November is the month of memories, and in an opening section we pay tribute to the dead of all wars, with six songs from various viewpoints of war through history.
Later in the show our folk historian, Babba, lights the fuse on the story of Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot – an infamous event remembered annually with fireworks and bonfires. And there's a specially-written song to commemmorate "the last man to enter Parliament with honest intentions".
We also remind you that the end of November is time for the Great British Folk Festival, so we preview the event with music from some of the artists appearing this year.
