Science hasn't been in the best of shape on British television recently. Equinox seems to have disappeared into some broadcasting black hole, Horizon has been steadily regressing into second childhood and mainstream offerings – such as Bang Goes the Theory – appear to be pitched at a hyperactive seven-year-old out of his skull on SunnyD. There are sporadic efflorescences of the serious on BBC2, but if you want something sustained and detailed your last best hope is BBC4, a little cranny in the rock that sustains some flourishing micro-cultures of straightforward instruction. And even here there are signs that the evolutionary pressures are having their effect. In The Cell, for example, Dr Adam Rutherford referred to Anthony van Leeuwenhoek as "a lens geek", to Robert Hooke as "the go-to guy when you had very small things to investigate", and concluded a little aside on Robert Brown's unique double contribution to physics and biology with the exclamation "Respect!", possibly the least convincing attempt to sound "street" since Richard Madeley channelled Ali G on the This Morning sofa.

I should probably face it: I'm never going to look like Matthew McConaughey. I'll never have those locks, those pecs, that smug grin. But by watching his movies, atrocious though they are, I might learn what makes him so irresistible to women. In his new film Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, for example, McConaughey seduces his way through most of the models in North America, sabotage his brother's wedding, and snare Jennifer Garner.

It is proper to query Caroline Kennedy putting herself forward as the best person to take Hillary Clinton's US Senate Seat. According to Gary Ackerman, a congressman from New York, and a Democrat, she doesn't have any qualifications, "except that she has name recognition – but so does J Lo".

Dolce & Gabbana returned to their usual sexy Sicilian aesthetic yesterday. The classic ingredients were all there: baroque extravagance, references to Italian cinema – this time it was "The elegance of Luchino Visconti" – and 1950s-style corsetry. The twist came from experimenting with men's pyjamas and fabrics. These pyjamas were a very literal take on the theme. Apart from their pristine hair and make-up, the models looked as if they had just got out of their boyfriends' beds and imparted a seductive symmetry to the whole collection.
