Today is BBC Radio 4's long-running early morning news and current affairs programme. It consists of regular news bulletins, serious and often confrontational political interviews, in-depth reports, Thought for the Day and Puzzle for Today. Today has been voted the most influential news programme in Britain in setting the political agenda, and in February 2017 recorded its highest ever audience figures, reaching 7.45 million weekly listeners (from 7.1m last quarter and 7.03m last year). In an era of fake news, echo chambers and significant shifts in global politics, the role of Radio 4's Today programme as the most trusted guide to the world and news around us is more important than ever.
