The presenters throughout the day for this TV and stereo sound experience are Andy Batten-Foster, Steve Blacknell, Mark Ellen, Paul Gambaccini, David Hepworth,

Andy Kershaw, Janice Long, Richard Skinner, Mike Smith. As Bob Geldof has said, 'We've kept millions alive; now we must give them a life.'
