Radio Times gets a makeover

BBC Magazines has revamped its weekly television and radio programme listings title.

The television guide now sports a new cover design and a weekly list of the best shows on television, radio and other video-on-demand services.

The magazine has introduced an extra page for radio coverage and a column by Scottish journalist and radio presenter, Eddie Mair. It also features sections such as sports and children.

After editor Ben Preston took over as editor in September last year, Radio Times has crossed the one million circulation mark, according to ABC figures for July to December 2009. Though the circulation remained down 2.2 per cent year-on-year, it rose 3.6 per cent in the last six months of 2009.
