Hardeep's Sunday Lunch

Series 1-Episode 3

Series 1-Episode 3

Sat 3 Jun 7:30am - 8am BBC Radio 4 Extra


This is a staggering programme. While Hardeep prepares a chicken bhuna, Will Riley and Peter Woolf give vivid descriptions of how they first met — though Will would baulk at the use of that mild word — in a violent confrontation when Peter broke into Will’s swanky house in north London.

That they became friends after taking part in a restorative justice programme, and despite Peter being a drug-using, alcoholic lifelong criminal while Will was living an affluent middle-class lifestyle, is a credit to them both. In a fine bit of irony they now describe their friendship as like that of cellmates.


Hardeep Singh Kohli cooks lunch for Peter Woolf and Will Riley in London, continuing his journey around the UK to find some heart-warming and interesting stories. The two men he meets come from very different backgrounds and had forged an unlikely friendship after one broke into the other's house.
