Irvine Welsh: podcast of an interesting interview where he discusses his take on the novel.

ITV - Irvine Welsh: "This South Bank Show about the controversial writer Irvine Welsh will surprise many people who see him soley as 'the Poet Laureate of the Chemical Generation'.

In a powerful interview with Melvyn Bragg, Irvine Welsh reveals that he takes a 'hard line on addiction' which he views as 'a disease of stupidity'.

Filmed at the Docker's Club in Leith (a hair's breadth away from where Irvine wrote Trainspotting), and walking with Melvyn around the local area, this film focuses substantially on his new novel, The Bedroom Secrets of the Master Chefs.

In a very relaxed interview Melvyn reveals Irvine to be a fitness fanatic - an image quite at odds with the received notion of an ex junkie and amoral wastrel."
