Observations: Music to save the world by

So what do you get for the Doctor Who fan who already has the DVDs, sonic screwdriver, remote-controlled Dalek and life-size cardboard cut-out of a Cyberman? Well, there's always the soundtrack to Series Four, composed by four times Bafta-nominated Murray Gold. It's unlikely to convert those who objected to the Doctor Who Prom this year – the soft rock of "UNIT Rocks" and Carmina Burana-esque "The Dark and Endless Dalek Night" are a long way from Wagner – but Gold is rightly noted for his television work, having collaborated with Russell T Davies on Queer as Folk and Casanova.

The Weekend's TV: British B Movies &ndash; Truly, Madly, Cheaply, Sat, BBC4<br />Doctor Who, Sat, BBC1

One of the great problems with television today is that it doesn't offer children enough opportunities to see rubbishy old films. Back when I was growing up, in the Seventies, television had very little to offer on a wet weekend afternoon beyond wrestling on ITV and the occasional film on BBC2. Not being one for the wrestling, I grew up with a thorough grounding in early British thrillers, the Westerns of Randolph Scott, and the comedies of the Boulting Brothers – the kind of knowledge you can't put a price on. But now, when the weather turns nasty and I'm too busy Facebooking to let them on the computer, my children are faced with reruns of Friends, and programmes actually intended for children. What is that going to teach them?
