GERI HALLIWELL (right), Spice Girl-turned-UN ambassador, drops into Woman's Hour (10am R4) to talk about her Comic Relief mission to Uganda where, aptly, she almost sank without a trace in Victoria Nile rapids.

The Friday Play: Cribb and the Black (9pm R4) by Steve Walker, relates with gently ribbing humour, a shameful episode: the bare-knuckle showdown in 1810 between Tom Molineaux, an ex-slave and boxing's then reigning world champion, and Tom Cribb, upon whom England's "pride" rested.

Not the Short One at the Back with the Glasses (11.30pm R4FM) ponders the net result of not being picked for games. A tendency to listen to radio on Friday nights, perhaps.
