Thursdays Planet Normal

Eyes on the road

from Planet Normal | Published 2/25/2021

Lord Grade, former chairman of the BBC and ITV and CEO of Channel 4, dons his spacesuit to join Telegraph columnists Allison Pearson and Liam Halligan on their trip to Planet Normal. He tells us why he's cheering on Laurence Fox's anti-woke crusade, how he's fed up with journalists trying to catch the government out and why diversity of opinion is sorely lacking in the UK media. Also on the podcast: Liam makes the case for extra government funding for catch-up lessons in schools, Allison questions why the UK is in one of the world's strictest lockdowns and one of our presenters tells us why they've come to resemble Cut-Throat Jake!  Allison and Liam will be replying to comments beneath this article on Thursday 25th February from 11am-12pm:| Read more from Allison: | Read more from Liam: | Need help subscribing or reviewing?
