Joan Collins; Stars of Downton Abbey

Joan Collins tells Richard about her new memoir, packed with observations on marriage, manners and men: The World According to Joan.

With the second series of ITV's Downton Abbey about to start, Richard's joined by Dan Stevens (who plays Matthew Crawley), Laura Carmichael (who plays Lady Edith) and Jessica Brown-Findlay (Lady Sybil). There's also the regular review of the last week on TV, and a look ahead to other programmes coming up.

And indie-pop band The Kooks drop in to play a sample of their latest album, Junk of the Heart.
