"Pure Quality, give it a try"

You really should give this radio station a try, although it has a middle aged, middle class image this is not the case. They have updated the schedules over the last year or so to give it a wide ranging appeal.

The news and current affairs programmes are unbiased,well presented and they are not afraid of asking tough questions of politicians etc who appear on them. There are no easy rides on this one, not with John Humphries extracting the truth.

The plays / soaps are always enjoyable, well produced.Often low budget but the quality of the writing and production shows through.

Comedy is a strongpoint of the station, many graduate to tv such as Alan Partridge, John Shuttleworth etc. They are not afraid to take risks in this area. Most of it is very good and the content suprising for this tye of station given it's staid image.

There is generally something for everyone with radio 4, it makes a nice change fom the usual stations who continually repeat the same top 10 singles.
