NOW aged 92, David Attenborough is still making remarkable television programmes. He promises that his forthcoming eight-part Netflix series Our Planet – which took four years to complete – will take viewers on ‘a spectacular journey’. I don’t doubt it for a moment.
AMONG the guests on tonight’s Ray D’Arcy Show is Kathleen Watkins, who’ll be talking about her new children’s books. Meanwhile, I will be taking the opportunity to check in on my local publican.
ACTOR Danny John-Jules (Red Dwarf, Death In Paradise) has reportedly been given a ‘final warning’ by BBC bosses over his alleged bullying behaviour towards Strictly Come Dancing partner Amy Dowden. He sounds like a right charmer.
EVEN though I’ve seen it before, I was going to watch Better Than The Original: The Joy Of The Cover Version – spoiler alert: it’s a music documentary – again on BBC4 tonight. But then I recalle that the contributors include Velvet Underground founder member John Cale. Given I paid good money this year to see Cale put on a shamefully lacklustre performance at the National Concert Hall, I think I’d end up putting my foot through the telly if I saw him on screen.
