Current Affairs: Cross purposes

WHERE TO GO, WHAT TO SEE, WHAT TO DO
Election Day: Voting 7am-10pm. Then it's the turn of the Dimblebys and Co. On BBC David D leads the way with Peter Snow and his huge "virtual reality" swingometer, plus new boy Jeremy Paxman in an interviewing studio "lair". Brother Jonathan heads ITV's challenge, with Sue Lawley and Alastair Burnett and, God help us, a full-scale virtual reality House of Commons. On the radio (4) it's James Naughtie for less over-excitement. Coverage: BBC1 9:55pm Radio 4/5/ITV most regions 10pm.

Or ... you could take out the new video of the brilliant movie Breaking the Waves, set far away from the wilds of Westminster in a windswept Scottish hamlet and directed by Lars von Trier. Oscar-nominated Emily Watson in the lead role. (18, Fox Guild, rental, available today)
