Transform ‘Thought for the Day’ into a philosophy slot
by Nigel Warburton
The BBC, and particularly BBC radio,does an excellent job presenting philosophy in interesting ways to a large audience. That doesn’t mean it’s doing everything that it could however. My idea for the BBC going forward is that it should transform the rather tired ‘Thought for the Day’ into a philosophy slot reflecting on wider issues raised by recent news. That would wake a lot of people up.

Why vote? We will feed in readers' favourite ideas to the government's consultation on the future of the BBC, and profile them heavily in the media. We believe the debate over the BBC's future is too narrow and focused on cuts - it's missing strong, positive ideas about what public broadcasting can and should be. By voting, you can have your say on what those ideas should be - and if you've got your own, share them with us→
