The BBC's anniversary fest continues. (I write as Radio 3's Record review bangs on about 60 years). Also celebrating 60 is local opt-out BBC Points West, which is recording a special "Have We Got News For You" debate on the future of local news at the Arnolfini on 27 October.

Jonathan Dimbleby is hosting, with guests columnist Jane Moore, journo prof Roy Greenslade and BBC Director of News, James Harding. Perhaps Jonathan can ask James about BBC local radio cuts for the year ahead - put on hold by the DG as he contemplates this promise by new Chairman, Sir David Clementi: "Later this year, we will also present plans for enhancing our local radio services - celebrating their 50th anniversary."
