Easter treats on BBC Radio 5 Live

BBC Radio 5 Live has two one-off specials for Easter Sunday – Stuart Hall's Archive Box will celebrate some of the best football interviews from the BBC vaults, while Tim Samuels will hear from some of the MPs who have chosen to step down at the General Election, in P45 Politicians.

Broadcasting legend and 5 Live football reporter Stuart Hall delves in to the BBC Sport Archives to choose some of his favourite football interviews from over the years on Radio 5 Live on Easter Sunday, 4 April, from 7-8pm.

Stuart, who has been reporting for the BBC for over 50 years, will pick two of his own classic interviews, as well as other memorable football interviews from BBC sports programmes from down the years – including some from the world's longest-running radio sports show, Sports Report.

Also on Easter Sunday, award-winning documentary maker Tim Samuels will be talking to politicians who have decided to step down at the General Election, in P45 Politicians (8-9pm).

Tim will speak to MPs from across the political spectrum about their time in Parliament – including their views on the expenses scandal, making the headlines, parliamentary egos, party hierarchy and dealing with their constituents.

The departing politicians talking candidly to Tim include former Conservative frontbencher Ann Widdecombe, who is stepping down after 23 years in parliament; Labour's former Minister of Sport, Richard Caborn, who has served 27 years as an MP; and high profile former Liberal frontbencher Mark Oaten, who was first elected to the House in 1997.

P45 Politicians will lift the lid on what these departing politicians really think about one of the most turbulent periods of Parliament in modern times.
