Clive Anderson and guests with an eclectic mix of conversation, music and comedy.

Clive is joined by the Hollywood star Dougray Scott, whose work has taken in homegrown films like Richard Jobson's New Town Killers and movies starring opposite Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible 2. He's a frequent face on television - from Desperate Housewives, Jekyll and Hyde and Day of the Triffids. His latest role is in the four part ITV drama series Father and Son, a family drama set in Manchester's criminal underworld.

Best selling author and presenter Danny Wallace has carved a niche in following simple ideas to an extreme, with a string of successful books and subsequent television and film adaptations. They follow his adventures of creating new countries, starting a friendly cult, or just saying yes. His latest offering is a sort of diary or collection of anecdotes in which he has done or said the wrong thing creating, as the book is entitled 'Awkward Situations for Men.'

Lesley Sharpe talks about playing an X Factor obsessive in a new Nick Grosso play at London's Royal Court, Ingredient X.

Allegra McEvedy tickles the funny bone of doctor, comedian and presenter of Radio 4's The Music Group, Dr Phil Hammond.

And there's a comedy repeat prescription as Rosie Wilby talks about the Science of Sex.

Plus there's music from the critically acclaimed The Magic Numbers and British home grown hip hop artist and rapper Ty.

Producer: Cathie Mahoney.
