Last Night's Viewing: Steve Jobs: Billion Dollar Hippy, BBC2

Full disclosure: I'm writing this on a Mac (using Pages) and my iPhone – which yesterday obligingly turned itself into a transistor radio courtesy of an updated iPlayer app – is lying by my right hand. And, though I wouldn't usually feel the need to take you through my hardware choices before embarking on a review, it seems appropriate before tackling Steve Jobs: Billion Dollar Hippy, Evan Davis's profile of a businessman and innovator who aroused quasi-religious levels of devotion among some of his customers. Davis's film began with footage of weeping Apple acolytes in front of the impromptu shrines that sprung up around Apple stores when Jobs's death was announced earlier this year. Full disclosure part two: I didn't light a candle myself, either in wax-space or on an iPad, and I've never been an early adopter. Any real Apple fanboy would know I'm not the real thing.

A grande dame who won't conform

An unprecedented tribute from the Academy of Motion Pictures in mid-November and, earlier this week, a Best Supporting Actress gong at the British Independent Film Awards for her overpowering performance as Volumnia, the iron-willed matriarch in Ralph Fiennes's film version of Coriolanus. Not to mention all those reviews raving about her deeply funny and touching portrayal of a cantankerous, blinkered Southern matron in the West End hit, Driving Miss Daisy. It's been a season of luxuriant bouquets for Vanessa Redgrave. But there have been brickbats, too, and you cannot get to the essence of her art unless you also take these into account.

Last Night's Viewing: Charlie's Angels, E4<br />Frozen Planet, BBC1

But for the few remaining seasons of Mad Men and Breaking Bad, a golden age of American television is coming to a close. While the last decade was populated by vital original dramas, the next one promises the defibrillated corpses of long-dead shows: the new Hawaii Five-O, shaken awake for its second season; Beverly Hills 90210 MkII, now on its fourth; and Dallas, due for a Bobby Ewing-esque resurrection next summer. In the meantime, the undead Charlie's Angels comes shuffling into our sitting rooms like a zombie with a spray-tan.

READY TO WEAR . . . BACK TO REALITY

Corsages were popular until the 1950s, those good old days when your date still came to your door to pick you up; with his floral tribute to your bosom clutched in one hand, the keys to his dad's Ford Prefect in the other. Oh, the films I remember where the silly girl had double-booked herself, and she'd pick the suitor with the biggest bouquet. Thank goodness, then, that this great leveller of men is making a comeback.
