As part of Radio 3 live at Southbank Centre, London, Sara Mohr-Pietsch introduces choral music and stories from the year the network was born, 1946. She also explores the great number of British choral societies formed that year - who, like Radio 3, are marking their 70th birthday in 2016.
Her guests this week are the former Radio 3 and Proms Controller Sir Nicholas Kenyon, and the music historian Dr Kate Guthrie.
This week's amateur choir featured in "Meet My Choir" is the EJMS Adult Chorale from Ealing in London, and Sara's Choral Classic is the extraordinary 1980 work CRY by Giles Swayne.
