LAW in Action presenter Marcel Berlins has survived a revamp of the long-running radio show.
The Lawyer reported last month that the BBC was considering axing Berlins as part of the controversial scheduling shake-up at Radio 4.
But, after testing out other candidates, the BBC has decided to stick with Berlins, but it does want to make the programme more consumer oriented. "It will hopefully sound somewhat different. We would like to make it more consumer friendly," said producer Charles Sigler.
The programme has been moved from its evening slot on Friday, to Thursday afternoon, when more non-lawyers will be listening. It will be repeated on Sunday evening. Berlins has presented the show for nine-and-a-half years.
