- CARPOOL KARAOKE: STAND UP 2 CANCER SPECIAL (All4)
The smash hit viral segment of James Corden’s The Late Late Show in the States made a special UK broadcast last Friday as part of Channel 4’s annual telethon for Stand Up 2 Cancer. Joining him for a singalong in the Los Angeles traffic for this edition was everyone’s favourite Canadian crooner, Michael Bublé, who also recounted his own moving experiences with his son Noah’s cancer diagnosis a few years ago. A moving but enjoyable must-watch.
- PAUL O’GRADY: FOR THE LOVE OF DOGS (ITV Hub)
No stranger to our canine friends, owing to his rescued menagerie of them (Buster, Olga and Louis) on his teatime chat show back in the 00s, Paul O’Grady returns for a seventh series going behind the scenes at the Battersea Dogs Home in London, as he brings more uplifting tales of dogs looking for a new home. A Dachshund named Birdie (owing to her penchant for the golf course) is among those featured in the first episode.
- JO BRAND’S CATS & KITTENS (My5)
If however, you fancy more of the feline side of things when it comes to Britain’s best loved animals, then comedian and presenter Jo Brand’s new series on Channel 5 is just the show you need. A self confessed moggy mad lady, this sweet series goes behind the scenes at the RSPCA, working with their dedicated team of inspectors and volunteers to protect the nation’s cats from harm.
- BLACKADDER GOES FORTH (BBC iPlayer)
With next Sunday’s Remembrance Day marking the centenary of the end of WWI in 1918, it seems fitting that the Beeb are making this comedy classic with Rowan Atkinson, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie and of course, Tony Robinson, available for viewing again to mark the occasion. If you’ve never seen this, be prepared to witness some of the finest comic – and in some cases dramatic – performing and screen writing on British telly even to this day.
