The Good Wife on More4 is in the midst of a reputation revision. Long-term fans of the smart, glossy legal drama, which began its fifth season on More4 last night, often complain it's not given the recognition it deserves.

The knack How to busk

"Find a busy spot with lots of `people traffic', making sure you're not in anybody's way - a nice disused shopfront will do. Put out something to collect money - an old hat, guitar case, a dog on a blanket - and put a few coins in yourself, including at least one pounds 1 coin to encourage likewise donations. That way, people won't think you're so awful that no one's given you anything. But don't put too much in or people might get the impression that you don't really need any more. Now all you need to do is to get people's attention. If you use your best song/trick/joke first, make sure you can follow it up - punters lose interest very quickly. Musicians - it's probably best to stick to popular, well-known pop songs which people will recognise instantly. Otherwise, invest in an unusual ethnic instrument
