The BBC has been unbelievably apathetic about making EastEnders a success in the US. For a few years, BBC America ran episodes nearly current with what was airing in Britain, and then cancelled the show in 2003 due to a supposed lack of ratings.

It's crazy to think my Voice journey started nearly seven months ago and here it's over in two weeks and in screen time all of 15 minutes. I've known the outcome of the battle for months now and it's been a long wait to finally see what happened that night, my memory was all a blur.

For nearly 25 years of wildlife filmmaking I have been quietly fascinated by the unsung heroes, the little creatures, that live beneath our feet. I have encouraged their inclusion in the odd sequence or two in many or the programmes I've been involved in from The Trials of Life to Africa.

So the third series of Luther is done and dusted, and what a finale. By now you've either seen it, about to watch on catch up, or have wandered onto this section by accident. Safe to say there are mild spoilers ahead.

We All Pay Your Benefits - An Exercise in 'Divide and Rule'

According to the BBC's programme information: "Nick Hewer and Margaret Mountford want to discover how much benefit is enough to live on and if work is worth it." The experiment promises to bring both groups together an effort to 'learn' their stories. Except, there's one huge problem with this premise - it presupposes the idea that anyone unfortunate enough to be unemployed pays no taxes.

Some Thoughts on The Voice and TV Talent Shows

Django Wylie | Posted 30.05.2013 | UK Entertainment
Django Wylie

The talent show derives its sense of fairness by appropriating the apparatus of democracy. We vote for our favourite singer (or at least the one with the most sympathetic cancer-related anecdote) and they are duly elevated to the plutocratic realm of celebrity, however transitory their tenure.

Elliot Gonzalez

I was invited over to BBC TV Centre to watch the recording of the fifth episode in the new series of Miranda. Having been to previous recordings in TV Centre I knew what to expect. However, more importantly than just the experience of watching the episode live, was the eagerness to see what Miranda Hart had in store for her much anticipated return.

Graham Booth

Just what sort of 'miracles' exactly? And what on Earth could they possibly have to do with 'The Hamster'? At least I hope that's what you're thinking. Because otherwise I've wasted the last 12 months of my life searching out unusual science stories from around the globe and turning them into three one-hour documentaries for BBC1 that absolutely nobody's going to watch.
