Clive Anderson is joined by David Morrissey, Andy Hamilton, Benjamin Zephaniah, Arthur Smith and Salena Godden. With music from Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott.

Clive's Outnumbered with screenwriter, comedian and director Andy Hamilton, whose new film 'What We Did On Our Holiday' is a hilarious journey through an unforgettable family trip as Doug and Abi (David Tennant and Rosamund Pike) attempt to keep their impending divorce secret from their extended family.

Award-winning actor, director, producer and screenwriter, David Morrissey is best known for his sterling TV performances in The Deal', 'State of Play' and the 'Red Riding' trilogy. David talks to Clive about being both Executive Producer and lead actor in 'The Driver', a tense thriller in which a depressed cabbie takes a job as a driver for a crime gang.

Arthur Smith chats to performance poet Salena Godden, whose memoir 'Springfield Road' charts her early years; growing up mixed-race in England in the '70s and '80s. Along with the painful and the difficult episodes of her life, Salena also celebrates the ridiculous and the beautiful.

Clive talks Propa Propaganda with dub poet, author and screenwriter Benjamin Zephaniah, who gained a reputation speaking out on local and international issues. Benjamin's new children's book 'Terror Kid' is a novel about a teenage boy called Rico Federico, who is drawn into a terrible crime he never intended to commit.

With music from Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott, formerly of The Beautiful South. Paul and Jacqui perform 'When it Was Ours', from their album 'What Have We Become' and 'Rotterdam' from The Beautiful South's album, 'Blue is The Colour'.

Producer: Sukey Firth.
