We're live from the YMCA Theatre in Scarborough with Sir Michael Parkinson, folk legend Martin Carthy, surfer Tori Gower and Jennifer Dunne on the exhibition the Ancient Seas of the Yorkshire Coast. With Inheritance Tracks from Kiki Dee.

Sir Michael Parkinson talks about his early life in Yorkshire, happy memories of holidays in Scarborough, his passion for cricket and forthcoming tour - An Evening With Sir Michael Parkinson.

Jennifer Dunne is Collections Manager, Scarborough Museums Trust. She describes the Rotunda Museum's new exhibition for the Scarborough's Dinosaur coast, which includes a recently discovered fossilized Walrus skull.

Tori Gower discovered surfing while on a visit to Scarborough and stayed. She's now a qualified surf instructor and RNLI beach lifeguard in Scarborough. When she's not in the water, she's usually painting - she's created seascapes as well as surfboard art.

Ben Davis is running some 470 miles around Yorkshire. He set off on Yorkshire Day 1 August and he finishes in Scarborough today. He describes the journey and benefits of running for his mental health - and his weight.

Folk legend Martin Carthy performs live, including a new arrangement of Scarborough Fair. He recalls his family's musical roots, his acting ambitions and what brought him to the area.

Kiki Dee shares her Inheritance Tracks - Some of Your Lovin by Dusty Springfield and Calling All Angels, Jane Siberry.
