Julian Clary, Krister Henriksson, David Quantick, Sophie Kinsella, Night Beds, Treetop Flyers
There's Scandimania in the studio this week as Clive's joined by Wallander himself, Swedish actor Krister Henriksson. Krister's currently making his West end debut in 'Doktor Glas'. Performed in Swedish with English subtitles and is at Wyndham's Theatre, London until Saturday 11th May.
Clive's got a ticket to ride with journalist and writer David Quantick, who's written comedy drama 'Playhouse Presents: Snodgrass' for Sky Arts 1. Based on the novella by Ian R MacLeod, a 50 year old John Lennon sits in a dingy kitchen, smoking a roll up, unemployed and on his uppers. This is the John Lennon who walked out on the Beatles in 1962, before the hits and before they changed music for ever. It's on Thursday 25th April at 21.00 on Sky Arts 1.
Nikki Bedi's having a sleepover with chicklit author Sophie Kinsella. Having penned the 'Confessions Of A Shopaholic' series of novels, Sophie's also written 'Sleeping Arrangements' under her real name, Madeleine Wickham. It's been adapted for the stage as a musical and is the story of two families, one holiday villa - but who's sleeping with whom? It's at London's Landor Theatre until Sunday 12th May.
Clive has a Sticky Moment with self-proclaimed 'Lord of Mince' and national treasure Julian Clary. Wedding bells are ringing for Julian, whose show flirts in the face of conformity and sees him welcome a selection of eligible bachelors to the stage to win his hand in marriage. 'Position Vacant: Apply Within' is touring until Sunday 2nd June.
Music is from London based Treetop Flyers, who perform 'Things Will Change' from their album 'The Mountain Moves'.
And from Nashville-based singer-songwriter Winston Yellen, the brainchild of Night Beds, who performs '22' from his album 'Country Sleep'.
Producer: Sukey Firth.
‘The Mountain Moves’ is available on Monday 29th April on Loose Music.
The band are performing at Dingwalls, London on 30th April, Louisiana, Bristol on 1st and Phoenix, Exeter on 2nd May. Check their website for further tour dates.
