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.

Tim’s back on TV this weekend in the UK, showing off his beautiful Australian face to all who happen to tune in, and he’s certainly being interviewed by some interesting characters (no, it’s not The Muppets, unfortunately).

Tomorrow, 2nd December, he’ll be dropping into The Wright Stuff once again, to discuss the latest happenings in the news and debate other important issues, alongside Dominic Holland and Natalie Pinkham. You can catch this on Channel 5 (and Channel 5 HD) at 9:15am.

Then, at the weekend, Tim will be popping into T4 on Channel 4 (and Channel 4 HD) to do segments in between gripping programmes like the Hollyoaks omnibus and Professor Green Unseen. Unfortunately, we don’t know exactly when Tim will be on, but if we find out, we’ll be sure to update this post for you. UPDATE: Tim will be on, on the 3rd December, just before Made In Chelsea, at approximately 9:30am

Also, we are pleased to confirm that Tim will be appearing on the Jonathan Ross Show Christmas special, performing a brand new, especially written song. Wonder who it’ll be about this time…
