"Thought For the Day"
Oct 31st, 2017, 1:51pm
 
Questions are being asked in very high places.. so what do you think?


Should the three minute slot in Radio 4's "Today Programme" be dropped?

Like it, or loath it, the 3 minute slot has been broadcast for over 40 years at about 0745.

Due to new OFCOM rules- changes may be imminent.

What do you think- are you bothered?

Why is it being dropped--are listeners leaving in droves or is it just to suit editorial needs?

If the latter-that's good-they can focus and raise their game. Perhaps they should  also drop the sports section at 7.25 which thoroughly clutters. Imagine BBC2's Newsnight with a section on sport?

Voting in this poll is still open.

Vote and see what your fellow ex-colleagues thought.

"A BBC Radio 4 spokesperson told Christian Today: 'Thought for the Day is editorially looked after by the BBC's Religion and Ethics team in radio and features speakers from the world's major faith traditions. There are no plans to make changes to it.'"

But what do you think? Is it boring, and does it interrupt the programme?
