Angelina joins BBC Radio for Christmas

Angelina will be a guest at the British Radio 4’s “Today” programme which is recorded today, we think. The programme will air December 28 and we will try and find the audio clip for you, hopefully it will be easy to find! She was on this Radio show back in 2016 as well and we will do our best and try to locate that clip as well.

Angelina Jolie will guest edit Radio 4’s Today programme while Take That will take over Radio 2 as part of BBC Radio’s festive schedules.

Jolie, who is a special envoy to the UN Refugee Agency, will take over editor duties on Today on 28 December.

She is one of a number of guest editors between 22 December to 1 January, with David Dimbleby first to take charge.

On Christmas Day, meanwhile, Take That will celebrate their 30th anniversary with a two-hour show. The schedule also features such stalwarts as Nine Lessons and Carols from King’s College on Christmas Eve. Bob Shennan, the BBC’s director of radio and music, said the schedule was “an unrivalled collection of programmes”.

Jolie is expected to invite a series of guests – including refugees and survivors of conflict – to discuss the global refugee crisis and solutions to violence against women in war zones.

A spokesperson for the actress said she has already begun working with the Today programme team, saying the actress was “grateful for this opportunity to draw on the BBC’s global expertise and network to explore practical solutions to a number of pressing issues of our time.”
