If you didn’t know they were showing these in order you’d think the DLT episode was chosen entirely to stitch him up while the papers are sniffing around the antics celebs got up to in the seventies. Never mind that, though, we enjoyed Leo Sayer inventing that bit in Seinfeld where Jerry goes to the seaside to make an important decision (we like how they didn’t get the vagrants to move) and the lead singer from Stardust’s inability to defy gravity meaning you could hear him land back on the floor with a thud a fraction of a second before the chorus began. Noel tonight with The Steve Gibbons Band already with a new single five seconds after the last one, but it won’t be on as much as it was a massive flop.

Creamguide's Pick of the Day
A lot’s been said about Hugh Carleton Greene’s reign as Director General and he certainly did plenty of great things, though in many ways he only had himself to blame in his battles with Mary Whitehouse because he did sometimes seem to go out of his way to wind her up, and he wasn’t entirely the great liberal as he refused to let That Was The Week That Was go out in the same year as the General Election. Certainly more good than bad, though, and in the next episode of this repeated series he’s the focus alongside his commissions like The Wednesday Play.
