December's A Month of Sundays turns into A Month of Matinees as Simon Pegg hosts the first of four shows presented by British actors or directors.

Writer, comedian and director Simon Pegg launches A Month of Matinees with two hours of music that's helped to shape his career and personal life. Simon takes us back to the days of being a Goth, which he decided wasn't for him following a painful wardrobe malfunction. We hear of scrapes with Jay Z, Coldplay's Chris Martin walking around with his trousers down and attacking Zombies with limited edition vinyl. The Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz star gives us an insight into the thinking process behind these scripts and where he gets his inspiration from. And yes Trekky fans, Simon tells us what it's like to operate the Starship Enterprise.

The other presenters for A Month of Matinees are Martin Freeman (13th Dec),
Edgar Wright (20th Dec) and Bill Nighy (27th Dec).

A Month of Matinees continues with the British film director Edgar Wright.
Making his name as the director of the cult British comedy TV show Spaced Edgar has gone on to direct the two biggest British comedy films in recent years - Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Today he plays tunes from his record collection and explains how certain music comes to be used in certain parts of films. There's also an insight into his favourite work in other soundtracks.
Missed them both!

Will listen to Edgar's on iplayer later though, if I remember, that is.
