Boy George, Count Arthur Strong, Jimmy Webb, Yotam Ottolenghi, Emma Freud, Glenn Tilbrook
Clive Anderson is joined by Boy George, Count Arthur Strong, Yotam Ottolenghi, Jimmy Webb and Emma Freud for conversation, music and comedy. With music from Glenn Tilbrook.
Clive's worshipping at the Church of the Poison Mind with singer-songwriter, DJ and Karma Chameleon Boy George. Following the success of New Wave soul pop band Culture Club, Boy George went on to be a succesful solo artist, DJ, author and fashion designer. He returns with 'This Is What I Do', his first studio album in eighteen years and performs 'King of Everything'.
Can you hear me, mother! Clive talks to Doncaster's finest show business legend, after-dinner speaker and expert in absolutely everything; Count Arthur Strong. 'Through It All I've Always Laughed' is the first volume, of what he believes may be a six volume collection of his memoirs. The book was written on a typewriter and is literally a compilation of selected letters from the alphabet formed into words, sentences, paragraphs and then chapters.
Emma Freud's dining al fresco with chef, cookery writer and restaurateur Yotam Ottolenghi, who's been travelling around some of the Meditteranean's most beautiful islands, tasting mouth-watering local dishes and creating feasts with his own unique twist. 'Ottolenghi's Mediterranean Island Feast' starts on Thursday 7th November at 21.00 on More4. Buon Appetito!
Clive's Up, Up and Away with songwriter and singer Jimmy Webb, whose platinum selling classics have been performed by the likes of The Supremes and Elvis Presley. For his new album 'Still Within The Sound Of My Voice', Jimmy has assembled some of the biggest stars in music, including David Crosby and Art Garfunkel to perform beautiful new versions from his extraordinary back catalogue.
And we're Squeezing yet more music in, from Glenn Tilbrook who performs 'Everybody Sometimes' from his forthcoming album 'Happy Ending.'
