Duration: 3 hours, 30 minutes

Jonathan Edwards introduces live coverage of the British Athletics Grand Prix from Birmingham - arguably the best annual indoor meeting in the world. The star attraction at the National Indoor Arena is Great Britain's double Olympic champion Mo Farah, who is running in the 3,000m - and it is likely to be his only indoor race of 2013. The 29-year-old set a British and European record when he finished second in the event last year, and views the race as perfect preparation for this summer's World Championships in Moscow.

The Grand Prix is real star-studded event, which is set to include appearances from Olympic champions such as women's 100m queen Shelly Ann Fraser Pryce, 110m hurdle champion Aries Merritt and high jump gold medallist Ivan Ukhov. As well as Mo, the home crowd will be able to cheer on fellow British athletes including high jumper Robbie Grabarz, who won bronze at the London Games and emerging stars such as pole-vaulter Holly Bleasdale, 400 metre hurdler Perri Shakes-Drayton and 800m runner Andrew Osagie.

Lead commentary by Steve Cram, with Colin Jackson, Denise Lewis and Paula Radcliffe providing expert analysis.
