The show returns for a third series from the end of this month on Sunday evenings.

Presented by Tim Samuels, the programme offers a man’s perspective on issues ranging from health and relationships to the economy and politics. The first part of the new series on 29th April will feature the results of a survey exploring how men’s psyche and behaviour are really being affected by the current economic situation, while we’re told there is a unique perspective from a female to male transsexual. Former Radio 1 Sunday Surgery doctor Mark Hamilton also returns as the show’s voice of men’s health issues.

BBC Radio 5 live Deputy Controller Jonathan Wall said: “We have had a great audience response to the first two series, and Tim and the team have come up with some fascinating topics for series three. I am sure this will create thought provoking and compelling radio.”

John Ryan left the BBC last month after a long career with the corporation, which included him heading up its local radio stations in Northampton, Leeds and Manchester. He recently set up his own independent production company called ‘2ZY’.
