Coogan's straight run: from bonks to bungs

The price of fame for Steve Coogan has been the prying eyes of the tabloids. So why has the comedian taken on a straight acting role as Mike Gabbert, the newshound who exposed match-rigging in the Sixties? By James Rampton

BBC celebrates daytime revival

THE CRITICS TELEVISION: Expensive holidays in other people's misery

Did you realise that 1996 is Burma's "Year of the Tourist"? But John Pilger advises against visiting just yet. They're still getting the place ready - with slave labour. And there's that little matter of the democratic elections, in which Aung San Suu Kyi won 80 per cent of the vote. She's been under house-arrest ever since.

Storyboard 8 / Richard, Judy and OJ

Everything you need to know about a story you meant to read

'Isn't that Richard Madeley? I thought he was meant to be interviewing OJ Simpson at this very moment...'

If you want to get ahead, publish a diary. With the book-party season in full swing, that seems to be the lesson for thespian and rockular celebrities around town.

OJ lined up for Richard and Judy

OJ Simpson is flying to Britain to star in a new chat show with Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan for a nominal fee of pounds 1, programme makers said yesterday.

A new daytime dawns

For years it's been a formula: soap, agony and cosy chat. Now the stars of daytime TV are sharpening their act to please a new audience.

Swoon back

Herb Alpert, Burt Bacharach, Perry Como your hour has come again. The fashionable almost-young are going unaccountably soft. One hears a strange noise in the night and it certainly isn't techno. Report by Rosie Millard. Photographs by David Gamble

ANOTHER VIEW: Don't go, Richard and Judy

The relocation of Granada television's This Morning programme to a new London base has been presented almost exclusively as a matter of personal convenience for Richard and Judy, the show's presenters. They are tired of travelling, and finding it difficult to get big-name guests to travel to the programme, so it is goodbye to the heart of Granada television's operations in Liverpool.

Attacks on Christ film rejected

Viewers have flooded a television watchdog with complaints about Channel 4's screening of the controversial film The Last Temptation of Christ, it was disclosed yesterday.
