Guardian columnist, writes books, comes late to technology.

The Spaceman of Afghanistan; Gotham review - origins of a spaceman, and of Batman — By the grace of a God I have often wrongly condemned as unbenevolent, the BBC did not put Ten Years of The Apprentice up on their previews site in time for me to watch or write about it.

Inside Charlie's Chocolate Factory : The Complete Story of Willy Wonka, the Golden Ticket and Roald Dahl's Most Famous Creation — INSIDE CHARLIE'S CHOCOLATE FACTORY explores the unique appeal and lasting cultural impact of Roald Dahl's beloved classic. This non-fiction book looks at the development of the original story and characters, its social history, and the varying film and stage adaptations.

Did the Queen make David Cameron beg for forgiveness over his ‘purr’ gaffe? — David Cameron has apparently apologised to the Queen for - and really, I'm so sorry to have to bring this up again, but you must understand that it is the very profundity of the horror that requires us all to revisit and grant ourselves closure on it - telling the mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg, that when Cameron told her Scotland was still part of the union, she "purred" down the phone at him.

Lucy Mangan on Gossip Girl — Forget everything you ever knew about gender-appropriate appellations and rejoice in the pioneering American spirit taken out of the 19th-century prairie farming and applied to modern Upper East Side nomenclature in Gossip Girl (ITV2).

Who does the housework? Five Guardian writers reveal all — Does any couple really split the chores straight down the middle?

The most popular items in Weddings — Best Sellers: The most popular items in Weddings

The Driver; Secrets and Lies review - gripping drama that leaves you rigid with unrelieved tension — "You scored 14," Vince's doctor tells him. "You need to score 15 before I can comfortably prescribe medication." "So what are you saying?" replies Vince flintily. "I'm one point short of depression?"

Illegal Immigrants And Proud review - a mean tone permeated this film about the ‘illegals’ — Back in January, Fergal Keane made a documentary entitled The Hidden World of Britain's Immigrants for BBC2 about - well, the hidden world of Britain's immigrants.

This World: Ireland’s Lost Babies review - an appalling story, told with admirable restraint — There's no point, really, in even trying to prepare yourself mentally or emotionally for a programme entitled This World: Ireland's Lost Babies (BBC2). The bald facts, laid out by presenter Martin Sixsmith as he made his way between the emerald isle and the US, were bad enough.
