BBC Radio Manchester is celebrating Comic Relief this Friday by travelling back in time to 1973. The event has been inspired by the Manchester-based BBC One drama Life on Mars, which will see the station reflect the culture of the early 70's playing hits such as Slade's Cum On Feel The Noize.

Studio scenes will also be broadcast live on the BBC Big Screen in the city centre, so people can see the station staff wearing fancy dress from the era. On the breakfast show, Terry Christian is joined by the face of the aftershave adverts Henry Cooper who shares his memories of the era.

At 9am, Slade frontman Noddy Holder joins Eamonn O'Neal to talk about his memories of 1973. From 2pm, Richard Fair visits Concorde at Manchester Airport and is joined by Wish You Were Here presenter Judith Chalmers to reflect on how travel has changed in the past few decades.

With hits from the Seventies played throughout the day, news and sport bulletins will also recapture the flavour of the era.
