Nigel Shafran has made a film called ‘Today Everyday’ about the BBC Radio 4 Today programme.
BBC Radio 4’s flagship news and current affairs programme Today is the most popular programme on Radio 4 – with over seven and a half million listeners a week. It was launched in late October 1957, and – as part of it’s sixtieth anniversary – Shafran has made a series of video portraits of the presenters; which are now on display at the National Portrait Gallery.
Filmed in and around the Today studio over three days in July 2017, John Humphrys, Sarah Montague, Mishal Husain, Nick Robinson and Justin Webb were questioned by Shafran about their daily lives.
Speaking about Today Everyday Shafran says “my thoughts were concerned with how the Today presenters bring world events into our homes, but what is of interest to me are the details of people’s lives, the day – to – day domestic, the personal, non-events often overlooked, which include details such as eating habits, shopping lists, relatives talked to, memories.”
