Joel Golby previews this week’s TV
Dec. Dec. Roll it around your mouth a little, try to
say it without the tart-sour taste on your tongue:
Dec. Just: Dec. “Dec.” Ladies and gentlemen
… Dec! Something is wrong. You can feel it,
deep in your soul. You can feel the spiritual
rift. Something is misaligned in the universe
and everything now feels cosmically altered.
Tonight, while Ant recuperates away from the
limelight following his drink-drive arrest, it’s on
Dec to host Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway
(Saturday, 7pm, ITV) entirely Ant-less. There is
something sinister about this, and I hate it.
We have to admit now that Ant and Dec are the
bedrock on which British culture is made, and pay
them dues accordingly. For blockbuster Saturday
night TV everyhosts who leaped fully formed
from a harrowing drama scene in which one of
them had their eyes shot out, they have between
them an astonishingly delicate touch: funny,
original, soft with the civilian guests and perfectly
hard with the VIPs. They can do everything from
T-shirt-and-jacket-clad-giggling presenting (I’m
a Celeb, Britain’s Got Talent) to black-tux-and-aclean-link pedigree stuff (the Brits, The X Factor).
They are the best at what they do, but they are
very crucially just that: a “they”, a collective.
Dec without Ant is the sun without the moon, and
this Saturday we will have to stare unblinkingly
into it, waiting for our irises to turn white.
Arguably, this show-must-go-on decision is
the correct one. As Ant’s private battles are made
public, it feels like a complete absence of Ant and

The Guardian 31 March-6 April 2018
‘Will Dec unravel
into some
performance
of phantom
limb syndrome?’
Dec would be conspicuous somehow; that half
an Ant and Dec is better than no Ant and Dec at
all. And the reality of the situation is this: Dec,
an absolutely consummate professional, will
perform flawlessly on his own, to the point that –
after about 20 minutes and some scripted banter
with Scarlett Moffatt – you will hardly notice Ant
is gone. Not so much that you can ever envision a
full life without Ant, but enough to keep moving
along with. Still, Dec without Ant is a 99 cone
without any sauce or sprinkles: you can choke
it down, sure, and you can even enjoy it, but it’s
not right. It hasn’t got the necessary final smooth
layer of gloss, the pizazz, the Flake.
What we are secretly hoping for, of course –
we, the ghoulish viewers – is that Dec will slowly
unravel into some performance of phantom limb
syndrome, incrementally more lost and insane
with every minute under the studio lights alone.
That is why I will be watching, anyway. I want to
see Dec cheerfully turn his head 90 degrees to the
empty void Ant normally occupies, making small
geordie nudging noises to try to push his vacant
co-host into a chuckle. I want to see him stumble,
to miss his mark on the stage, suddenly thrown
by a single “X” mapped out for him in tape. What
I want, truly, is Dec to fold up a comedy leaning
elbow and push it out on to the air to the right of
him, and collapse into the space Ant occupied.
If Saturday Night Takeaway doesn’t end with
Dec, delirious and crying, begging for someone,
anyone, to stand next to him – “Even Stephen
Mulhern! I’d even endure Mulhern at this point!”
– then, for me, the show will have been a failure.
Good luck, though, Dec. May your temporary
Ant-less life flow smoothly.

Following the success of
the female characters in
Black Panther and A Wrinkle
in Time, the trope of ‘black
girl magic’ has gained
box-office clout. But will it
become a marketing tool,

Hymn to hair:
A Wrinkle
in Time
Hollywood is having a black girl moment.
That’s right, coloniser! Melanin has been
dripping off the big screen for little over
a year, creating new stars, new social
media challenges – and women have very
much been at the centre of it all, both in
front and behind the camera.
Hidden Figures, which came out in the US
in December 2016, told the true story of
the three African-American mathematicians who played a pivotal role in getting
US spacecraft into orbit. It made more
than $200m globally. Then in the summer
of 2017 came the brilliantly bawdy comedy Girls Trip. Grossing more than $140m,
the film introduced global audiences to
the actor Tiffany Haddish, and provided
an invaluable education in the many uses
of a grapefruit.
We had to wait until February of this
year to learn that the smartest person
in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is not
Tony Stark (Iron Man) or Bruce Banner
(the Hulk), but a 16-year-old Wakandan
girl named Shuri, the sister of T’Challa,
the Black Panther. Shuri, played superbly
by Letitia Wright, along with her female
co-stars present an image of black women
rarely seen on the big screen: they are
strong but not masculine; gloriously
adorned but not exoticised; honouring
their traditions and cultures but not
dictated to by them.
“The fact that this particular image has
natural hair and dark skin and women
in positions of power, it’s ... really just
going to change the way children see
themselves,” Lupita Nyong’o (who plays
Nakia) told gal-dem magazine.
Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time
builds on this positive portrayal. The
Disney fantasy film tells the story
of teenager Meg Murry who travels
The Guardian 31 March-6 April 2018
The Guide

