SAT 09:00 Paul O'Grady Stands Up for Liverpool (b01n1102)
Liverpudlian Paul O'Grady celebrates some of Merseyside's funny Scouse men and women including Arthur Askey, Rob Wilton, Tommy Handley, Kenny Everett, Ken Dodd, Jimmy Tarbuck, Alexei Sayle, Patricia Routledge and John Bishop.

* Big-hearted Arthur Askey was born in Liverpool in 1900 and went on to front Band Waggon, the first regular BBC radio comedy series. Russell Davies introduces an episode of Turns of the Century profiling the man who coined the famous phase "Ay-Thang-You."

* Rob Wilton's was a different catch-phrase, but like Arthur Askey, his comedy entertained millions during the war years, kicking off with those immortal words "The Day War Broke Out". Mark Radcliffe tells Rob's story in an episode of How Tickled Am I?

* ITMA, or It's That Man Again for those not in the know, was the radio home of Tommy Handley, a comedian who was struck down in his prime, bringing to an end one of the most popular radio comedy series the BBC has ever known. And sticking with comedy catchphrases, it was Tommy who first started using the acronym TTFN - long before instant messaging and mobile phone text speak!

* Ken Dodd loves a catch phrase too, and he loves his tickling stick. Fellow Liverpulian funny-man Ricky Tomlinson meets up with Doddy for a chat about his life.

* As radio revolutionaries go, they don't get much more radical than the late Kenny Everett. Well known on both commercial and BBC national radio, it's his time at local BBC Radio Merseyside that we hear about.

* Jimmy Tarbuck tells former Desert Island Discs presenter Sue Lawley how he got his start in comedy.

* Barry Cryer profiles a bit on an imposter to the programme - Patricia Routledge. As Paul O'Grady is quick to point out, Patricia hails from Birkenhead rather than Liverpool, but she's very welcome. The star of Keeping Up Appearances became best known for being the lady of the house at the notorious Bucket Residence.

* And finally, current star John Bishop chats to Desert Island Discs' Kirsty Young about the career change that took him from salesman to standup.

Producer: Elizabeth Clark

Episode 1

The birds are "never satisfied, never still". Charlie Barnecut reads Daphne du Maurier's chilling classic in three parts.

The novel was famously filmed for the cinema by Alfred Hitchcock in 1963. But don't expect anything like what was on the big screen here. This is Du Maurier's original story. In fact, the author disliked what Hitchcock did to her tale: particularly his translation of her setting from Cornwall - with its small fields and stone hedges - to small-town America.

As this original story opens, with the colder winter weather drawing in, Nat and his family notice the hungry birds are gathering in the village...

MON 11:15 Loose Ends (b01n0scp)
Lenny Henry, Paul Merton, Laurence Fox, Danny Wallace, Simon Garfield, Maia, Dog is Dead

Prepare to be tickled. Because this week Clive is joined by not one, but TWO giants of British comedy. Strap yourself in as Clive braces himself to discover the bizarre workings of Paul Merton's brain. The 'Just A Minute' jester famed for his off-the-cuff wit who brings a surreal seam to 'Have I Got News For You', muses on the mighty behemoth that is his noggin in his show 'Out Of My Head' at the Vaudeville Theatre London.

Keeping the laughs coming is Dudley boy done good Lenny Henry. Once voted Britain's Top Non-Smoker, Lenny recently swapped stand-up for Shakespeare and got a gong for his Othello. But now he's passed his grade 4 piano exam, is playing piano in public for the first time and going back to his comedy roots touring his one-man show 'Pop Life'.

No stranger to showbiz, Laurence Fox has acting in his blood. His dad is actor James Fox and then there's Uncle Edward and cousin Emilia. Best known as the brainy DS Hathaway from 'Inspector Morse' spin-off, 'Lewis', Laurence now plays a squaddie in 'Our Boys'. The award-winning story of five young soldiers whose lives are disrupted by the arrival of an officer fresh from Sandhurst is at the Duchess Theatre, London

And in a nod to the fact that we're living through the biggest mapping revolution since the 15th century, our very own radio Sat Nav, Danny Wallace is guided by writer Simon Garfield through some fascinating tales of cartographic intrigue as he discusses his book 'On The Map'.

Music comes from Dog Is Dead - billed by NME as 'main stage stars-in-waiting'. They play their new single 'Talk Through The Night'. No animals were harmed in this recording.

And alt.folk pop outfit Maia perform their latest track 'The Grandfather Plan'.

Producer: Cathie Mahoney.

Sorry, you know when you repeat a word so often it starts to go weird? "Sketch". Sketch! Ssssssketch. That's got it, better now. Anyway, there's a sketch about that.
