520 8  Radio Four has been described as "the greatest 
       broadcasting channel in the world", the "heartbeat of the 
       BBC", a cultural icon of Britishness, and the voice of 
       Middle England. Defined by its rich mix, encompassing 
       everything from journalism and drama to comedy, quizzes, 
       and short-stories, its programs--such as Today, The 
       Archers, Woman's Hour, The Hitchhiker's Guide To the 
       Galaxy, Gardeners' Question Time, and The Shipping 
       Forecast --have been part of British life for decades. 
       Others, less successful, have caused offence and prompted 
       derision. Born as it was in the Swinging Sixties, Radio 
       Four's central challenge has been to change with the times,
       while trying not to lose faith with those who see it as a 
       standard-bearer for quality, authoritativeness, or simply 
       'old-fashioned' BBC values. In this first major behind-the
       -scenes account of the station's history, David Hendy--a 
       former producer for Radio Four--draws on privileged access
       to the BBC's own archives and new interviews with key 
       personnel to illuminate the arguments and controversies 
       behind the creation of some of its most popular 
       programmes. He reveals the station's struggle to justify 
       itself in a television age, favouring clear branding and 
       tightly-targeted audiences, with bitter disputes between 
       the BBC and its fiercely loyal listeners. The story of 
       these struggles is about more than the survival of one 
       radio network: Radio Four has been a lightning rod for all
       sorts of wider social anxieties over the past forty years.
       A kaleidoscopic view of the changing nature of the BBC, 
       the book provides a gripping insight into the very nature 
       of British life and culture in the last decades of the 
       twentieth century.
