(Telegraph) Radio 4 guest editor Diana Athill to take aim at Rowan Williams

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Diana Athill, literary editor and award-winning memoirist, was....[recently] announced as one of this year’s “guest editors” of Today.

The five invitees take the helm of the programme for one day each between Christmas and New Year, with Miss Athill this year’s first guest on December 27.

Unlike the voices who infuriate the ungodly in the Thought for the Day slot each morning, including Indarjit Singh and the Rt Rev Tom Butler, Miss Athill is a non-believer.

Read it all.

Yawn - and a very happy Christmas from the BBC.  Let’s see how she manages to stir things up between the news and the shipping forecast, as an atheist.

The pneumatic Jordan might have brightened things up, if that is the correct term.  Oh well.

Mind you, were Jordan to interview the Archbishop of Canterbury, that would definitely be worth watching, although challenging on the radio.
