News David Icke has launched The People's Voice, a new free internet TV station

Conspiracy theorist says new station will 'give people who are currently voiceless in the mainstream media their say'

How We Met; Edward Enfield and Lorraine Chase

Writer and broadcaster Edward Enfield, 68, was educated at Westminster School and Oxford. He worked in the Far East and in local government until retirement, when he began writing; one of his four children, the comedian Harry Enfield, sent some of his work to Richard Ingrams, who immediately gave him a regular column in the 'Oldie' magazine. He now co-presents 'Watchdog' and 'Oldie TV', and lives with his wife in Sussex. The actress Lorraine Chase, 46, was born in Camberwell, south London, and worked as a model before being catapulted to fame by Campari's famous 'Luton airport' advert in the Seventies. Chase recently published her first book, 'Money and How to Make More of It', and lives alone in London

Radio: Moving in Mysterious Ways

This Column is about heroes. It is not really about Terry Wogan (R2), though as I'm feeling slightly ashamed of being unkind about his singing for charity last week, here's a bouquet for him: he is unparalleled amongst breakfast presenters for his gift of stepping into his solitary listener's life, eg, "The Bishop of Southwark will be here soon, so I want you to smarten yourself up a bit: he's fully dressed ..."

Comedy: On the sofa with Lee not Herring

`This Morning with Richard Not Judy II' might seem like a send up of the king and queen of daytime TV. But, says Stewart Lee, it stems from a genuine admiration

"We're the no hair people," joked Pete Myers, 58, introducing the cast of original BBC Radio 1 disc jockeys assembled on the steps of All Soul's Church outside Broadcasting House.

Broadcaster from Hell

What would make an otherwise sane farmer's widow from Devon pack up her bags, withdraw pounds 7,500 from her bank account and travel all the way to Hell? Terry Wogan, of course. Sue Gaisford joins Terry's Old Gals as they keep him company in the middle of nowhere

The pointless tale of the reign of King Terry

If you tuned in to The Man Who Would Be King (BBC2) expecting an update on the royal succession controversy, you were quickly disabused. "My name is Terry Venables" said a stocky, greying man in a tracksuit. Then he said it again. And again. Danny Baker appeared, and yelled "Oh, giant awake, it's Terry Venables!" Terry Wogan announced "It's Terry Venables!" and finally the narrator, John Inverdale, solemnly proclaimed: "This is the Terry Venables story." Attention viewers: this is not a programme about Prince Charles. It's TV TV.

The Critics Radio: Eurovision? Pass the stewed slugs please

I was driving home on Thursday morning, listening, with an Aristotelian surge of pity and fear, to the news that some poor mother had been fined for not getting her children to school on time. I hadn't realised it was an offence. Fearful of identifying further criminal tendencies in my daily routine, I switched off and enjoyed the silence.
