Petit saut

A gentle gavotte sees Owenna Griffiths move from the World At One, on Radio 4, where she's bedded in Sarah Montague, to looking after PM - and a new permanent presenter tba. Owenna could use "Honourable" - dad is Conservative life peer Brian, Baron Griffiths of Fforestfach. Husband is Daniel Clarke, Deputy Editor of Newsnight - the couple met at Newsround up in Manchester, when Owenna was Editor. She has a production credit for "Absolute Genius with Dick & Dom", which will scare people who believe that PM may go for double-headed presentation.

At the World At One, Victoria Wakely returns to front-line programme-making. She looked after Today up until the arrival of Sarah Sands, and has spent the time since then on 'projects' - code for looking for ways to making savings of £80m in News in the years ahead. Presumably that's all sorted.
