The BBC's head of entertainment Danny Cohen insisted that he will put an end to all-male comedy panel shows, but I'm not entirely convinced its for the right reasons. Will the booking of more female panelists be seen as an honest recognition of the person's ability or simply an attempt to appease a growing movement?
Please, give me horrible, cruel, selfish, nihilistic female characters. Give me a female version of Rust Cohle. When I talk about good female characters I'm not asking for a paragon of virtue. That's the last thing I want.
It was a sad day when all those B to Z list celebrities hung up their skates and stopped dancing on frozen water on TV, so what's next? Well we have had Dancing on Ice (water), we still have Dancing on earth; Strictly Come Dancing... So let's listen to science for a moment and make sure we covered off the other elements!
It sounds like a distant planet in a dystopian sci fi movie, and the place itself doesn't disappoint. Welcome to Transnistria, a tiny strip of land measuring less than 15 miles wide. Long linked to organised crime, the government here doesn't take too kindly to journalists, so for a special report with Channel 4 News, we went in undercover.
As we reach the semi-final, the pressure is really on tonight. Who will make it and who will fall just short. The remaining eight are now ready to fight it out for a prized place in next weeks grand final.
It was Broadchurch wot won it. One programme has a habit of dominating the Broadcasting Press Guild awards in recent years. Last year it was Tom Stoppard's BBC2 adaptation, Parade's End; the year before that it was the same channel's Tom Hollander sitcom, Rev.
What I thought was going to be a light hearted entertainment show turned into a much deeper exploration of the role of men within society. Due to the rise of feminism, women are more successful than ever and it does leave you wondering if this shift in the sexes has turned some men (not ALL - but certainly the ones on the show) into boys?
City of Dogs is the first of a new three part series that explores compelling issues that plague a City suffering from an over population of stray dogs, a notorious healthcare system and high numbers of sex offenders.
Team Will get us up and running with Jermain and far from being a load of politics, it was in fact a solid start. Good vocal, loads of woohs and note perfect. Well done mate.
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.
A mockumentary about the BBC made by the BBC, it's too early to say if a satire whose hunter and quarry live in the same stable is ingenious or misguided. Instead, it seems timely (or the lowest form of hack opportunism to publish an article I've had marinating for months) to look back at the mockumentary as a genre...
It may turn out that Noel Edmonds and his consortium are not the right people to save the BBC. Nevertheless, it doesn't look good when a flagship BBC news programme mocks someone for showing an interest in transforming the broadcaster for the better. Whether Paxman likes it or not, the BBC has to change.
In a one-off documentary, Dr. Christian embarks on the therapy - through hidden cameras and candid interviews, he explores the dark, and deeply disturbing, world of conversion therapy.
To get this far, they have faced the blind audition and had to go one to one in the battle round. Tonight, it's one song, one chance. Welcome to the knockouts.
The connotations of fat are clear and calling someone so in an argument is really just making a sweeping generalisation and assertion about their character. As a society we believe that being fat equates to laziness, being unhealthy, unattractive, thick, unsuccessful and unpopular - it's little wonder that these three little letters are the go-to insult...
Why are we so obsessed with reuniting fictional characters and losing weight? Well the latter may need its own blog but for now let's talk about; Friends: The one with the reunion.
