In the 1970s and 80s The Old Grey Whistle Test was one of the most influential music programmes on British TV. Now it’s back for a special episode.

For a special three-hour long live programme Whispering Bob Harris returns to look back at some of the show’s greatest moments, 30 years after it last aired. There are performances from musicians who starred in the original show such as Peter Frampton, interviews with guests like Danny Baker and the show’s original producer Mike Appleton, and contributions from other guests such as Annie Nightingale and Andy Kershaw.

The Old Grey Whistle Test is on BBC Four at 21.00.
