Horizon: Eat, Fast and Live Longer, BBC2

“Scientifically, this proved what I have long suspected – that an attendant television crew is one of the most powerful aides to willpower in existence.”
Tom Sutcliffe, The Independent

“Has there ever been a more important comma than the one in this title?”
Sam Wollaston, The Guardian

The Hit Factory: The Stock, Aitken and Waterman Story, ITV1

“The mere mention of Sonia, or Rick Astley, or The Reynolds Girls was enough to produce a physical shudder in this reviewer… But as this light but watchable little film reminded us, there was still a lot of talent behind the hairspray.”
Matt Baylis, Daily Express

Jimmy’s Forest, More 4

“The badger ham wasn’t a success, but the programme itself is just what your inner child ordered.”
Tom Sutcliffe, The Independent

Britain’s High Street Gamble, Channel 4

“Michael Crick’s excellent investigation into the blight that is betting shop Britain.”
Sam Wollaston, The Guardian

Simply Italian, Channel 4