Sounds of blackness:
Girls Trip; (right)
Oprah Winfrey …
across dimensions to save her
scientist father. While trying to put
the world to rights, Meg is at first
deeply insecure about her features,
particularly her curly hair. But as
the story progresses, she comes into
her own, loving and caring for her
locks. It is a message that resonates
strongly with black women. It’s
a message of black girl magic.
“I wonder what this film would
have done for me if I was
nine or 10 years old,” says
Paula Akpan, social media
editor at gal-dem. “Seeing
this black girl dealing with
all the awkward feelings
… like most young people,
but it’s made worse by
the anti-blackness you
experience all the time.
Watching [Meg] washing her hair and
caring for it … I teared-up a good bit.”
Coined in 2013 by CaShawn
Thompson, the term “black girl
magic” celebrates the achievements
of black women in spite of the
adversity they face. “‘Black girl
magic’ is a wonderful catchphrase
because it subverts in just a few
words all the classist, racist, sexist
assumptions that are made about
black women and black bodies,”
says Mia Mask, professor of film
at Vassar College, New York. The
term has also proved to be lucrative.
Black Panther has now passed the
$1bn mark at the global box office
and its success has completely
skewed expectations (earlier in the
month, headlines read: “A Wrinkle
in Time stumbles with $33m” in its
first weekend).
So is black girl magic coming of
age in film or does the concept serve
as an easy way for executives to
market to audiences they know have
been starved of representation?
Also, does it always serve black
women to be seen as magical?
Emerging UK film-maker Jenn
Nkiru is cautiously optimistic: “We
are experiencing a moment. But a
couple of films that have done very
well is by no means a signifier that
things have changed.”
Gaylene Gould, head of
programme and acquisitions at
the British Film Institute (BFI),
mentions the pioneering films and
‘This is a branding of black
feminism. It’s not enough to
have meaning, you’ve got to
present your idea in a tweet’

The Guide
film-maker collectives of the 1960s
(such as the LA Rebellion and the
Third Cinema) that “told all kinds of
universal, powerful stories”. Black
women took centre stage again in
the 1990s with movies such as Set
It Off, How Stella Got Her Groove
Back and Waiting to Exhale, all
precursors to Girls Trip. But the
proportion of black female filmmakers, producers, distributors or
even actors barely changed in that
20-year period.
“As a black woman, there is a
pressure to come out of the gate
perfect. If you don’t then you don’t
get to make more films,” explains
the Peckham-raised Nkiru, whose
Rebirth Is Necessary won the
Canal+ prize at this year’s ClermontFerrand short film festival. “I know
a lot of white male counterparts
whose work doesn’t do well and
you’ll hear: ‘He’s still understanding
it until
himself as an artist. Let’s wait
his third film.’”
Having little tolerance for
the failure of black women is a
ustry
critique of both the film industry
and of black girl magic itself. It
is a concern that film studios,,
aware that diverse audiencess
will pay good money to see
themselves represented in
their strength, will still not
y
support projects that portray
diverse characters in their
complexity. “I like black girl
magic but I do think that
… Hidden Figures;
and (below)

