– The BBC is to revive its defunct arts, media and culture magazine, the Listener, on the internet nine years after it closed the title.

It is understood the magazine, which was published for 62 years before disappearing from news-stands, will be launched online later this month. The move is part of the BBC's plans to exploit the demand for online magazines.

A BBC spokesman said: "We expect magazine type publications on the internet to be a big thing in the UK in the next 12 months. The BBC had a wonderful brand in the Listener."

At its height in 1948 the Listener achieved a circulation of 153,000, which had dwindled to 17,000 by the time the corporation closed the magazine.
