Sorry, this episode is not currently available on BBC iPlayer Radio


Chris Hawkins presents documentaries and live music lovingly hand-picked from the BBC archives. Tonight the headline act is British all-female heavy metal band Girlschool, live at the BBC's Paris Theatre in 1982.

There's also the 5.15 - your chance to choose the first request of the day, the Funky Weather forecast live from a broom cupboard at the BBC weather centre, and another daft game of Play Your Birthday Cards Right.

Plus, The Hawk's new best friend forever, Cold Feet actress Fay Ripley, provides the laughs, and a tasty recipe to satisfy a hungry nation!
