Radio 4 at 9 am.

A consistently entertaining, interesting ,enjoyable programme with hosts Richard Coles and Nikki Bedi who draw the best out of their guests.

A particularly good episode this morning.

Actor James Purefoy joins Nikki Bedi and Richard Coles to talk about Fisherman's Friends One and All. From Mark Antony in Rome to The Black Prince in A Knight's Tale, James talks about his long and wide-ranging career.

The Singh Twins are visual artists whose colourful and acclaimed work draws on traditional Indian techniques, Western medieval illuminated manuscripts and contemporary Western culture. They talk about their close bond and identifying as 'twindividuals'.

Adeline Vining found a vintage Dior dress belonging to her grandmother in a suitcase in the attic. When she posted a TikTok of herself wearing the dress, she went viral. Fashion historians got involved, suggesting the dress was made by Christian Dior himself, and estimating its worth at �35,000. The discovery also helped Adeline uncover the story of her grandmother's life.

Lesley Pearse has been a bestselling novelist for many years, and has lived an extraordinary life. After spending time in an orphanage, she found herself working as a bunny girl in Soho in her teens. When she became pregnant she was forced to give her son up for adoption. Years later she has reconnected with her son, and discovered the huge family she never knew she had.

Also we have the Inheritance Tracks of producer and DJ Paul Oakenfold, who chooses Elvis Presley's Rubberneckin' and Marvin Gaye's What's Going On.

Much of my enjoyment of Saturday Live was due to the presence of Richard Coles and now he's gone. ☹️

Yes, another bonkers decision by BBC Radio bosses. Make the presenter quit so they don't have to be fired. It's happening so often it must be policy.

Richard talking on Feedback yesterday about his departure from Saturday Live.

Plans - they are only plans - to come back for a programme with Nikki Bedi?

22 mins into the programme.

Lovely to hear he is 'stepping out' with a new partner after the death of his husband in 2019.
