Chris Evans Breakfast Show

6.30-9.30am BBC RADIO 2

On BBC Children In Need appeal day at 7am, Chris Evans launches the BBC Radio 2 Music Marathon. During the 12-hour long music-fest, listeners can pledge money to have a chance to hear their favourite song played by their favourite Radio 2 DJ.

Throughout the day, Ken Bruce, Jeremy Vine and Richard Allinson (standing in for Steve Wright) continue the Music Marathon, with Simon Mayo taking the last leg and handing over the fundraising baton to Sir Terry Wogan at BBC Television Centre at 7pm.

BBC Children In Need's mission is to make a positive change to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. Last year, Radio 2 listeners helped raise an incredible £1.8m and this money will support organisations working with children who have mental, physical or sensory disabilities; behavioural or psychological disorders; are living in poverty or situations of deprivation; or suffering through distress, abuse or neglect.

10.00pm-12.00midnight BBC RADIO 2

Tonight's show features an interview with Ruth Mackenzie, director of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad, a series of events that will showcase UK art and culture in the year London hosts the Olympic Games. Claudia Winkleman talks to her about why she thinks we need a Cultural Olympiad.

Claudia also speaks to Australian comedian, musician and composer Tim Minchin. Tim has written the music and lyrics to Matilda: A Musical, the Royal Shakespeare Company's forthcoming production of Roald Dahl's magical story about a little girl with extraordinary powers; a favourite novel for children across the world since it was first published in 1988.

Lucy Glennon, head of education at the Anne Frank Trust, tells Claudia about the stories and fables which have just been published in the UK under the title Anne Frank's Tales From The Secret Annexe, which Frank is less well-known for.

Jarvis Cocker presents Electronica

Jarvis Cocker presents Electronica, the first concert in a three-part series at London's Queen Elizabeth Hall exploring the evolution of electric instruments and sounds fused into the "real" and the "live". The season kicks off with instrumental music by Goldfrapp's Will Gregory, Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood and others featuring theremins, moogs and ondes martenots – electronic instruments that were once symbols of music catching up with the Machine Age, yet still today appear somehow futuristic.

The concert features the BBC Concert Orchestra with Charles Hazlewood as conductor.

The Impossible Life Of Jacques Cousteau

Friday 19 November

Jacques Cousteau escaped a near-fatal car crash, invented the aqualung and founded modern marine conservation – all in a day's work for a man who believed that "the impossible missions are the only ones which succeed."

Cousteau will always be remembered as the man who brought marine life to cinema and television screens for the first time. Along with the crew of his iconic ship, Calypso, he inspired a generation of children to become scientists and pioneered marine conservation at a time when conservation of the land – let alone the sea – had scarcely been thought of. Yet in later life this iconic figure argued that the human population should be restricted to 100,000 for the sake of the environment, and following his death his family have disagreed about how best to continue his work.

In this, Cousteau's centenary year, naturalist Bridget Nicholls tracks down friends, colleagues and family members to tell the story of this often difficult – occasionally impossible – but always inspiring man and asks whether his legacy, like his ship, can be restored.