[labels] can create a lot of pressure.
It can have a huge impact on your
mental health, leaving you with
imposter syndrome. It’s OK to not be
outstanding all the time; you’ll wear
yourself out,” says gal-dem’s Akpan.
While the expression “black girl
magic” might be relatively new, it
is rooted in a much older history.
“I think about black girl magic
in the context of black women
poets who came before and laid
the groundwork,” says Mask.
“Particularly Maya Angelou – and
the poem Still I Rise – stands out
as the progenitor for all this.”
Mask also names June Jordan,
Sonia Sanchez and Nikki Giovanni,
all American women of colour who
“created a politicised movement out
of poetry and left a wonderful legacy
for the younger generation”. But it
is former first lady Michelle Obama
whom Mask credits for taking
The Guardian 31 March-6 April 2018
black girl magic global. “The sheer
mass distribution of images of the
Obamas engaged in socio-political
activity was a game changer.”
According to Mask, Obama was able
to take vocabulary from the black
community into the mainstream,
as she did at the Black Girls Rock
awards in 2015, but she wasn’t alone
in doing so.
“If there was ever a fairy
godmother sprinkling black girl
magic around that would be Oprah,”
says the BFI’s Gould. Having spent
30 years working in culture, Gould
argues that the “lens is finally
widening” in an industry “rooted in
the power of white men”. “The fact
that Oprah has linked up with Ava
DuVernay [in A Wrinkle in Time]
is wonderful,” Gould says. “Never
in my lifetime did I think we’d see
that.” The 2003 version of the film
featured a mainly white cast.
Somewhat straying from its radical
roots, Mask acknowledges that black
girl magic – as with everything else
in our consumerist society – is now a
brand. “This is not to be cynical,” she
says, “but this is branding of black
feminism. It’s not enough to have
meaning, you’ve got to present your
idea in tweetable form.” She says
it’s important to be “honest about
how black culture works within a
capitalist marketplace. Ideas must be
presented in a way that’s appealing.”
She offers the #OscarsSoWhite
hashtag as an example: “There
have been 20 years of conversations
about the Academy Awards being
exclusionary. Then April Reign
developed #OscarsSoWhite and all
of a sudden everyone is talking about
the lack of diversity.”
On TV, there is a similar story:
with the success of TV shows
such as Insecure, Queen Sugar or
Chewing Gum, one would assume
that representations of blackness on
TV are better than ever before. But
Gould and Nkiru argue that we have
actually gone backwards. “Change
is like the figure 8,” says Gould. “We
have high points and then periods
of darkness, but every time there’s
a high, things are pushed further
[than the last time].”
For all the opportunities that
black girl magic creates in film
and on TV, ultimately Nkiru warns
against creating another limiting
trope: “What I want to see is black
women represented as human
beings: we win, fail, do right, do
wrong. We’re not monolithic.”

Ask Toni Braxton for a memory that
encapsulates her 90s imperial phase and
she’ll ignore that decade’s five Grammys,
25m albums sold (10m for 1993’s self-titled
debut, 15m for 1996’s Secrets) and the
11-week US No 1 reign of windswept megaballad Un-Break My Heart. She’ll neglect
to mention the friendships with Prince
and Whitney Houston, or the fact that her
influence means she recently performed
at Rihanna’s 30th birthday party (slow jam
Breathe Again is a RiRi favourite). No, the story
that sticks in her head is a little less glitzy. One
night, she tells me over the phone from New York,
she was followed to a restaurant toilet by a group
of female fans who, while she was having a quick
sit down, tapped on the cubicle wall. “Excuse me,
are you Toni Braxton?” they asked. “Can we get
your autograph?” “I was like: ‘Can you give me
a second?!’” Braxton laughs, her low, husky voice
lending the story unwarranted gravitas.
In the grand scheme of Toni Braxton’s life,
however, an interrupted number one is fairly
small fry. In 1998, despite being one of the world’s
biggest-selling artists, she filed for bankruptcy. In
2010, shortly before confirming she was suffering

from the autoimmune disease lupus, she filed
for bankruptcy again, the result of cancelling a
2008 Las Vegas residency due to microvascular
angina. In addition, there has been a divorce,
feuds with managers, acrimonious label changes
and, in 2013, a short-lived retirement. If you’re
thinking: “Wow, this would make a great memoir
or Lifetime movie,” you’re in luck: the book came
out in 2014, while the straight-to-TV film followed
in 2016. It makes this month’s new album, Sex &
Cigarettes, even more of an unexpected triumph.
“People say Toni Braxton is over, but I’m not
over,” she says. “The bitch is back. Again.”
Toni Braxton should never have been a star.
Raised by religious parents in Maryland (her
father was a Methodist clergyman, her mother
a pastor), her upbringing was strict. “My life was
very covered,” she says. “I couldn’t wear pants
[she means trousers] until I was 14. We were
very ‘Old Testament’, where a woman couldn’t
wear anything pertaining to a man and pants
were considered masculine.” While non-secular
music was strictly forbidden at home, Braxton
would sing in high-school bands, but never the
lead, often accompanying on the keyboard.
She lost count of the times people told her
she would make an excellent backing singer.

“My voice was really low and deep and that
wasn’t really in style then,” she says.
In the late 1980s, as her parents’ grip loosened,
Braxton and her four younger sisters (Traci,
Towanda, Trina and Tamar) started performing
as the Braxtons. While their 1990 debut single
Good Life flopped, it ended up catching the
attention of producers Antonio “LA” Reid and
Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, who liked some
of what they heard; the pair would sign Toni
to their LaFace label as a solo artist. The news
didn’t go down well at home. “[My mum] felt
like the devil was raging and separating our
family,” she says. What should have been a cause
for celebration – Braxton cut two songs for the
hugely successful soundtrack to the 1992 Eddie
Murphy vehicle Boomerang – was tainted. “It was
perpetual guilt,” she says. “Looking back, there
were situations where I go: ‘You should have
lived louder.’”
The success of the soundtrack led to LaFace
fast-tracking sessions for what would become
Braxton’s debut album. Used to having what
she wore and sang dictated to her, Braxton went
along with the plan to make her seem much older
than her 25 years. “I was so green,” she says.
“Just happy to be there. I always felt this need to

