Each year, the Today programme hands over the editorial reins to five public figures, giving them a chance to decide what goes on the programme between Christmas and New Year.
The programme broadcast on 30th December was edited by writer and editor Richard Ingrams.
For his programme, Andrew Hosken investigated
the case of James Hanratty, who was hanged for murder in 1961.
Richard Ingrams' friend, journalist Paul Foot, had always been convinced of Hanratty's innocence, despite DNA evidence to the contrary. But new evidence suggests that the DNA could have been contaminated.
He also chewed the fat with
at the Coach and Horses pub in Soho.
Richard has long been interested in
