Sir Cliff Richard, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Richard E Grant, Tamara Rojo, Flavia Coelho, Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Clive's Wired For Sound with the UK's all-time greatest hit-maker Sir Cliff Richard, who unbelievably is about to release his 100th album. 'The Fabulous Rock 'n' Roll Songbook' is Cliff's tribute to the rock 'n' roll greats who inspired him, such as Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly. He treats us to his debut 1958 hit 'Move It'.
Clive revisits Uncle Monty's country cottage with actor and director Richard E Grant. Withnail and Clive learn How To Get Ahead in Advertising and discuss Richard's new film 'Dom Hemingway', playing safecracker Dom's sidekick Dickie. Dom (Jude Law) is back after twelve years in prison, and it's time to collect what he's owed. 'Dom Hemingway' is in cinemas on Friday 15th November.
Nikki Bedi brings intrepid explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes in from the cold to talk about his life, dedicated to researching and exploring some of the most brutally freezing and hostile places on earth. His new book 'Cold' documents his many adventures, exposed to perilous temperatures, leading to frostbite and loss of fingers. Sir Ranulph deservedly holds the title of 'the world's greatest adventurer'.
Clive's final nutcracker of a guest is English National Ballet's Artistic Director Tamara Rojo, who's been repeatedly recognised for her artistic excellence. Tamara is currently leading a production of 'Le Corsaire'; a swashbuckling drama of captive maidens, rich sultans, kidnap and rescue, culminating in a breath-taking shipwreck. 'Le Corsaire' at Bristol's Hippodrome from 26th November to 30th November.
With music from Rio-born, Paris-based Flavia Coelho, who performs 'Sunshine' from her album 'Bossa Muffin'. And from Unknown Mortal Orchestra perform 'Swim & Sleep Like A Shark' from their 'Blue Record EP'.
Producer: Sukey Firth.
