WE'RE ALL glad that apartheid is over and hope that things go well for the nascent democracy, but Snapshots from the New South Africa (11am R4) is so gladsome it takes the edge off your fervour - Thembi Mutch is much more interested in piety than reporting, asserting that "mutual respect and humanity" is a central tenet of South African life and, at a women's building project, "Women are rebuilding - in practical terms! They're making bricks!"

Songlines (3.30pm R4) is all about the origins of well-known songs, presented by David Stafford, formerly of Going Places. Today, he discusses "Ilkley Moor Bah T'at" with - wait for it - Richard Whiteley and Bill Oddie (right). Roll on oblivion.
