Children talking, gossiping, commenting, criticising - and delighting us all by opening up in that sparkling way that children have, to Harold Williamson.

Williamson is a reporter. He covers industry, politics, social issues, and foreign affairs, and on Saturday nights on Braden's Week it's Harold and the children. He believes he's not so much the man who talks to children as the man who's learned how to listen. In the second of two programmes we meet again some of the children who talk to him and hear from the man himself why it is he thinks they do
