Communities the length of the country are eroding and people are less and less integrated by allegiance to township or village life. This is what we found first hand when travelling the UK for our recent TV show Construction Squad: Operation Homefront.
When Gail is visiting her son in hospital, it is Stella who suggests bringing a 'bottle' over the following day. When Chesney is feeling "a bit down", Tyrone pops is head in with eight cans of lager. Now I don't mean to sound like a miserable sod, but how many of us are guzzling back seven nights a week? If you are, please get help.
The new wave is here and hard at work: Neil Maskell, Ed Skrein, Paul Anderson, Vicky McClure, Michael Smiley, Johnny Harris, Martin Compston, Kieron Hawkes, Jacob Anderson, Matt Morgan and Shane Meadows are all people Hartley calls friends and collaborators.
In a sense, Top Boy does contribute and feed into negative racial stereotypes. However, as I said before, these are real stories and do depict real life situations. The majority of inhabitants on many a London estate are black or ethnic minority, but these are not the only stories.
Many viewers have said that this series of Big Brother was Channel 5's best ever. Actually, last years in my opinion was a LOT better. Even from the first few weeks I could tell that this year was not going to be anywhere near as entertaining or controversial as the events that took place in last year's house.
My name is Sarah Gordy and I am an actress. I also happen to have Down's syndrome.I was in the show called Upstairs Downstairs, which I loved. It was a drama series on BBC One and it was on from 2010 to 2012. After the series I got to appear on TV chat shows and talk to newspapers in the UK.
It is rare to watch a TV show in 2013 and realise, within about 15 minutes, that it might be one of the best British dramas of all time. But Channel 4's Southcliffe, which finished on Sunday, is something really rather special.
It's not the greatest TV drama you'll see all year, but as a mid-August slice of escapism it wasn't bad, even if it featured all the usual trappings of a Stephen King-inspired tale.
If you ever find yourself in need of crystal meth candy or bath salts (the kind you really do put in your bath) Albequerque's got what you're looking for. Following on the heels of the likes of Baltimore and New Jersey, it's the latest in a long line of locations to milk the cult status of a tv show - in this case HBO's Breaking Bad.
Once you throw beauty, confidence and being self-assured into the mix, women almost have no hope for sympathy. And it is something that continues to exasperate and frustrate the hell out of me. It baffles me how women in particular sided with Daley and painted Hazel as some kind of scarlet woman.
Around 600,000 young people in the UK are on school holidays right now. That means unlimited sunbathing, chilling with mates and dreaming about exciting futures, right? Wrong. In fact, thousands of young people feel hopeless about life after school.
Jamie is so hands-on, it's his baby and he loves it; and he really loves getting creative and pushing the boundaries of food broadcasting; I can say that I haven't had this much fun making programmes in a very long time.
We've got a booming film and TV industry thanks to these two incredible and inspiring female role models, yet we make it so hard for women to return to work after having a child. Surely it is time for broadcaster and filmmakers to think again?
We are either heroic paralympians or more likely miserable benefit claimants living a life comparable to being in a Victorian work house. But disabled people are three dimensional characters who have plenty to offer society, plenty of wonderful experiences to enjoy, and can lead amazing lives in a way that is just normal.
The rise of social media over the past ten years has radically changed how we perceive "celebrities" and the corporate machine around them.
The first episode of Series 11 of Dragons' Den aired on Sunday and I have to admit that I was at the edge of my seat watching the start. It was that mix of excitement and nervousness, wondering how I'd be perceived as one of the newest Dragons.
