Today's pick: Heroes of Comedy
Monday 26 January 1998
Looking after Jo Jo (9pm BBC2) Frank Deasy's drama documenting the arrival of the drugs trade in 1980s Scotland continues with the needle-sharing victims of Jo Jo's lucrative trade starting to go down with hepatitis. Something far worse beckons.
Face to Face (11.15pm BBC2) Joan Baez, a serene-looking advert for the joys of therapy, seems slightly amused by the arid format of this Reithian cross-examination. The protest singer tells Sir Jeremy Isaacs about her inner demons.
Airheads (9pm C5) OK, so it's not as good as Spinal Tap or Wayne's World - a tall order, anyway - or even Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. But then it's a quiet night movie-wise. Brendan Fraser, Steve Buscemi and Adam Sandler play three metalheads who bumble into a hostage situation when they raid a radio station with toy guns, hoping to get airtime for their demo tape. On the plus side: Joe Mantegna's in it (as a DJ), the direction is pretty vigorous (unlike the script) and it only lasts 90 minutes.
