BBC Radio 4’s iconic discussion programme comes to Stroud. Described as ‘a topical discussion programme in which a panel of personalities from the world’s politics, media and elsewhere are posed by the audience’ the show has been just that for 70 years since its first broadcast from the Guildhall in Winchester on 12th October, 1948. Hosted by David Jacobs from 1967 to 1984 and most memorably by Jonathon Dimbleby from 1989 to 2019 the show is one of Radio 4’s flagship programmes and remains hugely popular.
