Creamguide’s pick of the day

  • The Risk Makers, Saturday, 20.00, BBC Radio 4

    There’s a great bit in one of Frank Skinner’s books paying tribute to Colin Jackson for his memorable performance on the final of Strictly years ago, where alongside Erin Boag he cocked up the showdance quite spectacularly by deciding not to do a load of greatest hits but a ridiculous dancing-with-dummies sequence which died completely on its arse and was single-handedly responsible for him losing it. Skinner rightly says that we hear a lot about how people have enjoyed great success by taking a risk, but we don’t hear enough people who take a risk and fall flat on their face, so he was so delighted for Colin. We’re not sure if David Spiegelhalter is going to mention him on the documentary about the value of risk, but we hope so.
