  1. I might watch this … I recently complained to the BBC about Mr Bragg’s style and tone on his In Our Time programme on Radio 4. He often seems to harry the contributors, especially the female ones. I realise the programme tries to fit a lot in in a short time .. but it is not the he needs to steer the presenters through, but the way in which he does it.
    Anyone else share my views.
    And, why does he mumble so much nowadays …and then seems to rebuke in a headmasterly way contributers who aren’t clear enough.