2016 and 2000
do my best immediately.
The first album was done
on purpose, you know,
making me a little more
adult contemporary. By
the time the second album
came around I wanted to
be my age. I didn’t want
to wear all these long gowns; I wanted to wear
jeans or a catsuit.”
The campaign mirrored Whitney Houston’s
early years under the watchful eye of label
head Clive Davis, with the main aim being
not to alienate the lucrative white, adult
contemporary audience. Davis once referred to
Braxton as “too black to be white and too white
to be black”. Did she agree? “Yes, absolutely. In
regards to my music. I’m an African-American
artist, the tone of my voice lends itself to being
a soul singer, but my music is pop as well as R&B.
So you have to straddle that divide carefully.
Like Whitney had to.”
Did Whitney ever give her any advice? “She
gave me great advice on dating,” says Braxton,
somewhat surprisingly. “She was the leader of
the pack for me.” For a while, Braxton’s sales
reached Whitney heights. The 1996 album
The Guide

‘Prince was always there,
even during my second
bankruptcy. I feel like
he’s still watching me’
Secrets gave her two massive hits
in the shape of the honeyed sex
jam You’re Makin’ Me High and
the medically ambitious Un-Break
My Heart. The former was inspired
by Braxton’s brief dalliance with
drugs. “I tried marijuana once and got really
paranoid.” In fact, it made her think she could
understand Chinese. “That part of it was quite
exciting,” she reasons.
Less than two years after Secrets, however,
Braxton found herself filing for bankruptcy.
Despite being unable to go into details about the
case, it was decided Braxton should go on Oprah
Winfrey’s chatshow. The interview was a car
crash, with Oprah reprimanding what she saw
as Braxton’s lavish lifestyle. The truth is a little
more complicated. Braxton wound up with huge
debts after being forced to self-fund her tour
with corkscrew-permed saxophonist Kenny G
and assumed the royalty cheques she was owed
would clear the debt. The cheque she’d been
waiting for amounted to just $2,000 after label
deductions, while her debts totalled nearly $4m.
In late 1997 she sued LaFace and Arista, before
filing for bankruptcy in January 1998.
In a 2012 interview, Braxton accused Oprah
of being “so frickin’ mean to me, I was in
shock”, but today she’s a little more sanguine:
“I remember I didn’t want to do it, and I was
advised we should. I thought it magnified it. It
was a bad call; it made it an enormous situation.”
One person offering better advice, however,
was Prince. “He was always there, even during
my second bankruptcy … ” She pauses, before
suddenly roaring, “which sounds so crazy to
say! ‘My second bankruptcy!’” She regains her
composure. “I feel like he’s still watching me.
There have been times where I’ve been thinking
about him and his song will come on the radio.”
Tony! Toni! Toné!
More musical Tonys …
Just as her financial situation was stabilising
(she reached an agreement with Arista and
LaFace in early 1999, signing a $20m record deal),
Braxton found out she was pregnant. Being
three months into a prescription for Accutane
– an acne treatment that can have serious sideeffects for unborn babies – she decided to have
a termination. “I hate to even think about that
decision I made,” she says. “I believe in prochoice. It was just a moment in my life that, with
all the success I was blessed with, I guess that
came with it.” She would later have two sons:
Denim and Diezel.
While she had further success with 2000’s
classic kiss-off He Wasn’t Man Enough, she
says there was a “heaviness” to the albums that
followed. In 2013, she announced her retirement,
leading to messages of support from the likes of
Missy Elliott and Barbra Streisand. Babyface –
with whom she hadn’t worked for more than a
decade – showed up at her house suggesting they
collaborate. The resulting joint album, 2014’s
Love, Marriage & Divorce, earned her another
Grammy and a fresh start. As our interview winds
down, we touch on TV (she loves The Crown),
swear words (her favourite is “wanker”) and
Rihanna. “I love how much she enjoys her career.
She won’t be suppressed or censored. To be that
brave … ” A sigh. “But for my generation we
weren’t allowed to do that. The men were allowed
to express themselves but the women weren’t.”
She is keen to make sure this next career chapter is
both loud and long. “My goal is to be a centennial,”
she giggles. “By the time I get my letter from the
president – who will probably be Justin Bieber by
then – I would like to be proud of myself.”

