'In Our Time' is a discussion programme on the "history of ideas"; it has been hosted since 1998 by Melvyn Bragg on BBC Radio 4 in the United Kingdom. The series covers many different subjects from history, religion, philosophy, the arts or science, one of which is explored in each programme with the help of three experts on the subject. Melvyn Bragg starts each episode with a short summary of the week's topic. He then introduces the three academics on that particular topic. One of the specialists is invited to begin the proceedings, and then Bragg advances the discussion by inviting another of the guests to answer a question. This continues along a preplanned route until the end of the programme is in sight. Bragg then either winds the programme up himself or allows a remark from one of the specialists to be the concluding statement.
