A recent example was a show about skin conditions where a professor of dermatologywas on hand to answer callers queries. Another show was about internet safetyand an expert and author of an internet safety book was invited to speak. Different guests appear all the time and can add a real insight to theissue talked about.

The Anna Raeburn Show provides a real and tangible service toboth callers and listenersthrough LBC radio. Rarely can such valuable advice be obtained so quickly and easily from professional people. Anna will also share her wisdom without the listener actuallytalking to her by responding to texts and emails (when there is enough information to provide an answer). This means the person with the problem can remain completely anonymous and doesn't have to talk about a personalissue live on air.

When listening to the Anna Raeburn show you can't help butfeel inspired by Anna's philosophy and call to action to encourage yourself to deal with any issues you may have and better yourself. In conclusionwhile only being two hours in length the show packs in alot of informationand proves essential listening for anyone keen onhearing and solving sometimes very personal problems.