Is it art or satire? Ostlund’s

art; an ape impersonator who gets
too method; an awkward tryst with
a journo (Elisabeth Moss). It all adds
up to a provocative interrogation of
culture and privilege.

The take
Where does the
mean-scheming
teen nihilism of
Thoroughbreds
belong in a postParkland world?
C FOLGER/FOCUS FEATURES/KOBAL/REX/SHUTTERSTOCK
T
“This is Amanda: she feels nothing. This is
Lily: she feels everything.” This is teenhood
in a nutshell. And this is from the trailer of
Thoroughbreds, a delightfully nasty new
movie in which two privileged Connecticut
schoolgirls hatch a plot to kill Lily’s stepdad.
They are perfect partners in crime, although
the crime, inevitably, does not go perfectly.
They are also perfect symbols of teenhood and,
by extension, teen movies: on the one hand,
studied, borderline sociopathic numbness; on
the other, an acute sensitivity that makes every
experience, like, the most intense thing EVER.
Most teen movies veer towards the latter,
but Thoroughbreds’ Amanda and Lily extend
a fine, parallel tradition of mean, scheming,
murderous movie teens. Their club could include
Kate Winslet and Melanie Lynskey in Heavenly
Creatures; Denise Richards and Neve Campbell
in Wild Things, which took teen scheming to
twisted extremes; or Sarah Michelle Gellar and
Ryan Phillippe in Cruel Intentions. Flipping back
through the yearbook, we arrive at Heathers,
which is now marking its 30th anniversary. It
charted a high-school landscape of savage social
hierarchies, ruled by a clique of well-heeled
in-girls, brought down by Winona Ryder and
the nihilistic Christian Slater. The school was
a breeding ground for factionalism, elitism,
conformity and cut-throat competition; perfect
training for the 1980s America outside.
It is odd to look back at Heathers now, with its
flip treatment of suicide, murder, rape, eating
disorders and plotting to blow up the school, plus
such beautifully honed lines as: “Dear diary, my
teen angst bullshit has a body count.” Those were
the days, when you could play fast and loose with
such dark themes because they were so removed
from reality. Now, US students have active
shooter drills, metal detectors at the school gate
and a president who is encouraging teachers to
fire back. It looks like a victory for Team Nihilism.
Except that in response to all this, post-Parkland,
we are currently witnessing the biggest display of
teen activism in living memory.
The #NeverAgain movement’s inspirational
leaders are the type of people you rarely see in
teen movies. They don’t fit the Breakfast Club
archetypes (jock, nerd, princess, rebel, recluse).
They are more like the kids that the Heathers girls
snark at in the cafeteria for campaigning against
famine in Africa; except now they are the coolest
kids on campus. They’re feted by celebrities and
featured on the covers of Time and Teen Vogue. So
where does that leave mean-schemer-teen movies
such as Thoroughbreds? In many ways, the
#NeverAgain kids are rejecting the film’s school of
nihilism: it’s the shooters who feel nothing; they
choose to feel everything. Steve Rose

The take
Why Juliana
Hatfield’s Hey Babe
and its so-called
‘minor feelings’
roared just as loudly
as its riot grrrl peers
PAT GREENHOUSE/BOSTON GLOBE VIA GETTY
N
Nineteen-ninety-two was the inaugural year
of the “women in rock” era: a stretch of several
years when artists from Courtney Love and
PJ Harvey to Meredith Brooks unwittingly
formed a cohort of so-called girls with guitars
and the phrase “girl power” seeped into
the popular lexicon from the underground
precincts of the riot grrrl scene.
Juliana Hatfield was at the heart of this
zeitgeist. In 1992, Hatfield had just broken up
her college band Blake Babies and released her
solo debut Hey Babe on Mammoth Records.
Hey Babe was among the most successful
independent releases of the year; 25 years on, it
remains a largely forgotten minor masterpiece.
But the release of a newly remastered Hey Babe
on the American Laundromat label this month
will reintroduce listeners to a coming-of-age
album for the solitary female misfit. At the time
of Hey Babe’s release, the riot grrrl movement
was normalising the expression of female rage,
offering a crucial framework of empowerment
for female listeners. But Hey Babe offers a
landscape of emotion – self-disgust, secondguessing, depression, cautious optimism – that
has no place in a reception model so narrowly
hinged on “empowerment”. The album dwells
on muddled feelings, elevating confusion and
insecurity over anger. Its 11 songs build entire
worlds out of the state of feeling small, delivered
in a voice that skids from girlish wail to shattered
mumble. The album’s centrepiece is the song
Ugly, an acoustic instruction manual on living
with low self-esteem. “I’m pretty lost but I don’t
want to be found/ My tiny screams don’t make a
sound,” sings Hatfield.
Hey Babe’s tone of disquiet has made it all
too easy to overlook Hatfield’s foundational
role in the “women in rock” genealogy. This
reflects our cultural preference for so-called
“vehement passions” over “minor feelings”.
Cultural critic Sianne Ngai notes of the western
literary tradition: “Something about the cultural
canon itself seems to prefer higher passions and
emotions, as if minor or ugly feelings are not
only incapable of producing ‘major’ works, but
somehow disabled the works they do drive from
acquiring canonical distinction.”
This explains a lot about the record’s unfairly
diminished role in the alternative rock narrative.
Hatfield herself stopped playing its songs
shortly after it was released. “Immediately after
recording the album, I was really embarrassed by
it,” she explained to Billboard, “but now I’m really
proud of myself.” Hey Babe will strike a chord
with a new generation of listeners who are shy,
ambivalent, inward and emotionally complex.
The 25th-anniversary vinyl reissue of Hey Babe
is out now

