Mayor of London Boris Johnson takes a break from running the Capital to talk to Clive about 'The Spirit of London'. First published as 'Johnson's Life of London', it's released with new material following 2012's Jubilee and Olympics and is told through a relay-race of great Londoners illustrating that the ingenuity, diversity and enterprise of the city are second to none.

Clive solves a mystery with actor David Suchet, who's played the lead role in 'Agatha Christie's Poirot' since the detective series launched. David's about to investigate the life of St Paul, exploring the latest archaeological and historical research associated with the story of this charismatic man and his mission. 'David Suchet: In The Footsteps Of St Paul' is on BBC One on Sunday 23rd and Monday 24th December at 09.00.

Clive's aboard the Big Train with actress Rebecca Front, who plays hapless MP Nicola Murray and is frequently 'Tuckered' by co-star Peter Capaldi in 'The Thick of It'. Rebecca's now co-writing and starring in one of Sky 1's 'Little Crackers;' a series of shorts which recreates Christmas stories from childhood. 'Little Crackers' is on Tuesday 11th December at 21.00.

Comedian Harry Hill rides in on his tiny horse to talk to Clive about belching his way through 'TV Burp' for the last eleven years. His DVD 'Harry Hill's Cream of TV Burp' features classic clips, skits, an alcoholic dog and an aggressive tortoise! And if you want to know about Harry's book 'A Complete History of Tim (the Tiny Horse)' - there's only one way to find out..

With music from blue-eyed soul singer Alice Russell, who performs 'Heartbreaker' from her album 'To Dust'.

And classy Americana from Canadian chanteuse Kathleen Edwards, who performs 'Football In The Grass.'

Producer: Cathie Mahoney.
