TV Picks


Saturday 9 April 20.40-22.00
PBS America
The Great Math Mystery
The impact of maths on our lives. We knew it was a lot…but this much? (Why do the Americans call it “Math”?)

Sunday 10 April 22.50-1.55
Film: The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
Ignore the long title. Ignore the the fact that it’s a Western. Do not ignore a very fine film and a very fine performance by Brad Pitt. Definitely one to be recorded.

Tuesday 12 April 22.00-23.00
Jerusalem: The Making of a Holy City
Just such a fascinating place – all religion is there. Simon Sebag-Montefiore unravels it all.

Radio 4
Rewinding the Menopause
Can the big M be kept at bay? Maybe…just maybe.
