Journalist Simon Hoggart chaired the TV programme a number of times
Newspaper review show What The Papers Say is being revived for BBC Radio 4, it has been announced.
The station is planning a 12-show run for the general election and will make the comeback a permanent one if it proves a success.
The programme, which ran for 52 years on television, was eventually dropped in 2008.
It featured journalists reviewing the press with actors reading extracts from the papers in over-the-top voices.
The programme was originally made by Granada for ITV, then moved to Channel 4 when the broadcaster launched in 1982.
It went to BBC Two in 1989, and was the second longest-running TV show only to Panorama when it came off air.
Radio 4 controller Mark Damazer said that the format would remain largely untouched.
He said that a roster of presenters had yet to be determined but added he was keen to find a permanent slot for the show after the election.
The date of the first programme will depend on the timing of the general election.
