Tim is going to be gracing the airwaves twice this Monday, 5th December, with his soothing Aussie lilt!

The Infinite Monkey Cage

First up, he’ll be appearing on The Infinite Monkey Cage to talk about The Origins of Life with guests Adam Rutherford and Dr Nick Lane and hosts Robin Ince and Brian Cox. This will be aired on Radio 4 at 4:30pm, with a repeat at 11pm on the 6th December.

The Infinite Monkey Cage Panel - (l-r) Dr Nick Lane, Adam Rutherford, Brian Cox, Robin Ince and Tim Minchin

The show is listenable to outside of the UK and will be on iPlayer for seven days. A podcast will also be made available, which you’ll be able to grab here.

Radio 1’s Stories – The Story of Tim Minchin

Then, excitingly, at 9pm on Radio 1, Tim is going to be the subject of an hour-long documentaryThe Story of Tim Minchin! The doco will feature in-depth conversations with Tim as well as interviews with celebrities such as Derren Brown and Sheridan Smith, charting his rise to fame in the UK, and discussing how this past year has been something of a turning point for him.

The Radio 1’s Stories website also has some exclusive photos from backstage and the soundcheck at the gigs at the Royal Albert Hall earlier this year – you can check those lovely things out here.

Like The Infinite Monkey Cage, this will be also available to listen to outside the UK both live and on iPlayer for a week afterwards. It’ll also be available as podcast for a week here, however, this will, unfortunately, only be available for those in the UK. UPDATE: the podcast will now be available worldwide.

My son first introduced me to Tim Minchin when he gave me his first dvd for my Christmas. What a lovely man Tim is, humourous, clever, a brilliant performer. I wish I lived nearer to London, I’d love to see ‘Matilda’.

Marina Stern on 4th of December 2011

Huzzah for making the shows available in the US!
