  • Perhaps misnamed.

    A significant number of stories about domestic politics, and a sprinkling of global news. Still, always enlightening news.

  • No back catalogue?

    The actual program is excellent and as a young person I actually get all my news here instead of from the radio or TV. more

  • Not quick enough!

    Even though the program is excellent, this is a very perishable news item. It needs to be posted no more than one hour after the actual broadcast to be useful. So far they are failing dismally.
