When It Hits the Fan

10:00 AM GMT+1 on October 22, 2023

    When It Hits the Fan - Crisis? What crisis? This relatively new BBC Radio 4 series throws you into the world of crisis management, picking apart major PR disasters and working out how they have managed, or could, put it back together again. It is presented by two seasoned experts of this sort of world, public relations expert and former Sun editor David Yelland and former communications secretary for The Queen, Simon Lewis.

    Whilst the temptation with this series might be to look back at some of the biggest scandals of all time, Yelland and Lewis look at more recent ones, which in turn makes each episode feel like required listening. Recent episode explores the furore aimed at GB News and that car crash interview with the family of Captain Tom.
