Advice to would-be interviewees on how to survive a ‘John Humphrys interview’.
John Humphrys has presented the Today programme on Radio 4 for more than twenty five years. Taking us through his career from leaving school at 15, joining a local paper as a cub reporter, and then his meteoric rise through the BBC – opening news bureaux in the USA and South Africa, anchoring the Nine O’Clock News, and now presenting Mastermind. John talks us through a typical day on Today, the logistics of breaking news on air, and gives advice to would-be interviewees on how to survive a ‘John Humphrys interview’.
