  • The World at One, or WATO ("what-oh") for short, is BBC Radio 4's long-running lunchtime news and current affairs programme, which is currently broadcast from 1.00 pm to 1.45 pm from Monday to Friday. The programme describes itself as "Britain's leading political programme. With a reputation for rigorous and original investigation, it is required listening in Westminster". Because of the programme's nature it is often agenda setting, with interviews leading the headlines from lunchtime through to early evening. From 7 November 2011, the programme was extended in length to 45 minutes (from 30 minutes). This has meant the thirty-minute programmes at one time broadcast immediately after The World at One (such as Brain of Britain) have now found a new time slot on the Radio 4 schedule. A fifteen-minute programme now fills the gap till 2 pm. (en)
