Two for the Price of One

http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2013-02-02/that-week-on-tv-the-joy-of-essex-bbc4-the-story-of-music-bbc2 A first for me, two programmes reviewed in the same piece and both excellent. Waiting for the backlash.

A Fitfully Beautiful Film

http://www.guardian.co.uk/tv-and-radio/2013/feb/02/wonders-life-brian-cox-tv-review The excellent Phil Hogan slightly befuddled by Jonathan. A quite natural reaction and one we intend.
