In this hour of music television, you can sit down, get up, dance or drift off to this wide selection of soul and R&B music on BBC Four.

Singer and songwriter Corinne Bailey Rae and DJ Trevor Nelson are here to guide us through their favourite tracks from different times in their lives. From childhood favourites like the Jackson 5 and Gladys Knight to the inspired and inventive hits of Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Prince and Mary J Blige.

We learn a history of the genre as well as the reasons why Corinne and Trevor are moved (sometimes literally) by their chosen tracks; it is a playlist to satisfy and soul searcher.

Soul & Beyond – Friday at 10pm on BBC Four
