BBC commissions “Men’s Hour” for Radio 5 Live 1


Woman’s Hour has been happily broadcasting on BBC Radio 4 for over 64 years, and now it’s to get a much younger sibling aimed at men.

Men’s Hour will air on BBC Radio 5 Live and be hosted by award-winning journalist and presenter Tim Samuels.

Initially broadcasting for just six weeks, starting this coming Sunday, 18th July at 7.30pm, it will take a look at the emotional challenges of relationships and life as well as including a hint of irreverent manly chatter.

“Less about leering at ladies and more concerned with how to maintain monogamy, this is the men’s magazine women have been waiting for.”



Each week, Men’s Hour will feature guest interviews and regular features such as Questions You Daren’t Ask Your Doctor and Midlife Music Crisis. Tim Samuels will be joined by leading males from the world of entertainment, sport, politics, media and an on-hand shrink as they leave their comfort zones behind them – familiar people talking about unfamiliar things.

Choreographer and star of Pineapple Dance Studio star Louie Spence will also be joining Tim as a regular weekly guest.

Tim Samuels said, “It’s about capturing the spirit of when good mates sit around nowadays – amidst all the banter you can actually open up about what’s on your mind without being ripped apart. We’re celebrating modern man’s mix of swagger and neurosis.”
