Last night's viewing - Ian Hislop: When Bankers Were Good, BBC2; John Steinbeck: Voice of America, BBC4; Storyville: Deadline – The New York Times, BBC4

Ian Hislop now seems to have graduated to above-the-title billing, earning himself what you might call Colon Status in the schedules. This is where the name of the presenter comes first and the programme is just an afterthought, as in Ian Hislop: When Bankers Were Good. In the scheduling honours system, it's a signal mark of distinction, though it falls just short of the top rung of celeb presenter honorifics, which is Apostrophe Status (as in "Ian Hislop's When Bankers Were Good"). Perhaps the most telling thing about that title, though, was its confident prejudice, the assumption that nobody would mind the implication that all bankers are now bad. I suppose bankers might feel wounded by this assumption, but then who cares about bankers' feelings these days?

Cain, By José Saramago, trans. Margaret Jull Costa

Abel and Cain have each made an offering to God. Abel's is accepted, Cain's rejected. In a fit of jealousy, Cain murders his brother. When God asks where Abel has got to, Cain replies tetchily, "Am I my brother's keeper?" God discovers the murder, and Cain is punished. He will live, but he will be forever marked, and condemned to wander the earth.
