The BBC 1 autumn programming line-up includes little of note. Exceptions are: Michael Palin's latest epic travel beano, Pole to Pole; Sitting Pretty, a new sitcom from Only Fools and Horses' writer John Sullivan about good-time Annie, the Jackie Onassis of Bethnal Green; and a promising Inside Story about undertakers, from veteran rat-catchers and cockroach-baiters Charles Stewart and Malcolm Hirst. The rest is business as usual: Noel, Esther, Anneka and, yes, Wogan's back.
