Hit & Run: Saviours of Friday TV?

Perhaps it's the beard wot done it. Adrian Chiles's controversial face fur arguably doesn't cut it on Friday nights when, it was confirmed this week, Chris Evans (pictured, top), will occupy The One Show sofa alongside the sufficiently glamorous Christine Bleakley. BBC bosses expect Evans, the clean-cut (well, clean-shaven) new star of mainstream BBC programming, to sprinkle the 7pm magazine show with a bit of stardust in a new-look end-of-week edition. Expect sharper suits and more purple – a house band, perhaps.

Outside Edge (14/03/10)

Aptly named Nicholas Newlife, a gambler from Kidlington in Oxford, bequeathed his estate – and all outstanding bets – to Oxfam when he died. The charity reaped £16,750 after he bet Roger Federer would win 14 Grand Slams by 2020 and will gain a further £101,840 if Federer wins Wimbledon again in the next 10 years. So stop cheering for Murray! The total will reach £330,000 if all the bets Newlife laid pay out. And 14-year-old Paralympic swimmer Lyndon Longhorne was handed a box of Liquorice Allsorts stuffed with £5,000 by a mystery elderly couple (not Mr & Mrs Bertie Bassett) in the playground of his school in Bishop Auckland to help his plans to compete in London in 2012. It takes all sorts.

Last Night's Television: Radiohead: The Dave Fanning Interview, Sky Arts 1<br />Shooting Stars, BBC2

As one of those shoegazing, introspective, less-intelligent-than-he-thinks-he-is teenagers who was just entering the sixth form when Radiohead's OK Computer was released in 1997, like half the population I have followed Thom Yorke et al's careers slightly too closely over the ensuing decade. Their "pay what you like" October 2007 album release, In Rainbows, was one of the deftest-timed two-fingered salutes to the music industry in recent memory, so you can't exactly knock their commitment to the cause, or indeed their artistry, but recently there has been something of a chink emerging in their armour of untouchability: Yorke's television appearances. Just recapping quickly, they've been of changeable quality, if that. There were the awkward video-link acceptance speeches throughout the 1990s, there was Grant Gee's heavily stylised 1998 rockumentary Meeting People Is Easy (where all that cinematographic overkill did a great job of substituting journalistic insight) and at least one teeth-grindingly strange turn on Jonathan Ross's couch where Yorke was so overcome with unease that he attempted to mimic Ross's Leytonstone accent (it's so bad that you want to tear your face off). That's not even going into the cameo he made on the 2007's Big Fat Quiz of the Year, in which his laugh was so, er, boundary-defying, that the studio's array of so-sarky panellists (Lily Allen, Russell Brand) were uncharacteristically dumbstruck into yet more embarrassed and pregnant silences.
