The Today Programme – NYE 2011 - 31st December 2011

Stew was invited to guest edit Radio 4’s The Today Program on the 31st December 2011.

Every year the Today programme hands over the editorship to leading public figures in the week between Christmas and New Year. Editing the programme on New Year’s Eve is the comedian Stewart Lee.

His programme looked into mythical narratives, selling-out and super-size comedy.

Guests included Oliver Cromwell, AS Byatt, Mark E Smith, Tim Minchin, Alan Tomlinson (trombone), and Billy Childish.