– becomes a hopelessly complicated,

Kiss Me First
Save Me
Wednesday, 9pm, Sky Atlantic
In a year of TV dramas characterised by
boilerplate earnestness, Save Me has been a
breath of fresh air. Lennie James’s creation
has carried real emotional weight thanks to
its flaky but likable hero, Nelly. In this finale,
Nelly looks for answers in the pub – surely
yet another reason to like the man. A second
season is in the works so don’t expect closure.
Monday, 10pm,
Channel 4
It is created by Bryan
Elsley of Skins fame,
and Kiss Me First
has a comparable,
attention-grabbing
vigour. A shy teenage
gamer bonds online
with an extrovert party
girl. But what are the
consequences of their
online friendship
spilling into real life?

Limmy’s
Homemade Show
From Friday,
BBC iPlayer
The funniest man in
Scotland returns with
a brilliantly lo-fi and
inventive new series
along the lines of his
numerous Vines; just
Limmy, a camera and
his various neuroses.
It screens on BBC2
Scotland on Thursday
and will hit the iPlayer
shortly afterwards.
The City & the City

Silicon Valley
Thursday, 10.10pm,
Sky Atlantic
With the doings of
the real-life Silicon
Valley under scrutiny
at the moment, this
feels like a good time
for a new series of
Mike Judge’s comedydrama. Watching
the five jokers at the
heart of this show, it is
easy to imagine how
oversight might be
disregarded, although
it would probably be
more cock-up than
conspiracy. As we
return, PiperNet is
approaching its launch.
Expect hitches.

David Morrissey stars as a police chief in this
adaptation of China Miéville’s speculative
novel about crime and punishment in a
divided city. With themes including the
consequences of othering and the ability of
humans to ignore obvious but uncomfortable
truths, it feels like a story with a host of
modern resonances.
Sketchtopia
Wednesday, 6.30pm,
Radio 4
This sketch comedy
fronted by Hardeep
Singh Kohli aims
to give a platform
to up-and-coming
BAME writers. It’s hit
and miss – as sketch
comedies tend to
be – but the better
moments suggest
it has the potential
to unearth plenty
of new talent.

Deep State
Thursday, 9pm, Fox
Another bleak,
conspiratorial drama
begins, this time
starring the excellent
Mark Strong as a
mildly traumatised
MI6 operative, bullied
back into the fold for
one last job and packed
off to Beirut. As is the
way with such things,
it seems likely that
what he discovers
there will make him
question everything he
g he knew.

Revolution
Sunday, 6.30pm, Sky1
Locating the midpoint between shinyfloor showbiz and the
reckless derring-do of
prime Jackass (whose

this new show brings
extreme sports into
primetime. Inline

Thérèse
Desqueyroux
Saturday, 1.15am,
BBC Two
There’s a touch of
Madame Bovary
about this adaptation
of François Mauriac’s
novel. Audrey Tautou
is Thérèse, locked
into a marriage of
convenience with
wealthy dullard
Bernaud in rural
Bordeaux; her sisterin-law’s passionate
affair adds to her
ennui. Claude
Miller’s last film is
a restrained drama
of stifled, twisted
emotions.
Cunk on Britain
Tuesday, 10pm, BBC Two
A new series, offering a new parade of experts

Cunk’s latest deconstruction of documentarymaking tropes comes via her most ambitious

Hamlet 9pm, BBC Two
A CCTV-heavy set underlines the themes of
paranoia and surveillance, and melancholy
Bob Dylan numbers punctuate the drama
in director Robert Icke’s 2017 contemporary
staging of Shakespeare’s tragedy, recorded
live at London’s Harold Pinter Theatre. As the
Dane, Andrew Scott’s agitated, wriggling fingers
communicate everything from merriment to grief
and (possibly) feigned insanity, while thanks to
some modern phrasing he makes those familiar
soliloquies sound altogether fresh and new. AJC

