I have put the question of whether advertising can be seen as art to friends, colleagues and family, and they all agree that it can be. They inevitably reel off adverts they remember over the years - if it involves surfing horses it must be art.
As the credits rolled up on my screen having watched the final episode of the fourth series of Downton Abbey (ITV, Sunday) I could not help thinking about the relationships that these various characters have created - upstairs and downstairs - and what a terrible mess most of them are in.
Derek is genuinely life-affirming. How many sitcoms capture the quiet, gradual, dignified, terrifying, wistful, relief-flecked prospect of death? Of recent comedies, only Jo Brand's masterful Getting On comes close.
Did you see the Live Show? The Food Tube team smashed it on Monday night pulling in our highest live audience to date thanks to some star turns including Jamie, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Kerryann, DJ BBQ, Gennaro and Michael from Vsauce.
Wounds were in the process of healing, but then Phoebe and Louise's late night escape rubbed salt into these wounds. I hoped the break would mend the damage within the girl group, but instead new bridges were built over the debris of others.
I am passionate about entrepreneurs and encouraging them to follow their dreams and start their own businesses. That's one of the main reasons I agreed to go on Dragons Den. I've been running my own business now for 37 years and gained a lot of experience which I want to share with others.
The World at War is one of the most ambitious documentary series ever made. A mammoth 26 hours charting key points in the history of World War Two.

This is one of the key findings of a recent research report published by the International Broadcasting Trust analysing non-news television coverage of the environment.
Television companies are looking to pick a completely fictional character from one of their many favourite TV shows to act as a replacement, using social buzz instead of Christmas cheer to deliver presents. Here are the candidates...
I have smoked for over five years ever since I started when I was in my teens working on Emmerdale. I have been trying to stop smoking for a while now - to help develop my singing career along with my acting - so Stoptober seemed the perfect opportunity to really try and quit for good.
There is absolutely nothing malicious in any facet of Bake Off. The contestants all seem to get along swimmingly, warmly congratulating each other on successes and commiserating with evictees rather than bounding off stage toward the next round, fists pumping.
Now that the much anticipated Season 3 of Homeland is well underway many viewers, including myself, may be thinking the writers should have called it quits after Season 2. They seemed to have lost the script.
Hannah Barratt took on a big Adele song and pulled it out of the bag. Fantastic vocal performance from a young starlet, destined to be a big success in the industry.
Jamie answered the question on the lips of households across the globe - how do you make the perfect fluffy rice? The answer is just a click away and before you say it, yes that is a very large teaspoon...
