TV Pick: Week 5

News

Documentary
Renaissance Revolution, 3/3
Why: The last hour-long episode in this pretty great series on renaissance paintings focuses on Piero Della Francesca’s Baptism of Christ. Accessible, informative, and beautifully done.
Where: BBC iPlayer
Available until: Saturday 13th November

Comedy
Genius, 6/6
Why: It’s the people you catch the bus with and their weird ideas! Fairly cosy, but a lot of fun. Shappi Khorsandi and Noddy Holder are an inspired combination of guests.
Where: BBC iPlayer
Available until: Sunday 14th November

Drama
The Event, Series 1 Episode 3
Why: A new show from America, with baffling adverts that try to build suspense by not explaining what “the Event” is. The new Lost? No. At least watching will kill your curiosity.
Where: 4od
Available until: Friday 12th November