Pick of the Day
Ordeal By Innocence 9pm, BBC One
You can’t go wrong with an Agatha Christie on
Easter Sunday, can you? Unless of course you’re Ed
Westwick, who was expunged from this three-part
series (originally slated for Christmas) in the wake
of sexual assault allegations. His replacement,
Christian Cooke, does a fine job as the adopted son
of Rachel Argyll, a wealthy philanthropist who has
been murdered at the family estate. However, it’s
Bill Nighy as the keen-to-remarry widower and
Luke Treadaway as the alibi-providing Dr Arthur
Calgary who draw most attention. EEJ

Selma 11pm, BBC Two
David Oyelowo is an
inspiring presence in
this account of Martin
Luther King and the
civil rights struggle. It
mainly concerns the
protest marches from
Selma to Montgomery
in 1965 and the brutal
response of the
authorities; that it
also encompasses the
personal toll of the
conflict is mainly down
to Oyelowo’s poised
performance. PJH

The Reunion 11.15am, Radio 4
The battle for Basra in 2003 was one of many
parables of the giddying trajectory of the
war for Iraq: within a timeframe of just a few
weeks, the British troops were welcomed as
liberators and then resented as occupiers.
Sue MacGregor reunites five key figures in
the British intervention: generals Robin
Brims, James Dutton and Graham Binns,
reporter Caroline Wyatt and Rory Stewart,
now a Conservative MP, who back then found
himself a deputy governor. AM

Aidan Gillen stars

the Irish comedian. It
skims swiftly over his
celebrity years, though
it is interspersed with
recreations of some
of his sketches and
monologues. Instead,
it explores the roots of
his religious scepticism
(sadistic nuns) and his
relationships with his
father and brother. DS

The Unbelievable Truth 6.30pm, Radio 4
As viewers of Would I Lie to You? will know,
David Mitchell is very much at ease around finely
wrought fibs. This enduring panel show actually
predates WILTY? and sees Mitchell in the Rob
Brydon role, precluding any dangerous crossover
with his TV gig and filling the host’s chair with his
customary waspish wit. The format involves the
sneaking of occasional truths into a patchwork of
lies; for the opening episode of this new series,
guests include John Finnemore, Henning Wehn,
Lou Sanders and Graeme Garden. PH

Cunk on Britain 10pm, BBC Two
Diane Morgan’s deadpan ignoramus tackles the big
questions in this series, starting with the big bang
and stumbling blindly forward. Along the way, she
takes a hatchet to the striding-and-talking tropes of
the BBC factual department and baits experts with
bewildering displays of idiocy (“Why did stone
age people bury all their stuff underground?” she
asks one baffled archaeologist). A corrective to selfimportant historical docs or a decent but limited
joke stretched well beyond breaking point? Cunk
on Britain is probably a bit of both. PH

The Documentary: The Abortion Car
Journey 10pm, BBC World Service
Texas is strong on its own set of values – among
them a commitment to pro-life causes. Since
2011, the Planned Parenthood non-profit no
longer receives Texan tax dollars, and so it has
become increasingly difficult for Texans to access
suitable services. What this has come to mean is
long drives to clinics for individuals ill-equipped
to make them. Enter the Clinical Access Support
Network, a network of volunteer drivers. This
doc eavesdrops on in-car conversations. JR

First Dates returns for a 10th series and lands itself
a bit of a first. Stuart and Mandy used to be married
– for 11 years, in fact – but after getting divorced
“for 30 quid on the internet”, they’re now looking
for love again. On adjacent restaurant tables. Their
respective dates, Adam and Claire, are suitably
freaked out. Elsewhere, J and Sophie have both
been unlucky in love, and despite him almost
mugging himself with cheeseball chat-up lines,
she seems keen; while Morganne and valleys boy
Nathan bond following a Jägerbomb faux pas. BA

a holiday to England “to experience poverty”,
a “Jewish Mother Hotline” (it’s “generally
disappointed in you”) plus riffs on citizenship

given current concerns about data privacy, should
have much intrigue to harvest in forthcoming

but his initial choice of office proves disastrous.
He’s also engaged in a war for coders with Gavin
Belson, whose Buddhist interlude is over (“The

