Sunday 28 August
3.00-5.00pm BBC RADIO 2

Johnnie Walker catches up with one of the great rock 'n' roll survivors, Fleetwood Mac singer and songwriter Stevie Nicks.

Stevie talks candidly about her relationship with Lindsay Buckingham, writing iconic hits from Rhiannon to Dreams, and the relationship breakdowns that fuelled Rumours – one of the decade's biggest and most cherished albums.

With an eye on her personal and professional renaissance which included the conquest of drug addiction, Stevie looks back to a time that saw her hailed as the "Reigning Queen of rock 'n' roll" by Rolling Stone magazine.

The Reunion Ep 4/6

Sunday 28 August
11.15am-12.00noon BBC RADIO 4

Sue MacGregor reunites those involved in the making of the Eighties television drama series, Boys From The Blackstuff.

This edition of The Reunion brings together Julie Walters, Alan Bleasdale, Tom Georgeson, Michael Angelis and producer Michael Wearing to talk about their roles in the landmark series.

Writer Alan Bleasdale's hard-hitting drama series was set against the harsh backdrop of struggle and bleak unemployment in the Liverpool of Thatcher's Britain. It chronicled the lives of a group of men as they sought to find work while suffering the despair and indignity of life on the scrapheap.

First transmitted in October 1982, it received widespread critical acclaim and became a "television event".

It painted an uncomfortable but warranted portrait of a city and a country teetering precariously on the brink of social and economic disaster.

The original team join Sue MacGregor to talk about their experiences of the making of the series.

British Caste Conundrum

Sunday 28 August
1.30-2.00pm BBC RADIO 4

Paul Sinha discovers that some British Asians believe caste discrimination is alive and well in the UK and explores why the Government hasn't made it an offence in the Equality Act.

Comedian Paul Sinha found out he was from the Brahmin caste only when he asked his parents when he was 12, after a history lesson at school. It hadn't figured in his life at all to that point.

In this programme, Paul meets British "Untouchables", so lowly that they are not officially a caste, who claim they are being discriminated against in their daily lives.

He also interviews Hilary Metcalfe, whose report into the caste system in the UK for the National Institute of Economic and Social Research found anecdotal evidence of discrimination based on caste.

He also meets Hindu and Sikh leaders who feel that caste discrimination can be dealt with within their communities without legislation.

6 Mix

Sunday 28 August
8.00-10.00pm BBC RADIO 6 MUSIC

Dave Pearce goes back to his soul-boy roots as he celebrates 40 years of Philadelphia International Records. Founded by writing and production duo Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff in 1971, the label became known for its trademark soulful disco sound, producing hits for The Three Degrees, McFadden & Whitehead and Teddy Pendergrass.

Its catalogue became a staple of the British rare groove scene during the early Eighties and it also played an important role in the creation of house music, with DJs like Larry Levan and Frankie Knuckles spinning their tunes in the legendary Paradise Garage.

As the label enters its forth decade, Dave is joined by journalist Ralph Tee – author of Who's Who In Soul Music – to dig through some of its finest moments and forgotten gems, from The O'Jays to MFSB, via Lou Rawls, Dexter Wansel and Archie Bell & The Dells.
