One of the programmes I most miss from radio past is In the Psychiatrist's Chair. It is a mystery to me why this format, which gave a riveting insight into the minds of numerous public figures, has no effective replacement today. No-one who heard them could forget the sessions with David Irving, say, or Les Dawson. And it's not as if no-one needs a shrink, as any radio phone-in will testify. Could it be, perhaps, that we just know ourselves too well? Take as evidence Grayson Perry and his teddy bear.