In a world gone
crazier than fiction,
it’s debatable how
many more shadowy,
ambiguous espionage
dramas we really need.
But this thriller, in
which Mark Strong’s
retired MI6 agent Max
Easton reluctantly
finds himself back
in Beirut for one last
job, shows signs of
being a superior, if
generic example of
the form. PH
13 Assassins
1.20am, Film4
Takashi Miike’s
masterly samurai
movie is set in 1840s
Japan, where a band
of warriors assembled
by the charismatic
Koji Yakusho are
dispatched to kill
a sadistic lord who
is protected by 200
soldiers. The climactic,
near hour-long
running battle is a
deliriously bloody
chunk of action. PJH

The City & the City 9pm, BBC Two
In this eerie adaptation of China Miéville’s sci-fi
novel, the cities of Besźel and Ul Qoma occupy
the same geographical space. The citizens of each
learn to “unsee” the other; if they don’t, the secret
police of Breach might come calling. Thus, when
Inspector Borlú (David Morrissey) of Besźel’s
Extreme Crime Squad investigates a murder
with links to both locales, trouble lies ahead.
A thriller with much to say about quintessentially
21st-century themes such as othering, this may well
divide audiences – which seems appropriate. JW

Willie Evans Jr slip from freestyle rapping to
storytelling to interviewing. Errthang is slang

lot of heart. Season two’s opening episode, 808s
and Three Heartbreaks, contains a beautifully
told tale about being dumped at the prom after
a disastrous first kiss while being attacked by fire

When good TV goes bad: MTV Unplugged
From Toys R Us to the state of Gary Lineker’s
upper lip and chin, many things fared better in
the 90s. This includes the acoustic performance
show MTV Unplugged, which, for a while,
showcased stripped-back and often surprising
performances from a range of worthy musicians.
It was where Nirvana offered up obscure
cover versions and the adorable sight of Dave
Grohl trying his damnedest to drum quietly.
Pearl Jam made a feminist statement when their
singer scrawled “pro-choice” on his arm in magic
marker. Alice in Chains had their own Woody
Guthrie moment via a bass guitar emblazoned
with a slogan denouncing Metallica’s short hair.
The show allowed older statesmen such as
Neil Young to reach a younger audience, too,
but let’s not be rockist because it wasn’t only
white guitar dudes who shone: Mariah Carey
stormed it thanks to her invincible vocal range;
Jay-Z’s appearance marked the latest chapter in
hip-hop’s infiltration of the mainstream.
Unfortunately, MTV’s curatorial nous went
awry. Unplugged had once semaphored an act
rising to significance. Then horn-voiced Katy
Perry arrived after one album to perform loungejazz versions of her clumsily problematic songs
I Kissed A Girl and Ur So Gay.
Poorer still were the next generation of angstridden white boys. Taking the riffs and roars
of metal, adding the scratches and raps of hiphop, and upping the misogyny quota of both, a
scene was born wherein shorts were acceptable
Cured ham:

The Guide
‘Nu-metal was
less suited to
Unplugged than
Michael Bay is
to direct Phantom
Thread II’
stagewear. Nu-metal was a genre less suited to
acoustic reinterpretation than Michael Bay is
to direct Phantom Thread II. Unplugged even
neglected to book the superior nu-metal bands
such as Deftones and Kittie. Instead, they chose
Incubus, Staind and, ropiest of all, Korn.
With Jonathan Davis’s whiny, whispered
singing and his band’s lack of refinement
starkly exposed, Korn: MTV Unplugged almost
transgresses the boundaries of unintentional
hilarity to become a masterpiece of a misstep.
At one point, Robert Smith mooches onstage
resembling The Last Days of Elizabeth Taylor for
a medley in which the Cure’s In Between Days
segues into nu-metal turkey Make Me Bad.
More fascinating is the interview snippet
where Smith extols Korn’s virtues. Is he being
ironic? Trying to conceal his embarrassment?
Why is he involved in this debacle? Has he been
taken hostage? In 200 years’ time, when the
mystifying Mona Lisa has perished beyond
restoration and the public can no longer
countenance tediously two-dimensional
portraits, La Gioconda’s place in the Louvre will
be taken up by a holographic ad infinitum loop of
Smith repeating the words “I … I’m actually a big
fan of Korn … they’re a phenomenal live band”.
With Unplugged’s credibility now in tatters,
anyone could appear on it. So fewer people
did. One of just three Unplugged performances
in 2015 came from Placebo, who had peaked
in 1998 with a song that rhymed “weed” with
“need” and “dawning” with “morning”. For
MTV Unplugged, we were mourning.

Dir: Jian Liu (15)
Somewhere between Pulp Fiction, Takeshi
Kitano and Daniel Clowes, this lo-fi crime
caper almost feels like an authentic snapshot
of modern-day China, despite the fact it’s
animated. Centred on a stolen bag of cash,
the entertainingly tangled plot takes in
gangsters, chancers, cosmetic surgery and
even some corrupt Buddhist monks.
