Clive's having a knees-up down the boozer with the Pub Landlord Al Murray, whose new comedy tour sees the Guv tackling such subjects as the Euro and Scots Independence. Al opens his doors to the beautiful British public, serving up his premier brew of ale-inspired acumen and bar-room buffoonery. 'The Only Way Is Epic' UK tour runs until Thursday 29th November. Cheers!

Clive reaches dizzy heights with broadcaster Dallas Campbell whose new BBC One series sees him travel the globe, visiting the world's largest and most ambitious engineering projects. He undertakes some extraordinary feats - from cleaning the windows of the world's tallest building to scuba diving in raw sewage! 'Supersized Earth' is on Wednesday 21st November at 20.00.

Emma Freud gets garrulous with 'The Inky Fool', journalist, blogger and man of many words Mark Forsyth, who's reinvented the reference book, offering a cornucopia of hidden words waiting to be unleashed. Ever thought 'What's that word I'm looking for?' Well, 'The Horologicon' offers spectacularly weird words for familiar situations, such as gongoozler and bingo-mort!

Clive's Living a Dream with Premiere Welsh mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins, whose glittering career has seen her perform in honour of Pope John Paul II's Silver Jubilee, the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and in the US on 'Dancing With The Stars'. Katherine's now Away In A Manger with her new album 'This Is Christmas'; a mixture of classic carols and festive favourites.

With music from sibling trio The Staves who perform 'Tongue Behind My Teeth' from their debut album 'Dead & Born & Grown'.

And from another Welsh songstress, Cerys Matthews, who performs the Woody Guthrie song 'Who's Gonna Shoe Your Pretty Little Feet'.

Producer: Cathie Mahoney.
