More or Less

A brand new series of More or Less starts today – in fact, in less than an hour. We’re now on the air (Radio 4) at Fridays at 1.30pm GMT and Sundays at 8pm GMT. You can also listen online, subscribe to a podcast, and read more at the More or Less website here.

This episode: how statistics on child abuse have been mis-reported; is fishing really more dangerous than boxing?; the simple mathematics of the credit crunch; and the psychological error that may be undermining one of the UK’s most prestigious business awards.
