Breaking Bath with Petra Jones

Sunday: 8am - 10am

Bringing you the best of Bath.

There is so much to celebrate about Bath. It overflows with history, opportunity and life. Breaking Bath brings to light the everyday miracles, and the miracle-makers behind them, that make our little corner of the world such a fantastic place to live.

The hours of 8am - 10am every Sunday are dedicated to the hardworking people of Bath; the volunteers, the business owners, the charities and you: the Bathonian that makes the big difference.

Between snippets of the weeks' news, Breaking Bath also features some of the smoothest Sunday morning music around.

So, make yourself a cup of tea, tune in, and hear the city you live in come to life.
