The Blog Prog

Word has it that BBC Radio 4 is recruiting staff to work on a new programme called (possibly slightly condescendingly) 'The Blog Prog'.

Details are sketchy, but the programme will apparently aim to 'recreate the best of the debate from the blogosphere', or words to that effect.

I'll be intrigued to see how they manage to recreate blogosphere debates via a one-way mass audio broadcast medium. Perhaps by getting bloggers and their commenters to come into the studio and read out choice slabs of sophistry?

I also wonder what bloggers will make of it. The last time BBC Radio ventured into blog territory, the results didn't go down too well...
