VINCENT OSBORNE'S accent belongs neither to south London nor the West Indies; it rather suggests Eton and Oxford - which is surprising, since Vincent, featured in Channel 4's Electric Avenue, is a Brixton restaurateur desperate to establish a new base there. The cut-glass accent is the hook in a documentary series full of engaging local characters; the foil is Garth - builder, handyman and amateur philosopher - whom Vincent engages to get his new restaurant ready on time (deadline: two weeks). One projected opening day passes, then another as Vincent's backers get anxious; the loo isn't ready for inspection and the Bishop of Stepney is called in to exorcise the demons. It's not easy opening a restaurant these days, is it? RB

Electric Avenue' is on C4, Tuesday at 11.40pm
