Nature-loving Springwatch and Autumnwatch presenter Kate Humble talks to Richard in the first hour about her new BBC series where she goes in search of the world's most valuable spices. BBC Two's Spice Trail reveals their history, trade, mythology and usage.

Edinburgh Fringe Festival favourite Ed Byrne tells Richard about his new stand up tour.

Mark Kermode gives his take on the Bafta film award winners, and we hear from Xavier Marchand, managing director of Momentum Pictures who produced the night's big winner, The King's Speech.

And is Channel 4's Big Fat Gypsy Weddings a serious documentary or dumbed down entertainment? Former ITV director of programmes Simon Shaps and News of the World TV critic Ian Hyland offer some heated views, as part of Richard's Big Obsession in the final half hour.
