DOOM, Adjoa Andoh, Andy Hamilton, Anneka Rice and Jonathan Harvey

The Dead Donkey makes the headlines this week as Clive chats to Andy Hamilton about his new comedy, 'Just Around the Corner', co-written with Guy Jenkin, and part of Channel 4's Funny Fortnight. It's the story of a suburban family set in the flooded, warm and bank-free future - a kind of "Mad Max meets The Good Life".

From one dog-eat-dog world to another - Clive finds himself in the Roman Capital with actress Anjoa Andoh who is currently playing the part of Portia in Shakespeare's 'Julius Caesar' at the Noel Coward Theatre in London. It's a famliar story of power politics, bloody murder, corruption and treachery in this spectacular RSC production transposed to an African setting.

Jo Bunting meets Beautiful Thing Jonathan Harvey whose debut novel 'All She Wants' introduces us to loveable Liverpudlian girl, Jodie McGee - the girl next door who becomes 'the girl off the telly'. In Jodie's words: 'This is my story. It's dead tragic. You have been warned.'.

And it's Challenge Clive as he pulls on his jumpsuit and races to meet golden girl Anneka Rice to find about her new BBC1 series, 'The Flowerpot Gang'. Alongside Phil Tufnell and Joe Swift, their goal is to transform neglected outdoor plots of land into inspiring and life-changing spaces for communities across Britain.

Music comes from the masked hip-hop maverick, DOOM whose album, JJ Doom 'Key to the Kuffs', features Beth Gibbons and Damon Albarn. JJ comes from the initals of collaborator producer / vocalist Jneiro Jarel. This is DOOM's debut radio performance, perhaps after it, he'll call himself LE DOOM? And he plays 'Winter Blues'.

And Scottish folk musician, James Yorkston, plays 'Border Song' from his new album, 'I Was A Cat From A Book'

Producer Cathie Mahoney.

MON 23:30 Micky Flanagan: What Chance Change? (b00sg13d)
1970s

Cockney geezer Micky Flanagan regales us with the story of his journey from tabloid to broadsheet; from the street party to the dinner party; from apples and pears to stocks and shares... Well you've got the idea.

Each week's episode focuses on a different decade of Micky's life. Micky regales us with stories from his life told through stand up comedy. In between, the programmes goes 'behind the scenes' with short interviews that give an insight into the stand up.

In this opening episode Micky talks about growing up in the East End in the 1970's. He chats to his school friends about their shared experiences of leaving with no qualifications to work at Billingsgate Fish Market. He also interviews Sociology Professor Paul Willis about his research on working class boys in a 1970's school.

Micky's transition from the mean streets of the East End, working as a Billingsgate Fish Porter to an entertainer living in the leafy lanes of Dulwich is a fascinating story, all the better for being told through jokes. The issue of class is a crucial theme in Micky's stand up. However it is framed less as "Do we now have a classless society?" and more as "Is it ok to ask for Tomato sauce in a fancy French restaurant?"

The series is written and performed by Micky Flanagan.
The producer is Tilusha Ghelani.

Series 2

You're Leaving

Harvey Easter (played by Mark Benton), 46, is the eternal optimist. He is able to see the good in every situation, the silver lining within every cloud, the bright side to every bit of bad news.

This, however, is his downfall. Someone for whom the glass is always half-full can be difficult to live with, as his wife of 19 years, Jacqui (played by Claire Skinner), knows all too well. Even as life deals Harvey and the Easter family a series of sadistic blows, Harvey looks on the positive side. It's pathological with him. The way Jax sees it, instead of dealing with the problems of their marriage and their teenage kids, Harvey's optimism is actually his way of avoiding engagement with the big issues.

Mr Blue Sky is about one man battling to remain positive in moments of crisis, and one woman battling to live with someone who has his head in the clouds.

This week, Harvey's racist mum, Lou, moves in while she grieves for her plumber boyfriend and drives Jax out of the house, but will she give her blessing to Charlie and Kill-R's wedding when they fix a date?

Series 2

Catchment if You Can

Ronnie Corbett reunites with the writers of his hit sitcom Sorry, Ian Davidson and Peter Vincent. Sorry ran for seven series on BBC 1 and was number one in the UK ratings.

In the second series of their Radio 4 sitcom, Ronnie plays Sandy Hopper, who is growing old happily along with his dog Henry. His grown up children - both married to people Sandy doesn't approve of at all - would like him to move out of the family home so they can get their hands on their money earlier.

But Sandy's not having this. He's not moving until the dog dies. And not just that, how can he move if he's got a lodger? His daughter is convinced that his too attractive lodger Dolores (Liza Tarbuck) is after Sandy and his money.

Luckily, Sandy has three grandchildren and sometimes a friendly word, a kindly hand on the shoulder can really help a Granddad in the twenty-first century. Man and dog together face a complicated world. There's every chance they'll make it more so.

Sandy's quiet life is shattered by the need to make himself scarce while his daughter Ellie and his son-in-law Blake pretend, for reasons of social mobility and educational opportunity, that his address is their address. Hiding in the shed doesn't seem right for someone who dreams of being a hero. Not in the world's eye, perhaps - but certainly in his grandson Tyson's.

Ronnie Corbett ..... Sandy
Liza Tarbuck ...... Dolores
Sally Grace ..... Mrs Pompom

Then of course there are Ramesh's sons Sanjay and Alok, both surly and not particularly keen on the old school approach to shopkeeping, but natural successors to the business, and Ramesh is keen to pass all his worldly wisdom onto them whether they like it or not!
