Diary: Oh Lord, Webber junior

There was J S Bach the Elder and his nephew, the Younger. There was Johann Strauss 1 and the more talented II. Now a new Lloyd Webber is abroad. Nick Webber, 30, son of the great man, former pop group wrangler and jingle composer, has gone legit. He's doing the music for the RSC's new touring production of The Tempest, orchestra, brass, woodwinds, the whole shebang. His papa must be proud. But what do we find Nick telling an interviewer in The Stage? "Instead of the traditional masque, we've done a sort of nightmare wedding as a mini-operetta in four minutes. It's very funny, and ends up as a chaotic, awfully choreographed piece of music and dance, which is my little nod, shall we say, to a certain legacy of mine." Thanks a lot, kid.

Last Night's TV: Sectioned, BBC4<br />Young, British and Angry, BBC3

Sectioned began with a broadcaster's Get-out-of-Jail-Free card. "All the patients appearing in this film were constantly monitored by their healthcare team," it said, "who considered them mentally well enough to take part." We're not exploiting them, in other words. And then, just in case you might still have doubts about the ethical probity of the enterprise, all three of the men who appeared in the film were shown giving their permission orally, on camera. Which still didn't entirely resolve the doubts, to be honest. Given that Richard believes the gods have told him to commit suicide on Christmas Day on the grounds that he'll be able to go to Hell, get a spiritual top-up and then commence his training as King of England, you couldn't help but feel that his capacity to sign any kind of consent form might be a touch impaired. The other two patients – Andrew, a former NHS consultant who'd been compulsorily admitted after leading three police cars in a high-speed chase, and Anthony, who has paranoid schizophrenia – both appeared more rational, but still raised the issue of whether permission granted during a period of lucidity could extend, weeks later, to a moment of greater vulnerability.
