Richard is one week into convalescence after surgery, but was his interviewing skill housed in his lost part? He's worried about some bonus gifts he got in a box of jockstraps and about Ian Amazon trying to steal his schtick. His guest does not suffer fools gladly, which might make the next 75 minutes a bit uncomfortable - it's Packahontas himself, Jeremy Paxman.

They discuss holding John Gielgud's penis, shooting squirrels on the toilet, having lunch with Lady Di, whether we need the BBC, the bizarre procedure that newsreaders were expected to go through in the event of the death of a member of the Royal Family, being responsible for bringing Boris Johnson to TV and why anyone would want to be a comedian.
