At a stroke: ‘Liberty of London’ featured Lee Whittle (in blue shirt) the store’s general manager, here with the managing director, Ed Burstell (holding dog)

Liberty of London, TV review: It's fun to watch the follies of the rich, but haven't we had our fill of posh porn?

Posh people, as it's been noted elsewhere, are so hot right now. And not just because they've got back from a fortnight on the yacht. Though that helps.

Confessions of a Secretary, TV review: The "good old days" were in fact nothing of the kind

Spider House, BBC4 - review: Enough to make ardent arachnophobes think twice

I'd wager my old VHS copy of Arachnophobia that for a significant percentage of the channel-hopping population, alighting upon BBC4's Spider House caused a reaction equivalent – in TV-watching terms – to reaching for a rolled-up copy of The Daily Telegraph and blindly thwacking away in panic.

When worlds collide: ‘Particle Fever: the Hunt for Higgs Boson’

Particle Fever: the Hunt for Higgs Boson, TV review: Blown away by a mind-boggling science lesson with universal appeal

In 2009, a rival national newspaper played a game where it asked a writer who hadn't seen Star Wars to approximate the plot based on what he picked up in passing. His outline wasn't a million miles away from the actual movie: "Their heroic captain is called Luke Skywalker and he is joined by their man-shaped pet Chewbacca, a 2ft robot, and Princess Leah." Close enough, right?
