As part of Director-General Tony Hall’s arts push, the BBC is camping out at Britain’s biggest book festival, Hay. The idea, newly appointed head of arts Jonty Claypole recently told Radio Times, is to “reach audiences who might not necessarily have thought they were interested in Hay”. So as well as extensive coverage on Radio 3 and 4, The One Show is taking a holiday.

Alex Jones and Chris Evans will be shooting the breeze with well-read guests in the festival’s garden. I hope they remember to pack wellingtons and a sturdy umbrella: blustery downpours are as frequent a visitor to this picturesque Welsh market town as literary lions.
