Mark Thompson will give the MacTaggart lecture at the Edinburgh TV Festival. In the same speech last year James's Murdoch described the corporation's size and ambitions as "chilling" and claimed it was "incapable of distinguishing between what is good for it, and what is good for the country." How will he respond? Peter Bazalgette and Gillian Reynolds discuss. 27:50
01.09 0901 1 ) When Mark Thompson spoke of "radical change" at the BBC and insisted that he was "up for the fight," in his speech at the Edinburgh TV festival, exactly what did he mean? Steve Hewlett speaks to the BBC's Creative Director Alan Yentob. 2) In that same speech, the MacTaggart Memorial Lecture, the BBC's Director General also said that "it's time for Sky to pull its weight" - Sky's Director of Public Affairs David Wheeldon responds. 3) The BBC's political editor Nick Robinson has written a blog headlined "Blair and Brown - an apology". It's tongue in cheek but refers to the jucier side of what Tony Blair has told us in his memoirs published today. But how much of what we now know - did we not know then? And what does it tell us about political reporting? 4) And after Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp walked out of an interview with Sky Sports after his side lost at the weekend, and Sir Alex Ferguson continues to refuse to be interviewed by the BBC, we ask what value do post-match interviews hold? Steve is joined by Lynne Truss and Guardian sport's writer David Lacey. 28:15
08.09 0908 1) Paul Staines (Gudio Fawkes) is the blogger behind the story of William Hague and his special advisor. Critics describe him as an anti-journalist, un-accountable and a peddler of political soft porn. How does he respond? 2) With a Papal visit imminent and arguments about whether to build a Mosque at Ground Zero in New York, religion is never far from the headlines. But, can a secular media cover such events effectively? And does the media have any hope of getting to grips with questions like - Does God exits? Former religious correspondent for The Guardian Stephen Bates and Baroness Warnock discuss. 3) And the big story of the week. What exactly have we learnt from the New York Times’ allegations about phone hacking at the News of The World, and why is an American newspaper so interested in the goings on at the news room of a British tabloid? 4) Steve Hewlett speaks to professor of Journalism and former tabloid editor Roy Greenslade and Rupert Murdoch biographer Michael Wolff. 28:19
15.09 0915 1) Rupert Murdoch's plans to buy out BSkyB have been questioned this week, with the leak of a report calling for Business Secretary Vince Cable to refer any deal for review. David Elstein, former head of programming at BSkyB and Will Hutton, former editor of the Observer, discuss whether any takeover should be subject to scrutiny. 2) The BBC has lost BBC One controller Jay Hunt and BBC Trust chairman Sir Michael Lyons. Media commentator Maggie Brown gives her view on what this means for the BBC. 3) London's 95.8 Capital FM is to go national, as parent company Global Radio rebrands its local chart pop stations under the Capital name. Chief executive Stephen Miron explains what lies behind the change. 4) The British Film Institute has announced the discovery of 100 hours of tv dramas from the 1960s in an archive in the USA. They include early performances by Sean Connery, Jane Asher and Dorothy Tutin. BFI curator Steve Bryant talks about the tv programmes "Missing, Believed Wiped". 28:15
22.09 0922 1) Following Trust chairman Sir Michael Lyon's decision not to seek a further term of office and news that the BBC offered to freeze the licence fee for the next two years, now we read that the National Audit Office is to be allowed greater access to the BBC books, something the BBC previously went out of its way to avoid. Dan Sabbagh described it on his website Beehive City as a triple whammy and he tells us why. 2) Also, public trust in institutions and professions is in decline. No news there, but new research shows that whilst journalist trust ratings have continued to decline, the last three years have seen those for senior politicians of all parties actually improve. Man bites dog? We hear from the man who has done the numbers. And, he made Chariots of Fire, The Mission and Midnight Express and he is deputy chairman of Channel 4. 3) House of Lords media man David Puttnam gives his views on media ownership, Rupert Murdoch, the BBC, C4 and the UK Film Council. 28:07

Mark Oliver of analysts Oliver and Ohlbaum gives his view on the likelihood of the plans succeeding. 2) Jeremy Hunt, the Secretary of State at the DCMS, has made the encouragement of local TV a flagship policy and has now given more details of how this might work.

