And We Are Live...

Have a lie-in with 4 Extra's first live show, hosted by Jake Yapp. Expect guests, sketches, chat, treats and feats of live broadcasting from the archive, plus a big musical finale.

Have a lie-in with Radio 4 Extra's first live show - and find out how the comedian Jake Yapp gets on in the world of live radio.

Jake will attack the established furniture of the media with his take on live news headlines, sports reports and documentaries. Jake will also chat to stalwarts of live broadcasting - newsreaders, sports reporters, DJs, continuity announcers and quiz show hosts.

There will also be live, improvised and topical sketches featuring studio guests Ruth Bratt, Alex Lowe and Cariad Lloyd, music from Harry the Piano - and a show-stopping musical extravaganza.

The show will also feature treats and feats of live broadcasting - both fictional and actual - from the BBC Archive.
