Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,
We watched the end of year compilation and were dismayed by the lack of female guests. Could you please respond to the following three questions applying to the year 2017.
1) The numbers of male and female Chairs for this show over the year (please give both figures).
2) The numbers of male and female guests for this show over the year (excluding Merton and Hislop). Repeat appearances counting as two or more accordingly. (Please give figures for both male and female).
3) The numbers of male and female guests invited who declined to be on the show (please give both figures).

Yours faithfully,

Dr Andy Stillman
