Sir: John Humphrys is not the only radio presenter who interrupts and denies his interviewees the chance to air their views to the listeners, ("Labour at war with Today", 13 December). It is getting worse.

I was desperate for information about the new student loan scheme and was delighted when I tuned in to an interview with Baroness Blackstone by Nick Clarke on The World at One. There I was, pen poised to write down the information hotine number which Lady Blackstone had promised us when, to my horror, Nick Clarke interrupted her.

The BBC has become obsessed with antagonism and analysis to the detriment of information.
