Ferguson asks BR if he would like to confirm a date to record the "What's the Idea?" programme, so she can confirm the availability of the interviewers. Ferguson "purposely chose two men who are well to the left, who go quite far with you in their attitude to nuclear disarmament and men who are intelligent enough to do you justice." She contends that two interviewers will give the programme the needed "depth and tension" and that the nature of the programme requires two interviewers; "three has proved to be very muddling and one would make the discussion thin."
