Guest editors for Today show

BBC Radio 4 is hiring a range of guest editors for the Today programme between Christmas and New Year, including Dame Stella Rimington, former Director-General of MI5 and Damon from Blur. They join previous Today programme guest editors including Bono, Stephen Hawking and Yoko Ono.

Other guests will include Professor Peter Hennessy — historian and author of The Secret State and Sir Martin Evans — winner of the 2007 Nobel Prize in medicine for his work in stem cell research.

Today Editor, Ceri Thomas said: "Guest editors never fail to surprise us with the breadth of their interests and the quality of their ideas and we've got a fantastic line-up this year."

Like last year, one edition of the programme will be edited by a group chosen from the audience. Today listeners were invited to form teams and apply and the successful entrants are a group from Dyfed Powys Police.

Guest editors are responsible for between a third and a half of their programme's output. However Today's duty editors, producers and reporters are on hand to help to turn their ideas into high-quality radio journalism and make sure that material chosen is newsworthy and meets the BBC's Editorial Guidelines.
