Sport on TV: Don't try this at home – unless a consenting adult is on hand

It is well documented that city slickers have been living in a different world. But when the young corporate wannabes of The Apprentice (BBC1, Wednesday) had to design and market an item of "portable home fitness equipment" for under £30, it was still a shock when Ben the stockbroker suggested "something you can incorporate into having sex that creates resistance while you do it, some sort of springloaded..." He trailed off at that point, perhaps lost in his own fantasies. It certainly didn't sound like the sort of thing you could persuade someone to do for less than 30 quid.

Leading article: Press ahead with shaming hypocrites

When Max Mosley appeared before the Commons committee investigating press standards and privacy yesterday there was no doubt that he was appealing to a receptive audience.

The Sketch: Whatever you do, it's probably best not to overdo it

"There might be a perception I was over doing it," Max Mosley said, explaining his caution about taking the News of the World into court for a second time. He was keen not to overdo it. "My father overdid it," he explained and it hadn't worked out so well. True, fascists did overdo things in those days. As a matter of fact, I once saw film of Oswald Mosley overdoing it in front of 20,000 British fascists in Olympia in 1937. He made Barack Obama sound like Val Doonican. It was then I stopped listening to soaring rhetoric. I'd felt a prickle, you see. It was like listening to Lucifer.
