Talkback programmes seem to be British radio programs. Do listeners also attend the talk?
I listen to the radio a lot. Interviews on radio, talkback programmes, that sort of thing.
Talk Back is BBC Radio Ulster's award winning daily political and current-affairs phone-in programme, currently presented by William Crawley. It was launched on 8 September 1986 and runs from Monday to Friday, from just after the midday news to 1:30pm (1pm on the Radio Foylesimulcast).
The programme's first presenter was Barry Cowan, who died in 2004, aged 56. Talk Back took the Silver Award in the 2006 Sony Radio Academy Awards for the News and Current Affairs programme of the year, and the programme marked its 20th anniversary on Friday 7 September 2006.
Talk back radio is a radio program with a host who takes on-air phone calls from listeners, to get their opinions, usually after having introduced some controversial topic. The listeners don't physically attend the studio. I'd say they have them in most countries.
Talk Back, the BBC program, was no doubt named after talk back radio.
