Morning Live returns to our screens on the 24th October ready to celebrate 100 years of the BBC. As well as delving into the archive, we’ll be showing what the BBC offers us all today with our team of experts. From health to money, pets to gardening, we’ll have something for everyone, just like the BBC!
Saturday Kitchen Live will broadcast a special episode on 29th October to honour the BBC’s centenary year, celebrating the Corporation’s achievements in food broadcasting.
Since the first TV chef, Marcel Boulestin, appeared on our screens in 1937, the BBC has created an abundance of iconic culinary stars, from Marguerite Patten to Ken Hom, Delia Smith to Madhur Jaffrey – enlightening, entertaining and educating the public to the widest range of global cuisines.
This special episode will feature guests and chefs who have shaped food television over the years with a collage of vintage archive from some of the greats.
In a special show to celebrate the BBC’s 100th birthday, two teams of famous faces go head to head at an antiques fair in Newark. On the red team are broadcasting legends Tony Blackburn and Gyles Brandreth.
Their opposition in blue are presenter and writer Josie d’Arby and broadcaster and drummer extraordinaire Owain Wyn Evans. Natasha Raskin sharp presents today’s celebrity showdown, and experts Thomas Forrester and Chuko Ojiri will be on hand to help the Reds and the Blues choose three items to take to auction.
Which top TV team will bring home the victory? Natasha also dips into the BBC archive as she takes a journey through 100 years of memorable moments, starting from its radio launch way back in 1922.
