Miranda Hart joins Richard

Miranda Hart on her Christmas special; Claire Foy and Anne Reid discuss the new Upstairs Downstairs and your Christmas food, present-wrapping and racist grandparent problems solved.

Comic actress Miranda Hart talks about her rise to fame and the Christmas special of her sitcom Miranda, on BBC Two tonight. She explains how the character of her dad makes a first appearance, played by Tom Conti, and how she remembers Clare Balding as her school headgirl.

A revival of 1970s drama Upstairs Downstairs begins on Boxing Day. Claire Foy who plays the ravishing Lady Persephone Towyn, and Anne Reid who plays the snobbish Clarice Thackeray join Richard to discuss life at 165 Eaton Place.

And with only five days till Christmas, an extra edition of Help!, to assist with your snow-related travel problems and Christmas crises. All Christmas dilemmas accounted for, Phil Vickery answers all food help questions, Jane Means is a present-wrapping and buying expert, and Kathryn Flett tells Richard and the audience how to survive a family Christmas and how to deal with racist grandparents.
