Live at the BBC is a compilation album of live tracks recorded for the BBC between 1985 and 1987 by The Housemartins. While most of the tracks included are session versions recorded for various BBC radio shows, the disc also features a number of cuts from the band's performances in Nottingham and at the 1986 Glastonbury Festival, as broadcast on the BBC.

The album features sleevenotes written by the band's former press officer and compere, Phill Jupitus, and serves as a companion to the previously released BBC session tracks included on the 1988 compilation album "Now That's What I Call Quite Good". With the exception of track 1, "Drop Down Dead", all of the recordings included on the disc are exclusive to this album.
