We are the latest thing in experimental online news channels. We are home to a monthly alternative news programme which aims to get behind the headlines and promote a people-first perspective. Critical reports will put the case for a better life for all and expose everything and anything that smacks of inequality and moral hypocrisy. We are not impressed by the mass of non-news, celebrity nonsense, or by the current preoccupations with crime and people’s weird problems. But we are not just shouting at the telly; we are serious about clarifying issues, understanding trends, challenging bad ideas and changing minds.

"In few places does the free exchange of views take place on so wide a range of issues as at the Battle of Ideas. Whatever the headlines of 2011 prove to be, the Battle of Ideas is where they will be most robustly debated."
Andrew Copson, chief executive, British Humanist Association
