1 hour, 57 minutes
First broadcast:
Sunday 18 November 2012

Sir Terry Wogan eases you into Sunday morning with music and musings.

This week he's joined by the comedian, actor and broadcaster Michael Palin. Best known as a member of Monty Python comedy group, he is also a noted travel writer and documentarian. His latest series Brazil was recently broadcast on BBC One.

Terry will also catch up with the presenter, actress and half of Mel and Sue, Mel Giedroyc. Recently on our screens presenting The Great British Bake Off, she takes a look at the cultural events that have caught her eye lately.

And live music is provided courtesy of a stripped-back session from the R&B group Stooshe. They reached No. 3 on the UK Singles Chart with Black Heart earlier this year, and their self-titled debut album is due to be released this month.
