What can be said about Ed Reardon that the man himself could not write with greater style and elan? The man who once ghost-wrote a book for Sooty is never lost for words. Even his recent theft of Edam from a BBC redundancy party cannot keep him off-air for long.

The scourge of the railway fare tariff has hand-picked six chapters of his life to share with you, in a retrospective already hailed as "a collection of programmes".

Finally the author of Who Would Fardels Bear is set to receive his due. Or would do, if we could keep him out of the betting shop and in the studio long enough to get his links recorded.

Ed's recent output includes the Stig's Xmas Book of Speed Camera Locations, but there's no denying the sheer artistic power of the man, as he applies his singular talent to children's TV, misery memoirs, Original British Drama and even breaking a window.

Produced by Martin Dempsey.

Sir Michael Parkinson, Brian Sewell, Mitch Albom, Susan Calman, Resonators and Punch Brothers

Clive chats to broadcaster, journalist and doyen of British talkshow hosts, Sir Michael Parkinson, who returns to our TV screens doing what he does best. He's grilled everyone; from Fred Astaire to Madonna and in 'Parkinson: Masterclass', Sir Michael conducts interviews with an array of superstar guests from the artistic spectrum. The series begins on Tuesday 13th November at 21.00 on Sky Arts.

Clive gets some perspective with art critic Brian Sewell, who talks about the second instalment of his scandalous and haunting memoir 'Outsider II - Always Almost: Never Quite'. The final chapter charts his path to becoming, as The Spectator noted, 'Surely the funniest art critic of our time'.

Jo Bunting gets the giggles with former lawyer and now award-winning comedian Susan Calman. She now shoots from the hip in her personal and political show 'This Lady's Not for Turning Either' which chronicles how she met and wed the love of her life in a civil ceremony. Susan's at London's Soho Theatre from Tuesday 13th to Saturday 24th November.

Clive's just in time to talk to international bestselling author, journalist and broadcaster Mitch Albom. His book 'Tuesday's with Morrie' recounts the life-changing time he spent with his 78-year-old sociology professor, Morrie Schwartz and is one of the top selling memoirs of all time. Mitch's new novel 'The Time Keeper' sees the inventor of the world's first clock punished for trying to measure time.

We're skanking with nine-piece dub reggae band Resonators who play 'Try Again' from their new album 'The Constant' .

And some Musical Youth from progressive bluegrass band Punch Brothers, who perform 'Movement and Location' from their acclaimed album 'Who's Feeling Young Now?'
