The Works

8.30pm, Friday, 28th March, RTÉ One


In a career high for The Works, tonight we feature interviews with Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy about their new film, Muppets Most Wanted. Oh, and interviews with Ricky Gervais and a criminal muppet called Constantine. It's not easy being green. Kevin Gildea went to London to find out.


Continuing the amphibian theme, Emma Donoghue talks to Eithne Shortall about her novel, Frog Music, set in boomtown 1870s San Francisco and based on the real-life murder, known as the San Miguel Mystery, of a woman called Jenny Bonnet. www.emmadonoghue.com


In other non-frog news, English comedian/activist Mark Thomas brings his tour, 100 Acts of Minor Dissent, to Galway, Dublin, Derry and Letterkenny from 2nd to 5th April. Thomas really has been committing acts of dissent along the way - just ask the Apple store on Regent St, London about the flash mob invasion in June 2013 protesting their tax evasion. Kevin Gildea caught up with him at his Cardiff gig in March. www.markthomasinfo.co.uk


Singer songwriter James Vincent McMorrow is on the crest of a wave since the release of his current album Post Tropical. He plays the tune Red Dust on The Works tonight and talks to John Kelly. www.jamesvmcmorrow.com
