He only comments on shows being broadcast in the evening and at the weekend. I think he would be much more dismayed if he listened to the daily diet of almost wall to wall soap opera-ish drama, "comedy", and quiz shows that are now being broadcast.
Day-time Radio 4 is as lacking in intellectual content as daytime television.
He is wrong to say that favourite shows and presenters have not disappeared. Medicine Now, Science Now, and The Afternoon Shift are three of my favourites that have gone forever.
