The producer Karen Holden and it is presented by Harriet Gilbert. She works with Rebecca Armstrong and Dymphna Flynn. She did however speak about Saturday Live — they feature big celebrity guests, celebrity memoirs — big names are their bread and butter however the people they feature have to be interesting in their own right, not just famous.

This is pre-recorded and, like some of the Open Book features, can overlap with another programme elsewhere on R4. They overlap with midweek in that way, and can swap back and forth.

The week in radio and podcasts: The Beautiful Brain; Losing Earth

The author has to be available at 9am on a Saturday morning if they are coming on live, however some features can be pre-recorded. Louise Corley is the best current contact.

They tend to prefer non-fiction, but they will break their own rules. In terms of non-fiction they are not necessarily looking for the biggest name, but the most interesting story. They cannot follow Newsnight or Channel 4 news, or elsewhere on Radio 4.

PLEASE be honest if your author is appearing elsewhere as it just causes annoyance when it gets found out and will result in your author being dropped.

Adam said that he responds better to thoughtful targeted pitches.

They get thousands of emails every day, and a generic mailshot is not going to cut it. He is aware that they can sometimes irritate in terms of moving stuff, dropping stuff, late cancellations, but when everything comes together it can work out really well — eg Michael Bond wrote them an exclusive letter from Paddington which they had read by Hugh Bonneville which caused a huge response.

They will also think outside the box to feature books in unusual or off-shoot ways, a recent example is a book called Window Shopping behind the Iron Curtain, which is photographs of shop windows in the former USSR and East Germany, which they are going to make into a full feature with former shop keepers from those countries, talking about their memories of commerce under communism — even though the book itself has already been covered in the Guardian, what they are doing is slightly different and will hopefully make fascinating radio.

Book of the Week gets approx 3. For Book at Bedtime and Book of the Week, there are various in house and independent suppliers, who are well known to publishers — however not all of them have many weeks or particularly chase up new work. BotW always tries to serialise on or close to publication — they feature 52 books a year and programme on a wide variety of topics, but a good narrative voice is pretty essential. With the exception of titles like The Goldfinch or Bone Clocks, most books will run at 10 eps so anything over pages MAX will really struggle.
