Super Gran
Having scaled the fourth plinth at Trafalgar Square last year, 85-year-old Gwyneth Peddler decided to celebrate her latest birthday by again hitting new heights - this time climbing the rigging of a tall ship.
She told listeners all about her latest endeavours and about planning something out of reach for her next birthday.
