About Peter

Peter Day started broadcasting about business for BBC News in 1975, and has been doing it ever since. In 1987 he took over as presenter of In Business, running for half the year on BBC Radio 4, and in 2000 he added the weekly BBC World Service programme Global Business.

Both programmes are pitched at listeners who did not realise they were interested in business... until they listened in. Both have a relentless common theme: change.

Peter grew up in rural Lincolnshire, went to Lincoln School, and then read English at St Edmund Hall, Oxford. He never expected to have anything whatsoever to do with finance, economics or business life. He still tries to stand at a slight tangent to the world of commerce.
