About BBC Radio 4

Listen online to the internet radio of BBC Radio 4 live, which has more than 10 million weekly listeners, thus the second most popular radio in the United Kingdom right after the BBC Radio 2. The station almost completely leaves out music programmes, so works with almost solely speech related programmes, it pursues a deeper insight into a more thoughtful viewpoint through world politics, domestic politics, journalism, and keep up the diversity with refreshing comedy, and gripping readings and drama, but the arts, science, and history topics are also the parts of the talkative programme structure. The station offers shipping forecasts, news, and weather reports regularly. At night, from 1:00am to 5:20am, a selection of BBC World Service is broadcasted.
The breakfast show of BBC Radio Four is the "Today" programme, which is the most popular in the schedule of the broadcaster. On weekdays from 6am to 9am and on Saturdays from 7am to 9am Today brings national and international news and affairs, sports, and weather under the scope. Furthermore Today has a three-minute slot around 7:45am for the "Thought for the Day", which is an inspirational thought pack from religious thinkers. Most of the existing religions are represented in this block, and most times the broadcasted thought has some context with one of the main events of the day. "Today" programme's presenters are Justin Webb, Martha Kearney, Mishal Husain and Nick Robinson.

BBC Radio 4 's slogan: "Intelligent speech, the most insightful journalism, the wittiest comedy, the most fascinating features and the most compelling drama and readings anywhere in UK radio"