Mark Oliver of analysts Oliver and Ohlbaum gives his view on the likelihood of the plans succeeding. 3) And Conservative peer Lord Fowler joins the debate on how the BBC should be run, calling for the BBC Trust to be revamped to give Director General Mark Thompson more support at what he says is a crucial time for the BBC's future. Lord Fowler has been chair of the Lords communications committee. 28:06
06.10 1006 1) Last week the Radio Times accidentally released the names of the final twelve X Factor contestants before the programmes were broadcast, so confirming the names that had been circulating on the internet since early September. It was reported that Simon Cowell was "very, very disappointed" by the mistake but it is unlikely he would have been disappointed with the huge viewing figures that followed. How far can broadcasters control the leaks and rumours, to boost interest while not spoiling viewers' enjoyment? That's the discussion between David Liddiment, former director of ITV, Emma Cox of The Sun and Lisa McGarry of Unrealitytv.com. 2) TalkSport's head of programmes Moz Dee talks about taking on Russell Brand for his first weekly radio programmes since he left Radio 2 over "Sachsgate". He also tells how he secured the radio rights for the Rugby World Cup from under the nose of the BBC. 3) And Chris Wheal tells Steve what it was like to receive press attention when his nephew was killed by a fall this summer. Even though he made it clear that the family only wanted to speak through him, journalist after journalist contacted his sister, which made her feel threatened and harassed. He has been helping the Press Complaints Commission find ways to prevent this happening to others. 28:20
13.10 1013 1) There has been a major outbreak of collective letter writing in media land. First the one to Vince Cable about Rupert Murdoch's plan to buy the 60% of Sky he does not own and what the writers say is a serious threat to media plurality. But should the BBC have signed it? Ben Fenton broke the story of the letter for the Financial Times and he is joined by Phil Harding, former editor of R4's Today programme. 2) And then there is a second letter, from newspaper editors to the Financial Services Authority, over new guidelines that, it is claimed, will lead to much less truth being told, or at least reported. The FSA says there is nothing new here but the Telegraph's head of business coverage, Damian Reece, says it leaves the FSA looking as if it is "engulfed in fog of paranoia". 3) The legendary Claire Rayner has, sadly, passed away. What of the art of the agony aunt, which she did so much to foster, in the modern age? Sunday Times agony aunt Sally Brampton discusses Claire Rayner's impact with Anna Raeburn. 4) And the Chile mine rescue may be compelling viewing, but can the same be said for the commentary? How are the rolling news channels filling the space between the moments of joy? We will be dropping in throughout the programme before catching up with Sky's head of international news, John McAndrew. 28:10
20.10 1020 1) After the chancellor George Osborne's announcement on the funding of the BBC, Steve Hewlett asks BBC Trust chairman Sir Michael Lyons if this really is a good deal for an independent BBC or, as some claim, the day the BBC became a state broadcaster. 2) Media commentator Dan Sabbagh looks at how the deal was put together and early signs that parts are already unravelling. 3) Danny Cohen is the new controller of BBC1. Former controller Lorraine Heggessey looks at the challenges he faces. Can viewers expect a taste of his former channels aimed at younger people, BBC3 and E4? 4) And, today, Reporters without Borders releases its annual survey of press freedom around the world. Why, in their view, does the UK still not make the top ten - and where do they stand on the Pentagon's call for journalists to stop reporting leaks from Wikileaks? 28:26
27.10 1027 1) Conrad Black is on bail in the USA while he appeals against his convictions for fraud and obstruction of justice. If he succeeds, he may be free to return to the UK sooner than expected. Talking to Steve Hewlett by phone from America, Lord Black explains why he might return to newspapers and shares his thoughts on his former rival Rupert Murdoch and on the role of a newspaper proprietor. Former Guardian editor Peter Preston offers his prediction of what Conrad Black will do on his return. 2) The Independent has launched "i", a 20p quality newspaper which is said to be aimed at the time poor with "all you need to know in the time you have". Andrew Mullins is the Independent's managing director and one of the team that came up with the idea and, with advertising exec Alan Brydon of MPG Media, discusses the new papers prospects. 3) And, with the front page of the Times announcing "advertising soars" as one of the reasons to be hopeful, Steve's guests give their view on signs for optimism. 28:12
03.11 1103 1) ITV's chairman Archie Norman has said ITV's caught up in a ratings rat race, that the demand for a mass audience "drives us to the lowest common denominator every time." At the same time, Daybreak with Adrian Chiles and Christine Bleakley has lost enough of the mass audience to raise concerns about the programme's future. Is there really anything wrong with ITV's schedules and what, if anything needs to be done to fix them? 2) Times editor James Harding talks to Steve about the number of people paying to read The Times online. Do the figures provide a clue for other newspapers looking to make money from their journalism online? 3) And Private Eye editor Ian Hislop discusses the future of investigative journalism, speaking to Steve before last night's Paul Foot awards. 28:08
10.11 1110 1) This week the BBC Trust, while broadly praising BBC 4, has said the channel needs to make a bigger impact on the majority of viewers who do not watch it. The trust made similar comments about 6 Music earlier this year, before the BBC announced plans to close that radio station. Does controller Richard Klein have any fears for BBC 4's future? 2) There are claims that media reports of allegations of corruption at Fifa may harm England's bid to host the 2018 World Cup. One suggestion is that journalists should put their findings to Fifa's ethics committee rather than publish. The claims follow reports from the Sunday Times Insight team last month and ahead of a BBC Panorama report expected later this month. Richard Caborn, former minister and ambassador for the bid, discusses this with Andrew Hogg, formerly editor of Insight. 3) And why are Ann Widdecombe and Wagner so popular with Strictly Come Dancing and X Factor audiences, when the judges say their performances are technically so much weaker than their competitors? What role to the judges play in raising their popularity? Emma Cox of The Sun and The Telegraph's Neil Midgley discuss. 28:16
17.11 1117 1) Tom Bradby tells Steve how he secured the interview with Prince William and Kate Middleton yesterday for ITV and whether there were any ground rules. Simon Kelner of the Independent, meanwhile, explains why he chose to avoid the royal engagement story on his front page, when all the main broadsheets and tabloids have so much coverage....and so does the Independent's digested read, the "i". 2) Lorraine Heggessey is a former controller of BBC1 and, until this year, chief executive of Talkback Thames. While an employment tribunal is hearing claims relating to the change of presenters at the BBC's Countryfile, when it moved from daytime to primetime, she tells Steve how broadcasters approach changes like this. Do presenters have to be younger, or more telegenic, or more "immersive"? 3) This week the US media company NBC Universal International has bought the UK independent production company Monkey Kingdom which makes The Charlotte Church Show among others. It is the latest in a series of leading independents bought up by overseas businesses, including Tiger Aspect, Shed Media and Carnival.

