More than four million people tuned in to watch live coverage of Baroness Thatcher's funeral.
Long-running BBC1 debate show Question Time is to expand to radio.

There's a difference between Nick Griffin showboating for votes on national television and Le Pen exposing her views to the ridicule of a few curious students
For too long the BBC has been a bubble. Will it produce flagship shows relevant to the vast majority of people in Britain - or dwindle into cultural irrelevance?
Mr Starmer will examine why the Crown Prosecution Service failed to act on evidence about Savile’s activities passed to it in 2009 by Surrey Police
One of Britain’s few black women judges, who shot to prominence six years ago with a “misery memoir” about her tough early life, has been arrested and questioned by police.

Germaine Greer's comments about fathers and their daughters show she has little to offer modern feminism
Despite Coalition tensions, there's still no sign of discord between the Cleggerons. Sam Cameron and Miriam Clegg made a convincing show of sisterhood after No 10's International Women's Day reception on Tuesday. The pair were later spotted together in the stalls at Wyndham's Theatre for a performance of Clybourne Park, named Best New Play at this week's Olivier Awards.

Anyone with a heart during Thursday's Question Time on BBC1 will have found themselves toying with the remote, pondering whether the act of watching constituted an intrusion into private grief.

The last time I saw Shappi Khorsandi was in the studio of Soho Theatre, but her accession to playing the main theatre space is one of the smaller boons to her career in recent years. The Anglo-Iranian comic has enjoyed coverage on TV shows ranging from Friday Night with Jonathan Ross to Question Time and seen her book A Beginner's Guide to Acting English win her new fans away from the comedy scene. Her act itself, however, makes a sporadic case for its own betterment.
Brown, Cameron and Clegg do battle before the nation this week. Michael Cockerell on a spectacle that's been 46 years in the making
