Clive's Trainspotting with novelist Irvine Welsh, whose new book 'Skagboys' is the prequel to the 20th century cult classic charting the lives of Renton, Sick Boy, Spud and Tommy, addicted to the heroin flooding their disintegrating community. Clive talks about his journey from Leith to Hollywood and why he's gone back to the novel.

There's Much Ado About Nothing with Laurence Olivier's son, Richard Olivier. Clive asks Richard what it was like growing up with an iconic actor as a father and talks to him about new book 'Inspirational Leadership', which looks to the leadership lessons found in Shakespeare's plays, not least Henry V.

Jo Bunting's fine dining with food writer, cook and critic Simon Hopkinson, who reveals the sumptuous secrets that go into making the world's most delicious restaurant dishes and shows how it's possible to achieve those professional results at home. 'Simon Hopkinson Cooks' is on Monday June 3rd at 21.00 on More4.

Clive's back in the courtroom with actor Clarke Peters. Well known for his role as Detective Lester Freaman in The Wire, Clarke's now starring in 'Race,' a play set in a hotel room with a man accused of rape. 'Race' is at Hampstead Theatre, London until Saturday 29th June.

With music from Wailin' Jenny, Ruth Moody, who performs 'Trouble and Woe' from her album 'These Wilder Things'.
