Scenic will not start after 5 minutes of radio

Hi there

I am having another fabulous problem with my 2004 Scenic. Generally the car starts well with no problems (apart from the occasional stall after two minutes) but if I leave the radio on with the ignition off for more than about three minutes the car won't start - the starter motor tries to crank the engine but it doesn't seem to have enough power and the battery reports that it is flat.

If I leave the engine off without the radio on it always seems to start fine!

I don't really know where to start with this one!

Currently in Rrrrrrob's garage:
2004 Scenic 1.6 16V
