BBC Launches Series for Men

July 19th, 2010 by Pelle Billing

Read about it here and here.

Men’s Hour, as the new series is called, is put on the air 64 years after the launch of Women’s Hour. I’d say that is a good measure of the lead that feminism has over men’s issues.

Overall though, great news for men in the UK.

    I ended up getting occupied and was unable to listen to it last night when it aired. Thing is though unless I’m mistaken it is only planned to be a limited series. Like 6-7 1 hour discussions are enough to get the ball rolling on men. But I supposed its a start.

    I had a listen to some of the first show, thought it the aural equivalent of ‘men’s studies’ – talk of drugs to make men monogamous, a ‘thoughts for the gay’ section, sickeningly apologetic polite fluffy-jumpered touchy-feely nonsense all framed within a belittling & emasculating feminist-friendly format. Nothing of any worth was, or could be, said. Horrible.

    They do have a phone-in, though, which could be used to shake things up a little if anyone felt interested enough to give it their time.

    Thanks for letting us know about the show, L.Byron.

    What a shame that they chose the “men’s studies” version of talking about men, but I can’t say that I’m surprised.

    Yeah, I have to say I wasn’t very impressed. I will, however, be listening to it again to see what happens next week and, yes, might well phone in at some point.

    Does anyone by chance know if there is an archive where these are being held?
