Welcome to the modern art museum, where hundreds of illustrators, graffiti taggers and fine artists offer up their services – with only one rule: you must take their work home on your skin.

I Am Slave, Channel 4<br/>The King Is Dead, BBC3

A chilling tale of modern-day slavery made for challenging bank holiday viewing. Even more challenging was BBC3's latest lunge at entertainment

Last Night's TV: Digging for Britain/BBC2<br />The King Is Dead/BBC3

We don't, says Dr Alice Roberts, the engaging host of Digging for Britain, know very much about the Anglo-Saxons. This is an immense relief to me. I can pretty much guarantee that I know less than most. In fact, I know virtually nothing: pre-modern history does, and probably always will, form an impenetrable black hole in my admittedly already pretty vacant brain. I'm not quite sure what it is: mention the Victorians and I'm all over it. But take me back to the fifth century and I back away like a rabbit in headlights. People then (at least this has always been my reasoning) were just so different. How can we possibly relate?

Pandora: Owen plots a return to the West End

Get ready for a rush to the box office. Clive Owen is on the hunt for a new play to star in.

Pandora: New job for Carter (it's not writing his memoirs)

What with the former Labour Party general secretary, Peter Watt, lining his pockets at the expense of Gordon Brown (and with a little help from The Mail On Sunday's syndication department), it may prove something of a relief to hear that his predecessor has little intention of following suit.

Observations: Rosie Oddie follows in her father's musical footsteps

Prepare yourselves for the latest daughter of a familiar face trying her luck in the music world. Rosie Oddie, daughter of TV twitcher Bill, comes with a husky singing voice. Her first appearance came rather tentatively a couple of years back as Rosie Oddie and the Odd Squad. Her band has forged a denser, more complex sound than their previous ska-pop shtick. It better suits this former schoolmate of Peaches Geldof's gritty, rock'n'roll vocal, that nods more to Skunk Anansie than Lily Allen.

Pandora: How Cotton thawed the icy Peaches

We hope Fearne Cotton hasn't bitten off more than she can chew with her series of documentaries for ITV2.

Daisy Lowe's adventures behind the lens

She famously graced the cover of I-D magazine in a naked embrace with boyfriend Will Cameron, fronted a raunchy Agent Provocateur campaign alongside Peaches Geldof, and was personally cast by Karl Lagerfeld to strut her stuff on Chanel’s catwalk. Now the model Daisy Lowe is taking a turn behind the camera, photographing her every move for Stories of the Eye, a collaborative online project in association with VICE and Olympus.

To view Daisy’s visual diary, and to start your own photo blog – with a chance to win a rather sexy Olympus Pen in the process – visit viceland.com/storiesoftheeye/daisy.php.

See Saturday’s Independent Magazine for an interview with Daisy.
