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

Clive is joined by comedian, actor and former presenter of Have I Got News for You - Angus Deayton. Angus brings his hosting skills to a new panel game for Radio 4 'It's Your Round'. The show has a simple format - there isn't one. Each comedy panellist has to invent their own round for the others to play. Miles Jupp asks his adversaries What Does My Dad Know?

James Fleet is well known for appearing in many a Richard Curtis project - Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill and for being the nice but dim Hugo in The Vicar of Dibley. Now he plays a much sterner part in Richard Bean's play The Heretic at the Royal Court Theatre, a black comedy exploring the divisive issues around climate change and orthodox science.

From one former barrister to another, Clive talks to the BAFTA award winning writer Peter Moffat. His latest primetime BBC One drama 'Silk' staring Maxine Peake and Rupert Penry-Jones explores the lives, loves and hard cases of barristers in the front line of criminal law.

Comedy writer and performer Andrew McGibbon talks to Emma Freud about his new book 'I Was Douglas Adams's Flatmate'. A collection of interviews with friends or collaborators of some the the 20th century's most elusive and notorious figures - Jon Canter's time with the Hitchhikers Guide Creator, the tailor who created the 'Man in Black' image for Johnny Cash and even Andrew's own spell as the drummer for Morrissey.

On Valentine's Weekend, one of Stateside's finest country-soul-rock bands Drive-By Truckers play a special acoustic performance of Everybody Needs Love from their eleventh album, Go-Go Boots.

And the 21 year old described by The Guardian as 'Major Star Alert' Caitlin Rose performs Own Side Now from her critically acclaimed album of the same name.

Producer: Cathie Mahoney.
