Radio 4 Extra to celebrate Steve Coogan's career.

 Steve Coogan is one of the most successful and influential British comedians, actors and writers of the past twenty five years. From Spitting Image voice artist to Academy Award nominee, his numerous talents have consistently shone through.

On 14 October 2015, he will be celebrating his 50th birthday and to honour this, Radio 4 Extra invited the novelist and screenwriter Frank Cottrell Boyce to talk to Steve about his life and career.

Rare and archive recordings featuring some of Steve's creations are accompanied by new interviews with people who have worked alongside him, including John Thomson, Henry Normal, Simon Greenall, Graham Duff, Sioned Wiliam and Steve Brown.

Knowing Steve, Knowing You will highlight that perhaps Steve's greatest talent is that of re-invention.

Listen in from 9am - Noon.