New York media commentator Emily Bell and FT journalist Tim Bradshaw discuss whether an ipad-only paper could be a viable alternative to newspapers. 3) Clare Sambrook has recently won two investigative journalism prizes, the Paul Foot Award and the Bevins prize for her investigation into child detention in the UK. She discusses working for free and her part in securing a promise from the Liberal Democrats to stop detaining the children of asylum seekers. 24:08
01.12 1201 1) Michael Grade was chairman of the BBC and then ITV and is now heading to the House of Lords. Last week, he suggested that Channel 4 should drop its adverts and that licence fee payers should take over its funding. As a new Conservative peer, what changes would he try to bring about in the TV industry? 2) With traditional journalism, many of this week's stories from Wikileaks could have commanded their own headlines and front page coverage for days. How far does the volume of stories work affect their impact and the ability of journalists to call the relevant people to account. In effect, is Wikileaks burying its own bad news? Columnist Ian Birrell discusses this with Janine Gibson, editor of the Guardian website. 3) And, as Virgin Media launches its new video on demand service, TiVo, Steve asks chief executive Neil Berkett whether there really is a demand for this service. 28:22
08.12 1208 1) Last week, Andrew Jennings drew praise and criticism for his Panorama report on FIFA. This week, in his first broadcast interview after the programme, he calls UK sports news journalists "the worst in the world" for not trying to beat him to his story. Mihir Bose, former BBC sports editor and Ashling O'Connor of The Times respond to his claim and discuss the challenges of covering sport off the pitch. 2) On Monday, Jeremy Hunt announced further funding to help bring superfast broadband to every community in the UK.

In his report, commissioned by the government, he outlines how local television news would be funded. He talks to Steve Hewlett about the possibility of local television news at the touch of a digital button. 3) With changes to the BBC and television news on the horizon, media commentators Maggie Brown and Neil Midgley are in the studio to explain the implications of the BBC review and Nicholas Shott's report. 28:14
22.12 1222 1) As revelations about Vince Cable's thoughts on Murdoch owned News Corp's bid for BSkyB come to light, Steve Hewlett looks at The Telegraph's role in reporting the story and asks where this leaves News Corp's bid. 2) It's nearly thirty years since Rupert Murdoch bought The Times.

Graham Stewart, author of The History of The Times: The Murdoch Years and Ben Fenton, Media Correspondent for the Financial Times, discuss the deal and the parallels with Murdoch's current bid for BSkyB. 3) Upstairs or Downton? The creator of Upstairs Downstairs has suggested that ITV's successful Downton Abbey borrowed too heavily from her drama.
