DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Gon GEM at 10.45 this morn­ing. Peo­ple are al­ways whinge­ing about how there isn’t enough chil­dren’s pro­gram­ming (rub­bish) – so what’s wrong with this?

Bet­ter than Grandpa in my Pocket over on ABC2, which ap­par­ently is meant to be a kids’ show. Grandpa in my EE, it’s go­ing to be hard to go past Carry On Scream­ing! Pocket . . . I don’t think so. Tech­ni­cally Satur­days on freeto-air should be your favourite time of the week. New episodes of Doc Martin, Agatha Christie of un­known prove­nance, and I mean, why wouldn’t you spend four hours of your life watch­ing Lord of the Rings: The Two Tow­ers? Un­less the Lord of the Rings episode of Four Wed­dings gave you all the Gol­lum you could take. Does three hours and 40 min­utes seem like enough time to you? Its on GO! so there are ads, and I just hope they don’t find them­selves eat­ing into Eclipse Mu­sic TV.

And ob­vi­ously there’s 7Mate, do­ing the right thing by ev­ery­one all week and run­ning a fes­ti­val of Bond. Some of that ar­chi­tec­ture – amaz­ing. And I’m not talk­ing about Pussy Ga­lore’s foun­da­tion gar­ments

Con­flict: Ro­man Polan­ski
