Lucky bidder can win breakfast with John Humphrys in Children in Need Auction

Fans of the Today show on BBC Radio 4 have a chance to join John Humphrys for breakfast and take part in a production meeting as part of Children in Need.

The unique opportunity is being auctioned for the popular charity, with the successful bidder expected to set their alarm clock for the crack of dawn.

Today Editor Jamie Angus said: "This is a prize that involves getting up at 5am to join our team of journalists and presenters as we broadcast the day's news and current affairs to around seven million people, live on BBC Radio 4. You'll also have the pleasure of seeing some of the more disturbing early morning sights in Today's world including John Humphrys' cereal bowl. Despite that, we anticipate a lot of interest and we look forward to welcoming the winner into the team for the day."

For those who can’t stomach such an early start, it is possible to bid for a behind-the-scenes peek at The Archers or join Clare Balding as she goes for a walk with a celebrity before a pub lunch.
Those of a nautical bent can record their own version of the shipping forecast.

The auction will be accessible through the Radio 4 website and is run through eBay until it finishes at 9pm on Sunday November 17.
