BBC Radio 4's Analysis was first broadcast in 1970 and represented a striking departure from the tendency to combine news and comment in radio current affairs. It was created by a small network of broadcasters who believed that current affairs was distinct from radio journalism. The publication of the controversial document Broadcasting in the Seventies in 1969 and the outcry that followed it gave this group the opportunity to produce an elite form of radio.
