Tonight's TV Pick: A Short History Of Everything Else, And Borgen Gets Another Showing (PHOTOS)

A Short History of Everything Else - 10pm, Channel 4

Griff Rhys Jones is fast approaching National Treasure status, and he admitted even he was surprised recently when he went to film this series and saw himself on the monitor, with his grey hair and thick glasses.

"I thought, 'It's the bloke from Up.' "

And nostalgia is a big part of this gently-chuckling show, which challenges team captains Marcus Brigstoke and Charlie Baker to remember historical events (it's all relative, recent enough to have funny footage to hand), and head off on a light-hearted waffle to get more points. It's kind of Have I Got News For You without the political bite, and just more picture rounds instead - but it's sweet enough, and Griff's appeal is undentable (apart from when he's sitting next to Sandi Toksvig on a Jubilee boat - this is much preferable).

Borgen (repeat) - 11pm, BBC4

For the Nordic Noirettes among us, and there are many, this will be old news, but for the uninitiated, Borgen is proof that Denmark's capacity to make capturing drama does not stop at the police station and anti-social female coppers.

Birgitte Nyborg is forced by circumstance to lead Denmark's coalition government, where she is intent on preserving her ideals of honesty, integrity and fair dealing - and her marriage. This is a 10-episode treasure, so don't expect all of this to last beyond a couple of weeks.

Some Borgen piccies to give you a reminder...
