Quotes

A BBC spokesperson said: "Today has a very loyal audience and listening figures traditional hover around 7 million a week, but in this quarter across Radio 4 there has been a small dip in the weekly reach."
"We have looked at both sides of the story," he said. "We know that our documentary is not going to change farming habits tomorrow . . . What we want is to generate as much discussion as possible."

..."It might be problematic if we're forming these kind of judgements based on these rather fleeting impressions," Hartley told BBC . "Particularly in today's world where we only might see one picture of a face on social media and have to form our impression based onon that."
