Radio 4 is really good for in depth analysis of news, political, economic, geographical stuff etc actually. It also has some really good comedy programmes, like 'Just a Minute' The Now Show', or 'I'm Sorry I haven't a Clue'.
However, it also has some ridiculously boring radio plays, and documentaries on random dull things, like knitting needles or 18th century light opera. It's something you can dip into where there's something itneresting, but to leave it on all day would probably drive you to sleep.
