Radio 4 format which delivers a frank and funny conversation about what it is like to be a father in modern Britain.

Presented by Tim Vincent, with regular guests Russell Kane and Mick Ferry, subjects include dealing with children in restaurants, being the only dad at playgroup and whether there's anything that dads do better than mums.

The panel talk about everything from sleep, pregnancy and toilet training, to dealing with children in restaurants, being the only dad at playgroup and whether there's anything that dads do better than mums.

Vincent said: "As a new father for the first time at 47 of twin boys, I am delighted to be hosting a show joined by other dads who have tips, insights and warnings about parenthood. Are dad's disadvantaged, do we really know less than mums and what are the politics of the schoolyard gate? The Likely Dads is a safe haven for men to get things off their chest, a bit like AA but the bottles we discuss contain powdered milk."
