PICK OF THE DAY
7.40pm TERRY AND JUNE, BBC1
Don’t place your bets on whether it was Terry or June’s sunlounger (or the parasol) that collapsed, for we are still firmly in the manhunt-outside-East-Croydon-s
7.40pm DID YOU SEE…?, BBC2
It feels all wrong seeing those three dots and that question mark on a Wednesday, but Ludovic Kennedy’s TV talk-in roamed all over the BBC2 schedules before eventually settling on Sunday nights. The programmes being discussed tonight by architect Piers Gough, dance critic Jan Murray and the mighty Terry Jones are Chronicle, ballet documentary Right Royal Company and The Kenny Everett Video Cassette (“Well I thought the best bit was when Kenny covered Terry Wogan in a load of green slime.”)
5.15pm MR AND MRS, ITV
Long-time nemesis of TV Cream, Derek Batey pulls on his test-card jacket and grey slip-ons for another session of multiple-choice matrimonial combat, with hostess Susan “Cuff’s Stuff” Cuff herding the provincial couples inside the “soundproof booth”, complete with the biggest pair of headphones outside a modern-day Premier League dressing room, as they jousted for a carriage clock and the tempting bounty emblazoned on the Election ‘74-style jackpot board. Remember, be nice to each other.
