Happy Valley recap: series 2, episode 1 – scars, sheep-rustlers and a serial killer 10.2.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page
The critics’ top drama of 2014 is back with a vengeance: the mother of last season’s villain, Tommy Lee Royce, has been found dead by none other than Sgt Catherine Cawood “Sheep-rustling?” Eighteen months after she rescued her grandson Ryan from the clutches of his biological father – the kidnapper, murderer and rapist Tommy Lee Royce – Sgt Catherine Cawood (Sarah Lancashire) is back on familiar ground. Sitting outside the house she shares with her meek sister Clare (Siobhan Finneran), Catherine enjoys telling her incredulous sibling the story of three lads in Halifax who, while “off their heads on acid”, stole a sheep and let it loose on a housing estate, where it was mauled by dogs. A comic anecdote – even if it’s a bloody one involving savaged livestock – seems an audacious way for writer Sally Wainwright to open season two of a show that in 2014 was critics’ and audiences’ top new drama of the year. Then it was a gripping, unflinchingly brutal thriller. What’s ...

No more Mr Nice Gay: how TV representation changed from Will & Grace to Empire 10.2.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page
Portraying gay men as witty and well-dressed makes them feel inadequate in real life, claims a new study. Really? There’s more to modern gay characters than the sexless sidekick Threats to gay men’s self-esteem come in many guises, from Grindr chats that end abruptly after sending a shirtless pic, to the 16% of Britons who think gay sex should be made illegal (thanks guys), to the five remaining countries that believe we should be put to death. Until now, I hadn’t factored in that we may all be silently agonising over whether or not we compare favourably to Will Truman from TV relic Will & Grace – but according to new research, that is precisely what has been knocking our confidence. Psychologists from Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge have found that the positive portrayal of gay men on TV “can be damaging”. Apparently, gay men may have been left depressed by movies and TV shows that promote an assumption that we all must be well-dressed, emotionally available and whip-smart. The project leader, Dr ...

The Pentagon has fired the first shot in a new arms race | Mary Dejevsky 10.2.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page
The US is ramping up military spending to counter ‘Russian aggression’ – but what does that mean for Europe? As the voters of New Hampshire braved the snow to play their part in the great pageant of American democracy on Tuesday, the US secretary of defence was setting out his spending requirements for 2017. And while the television cameras may have preferred the miniature dramas at the likes of Dixville Notch , the reorientation of US defence priorities under the outgoing president may turn out to exert the greater influence – and not in a good way, at least for the future of Europe. In a speech in Washington last week , previewing his announcement, Ash Carter said he would ask for spending on US military forces in Europe to be quadrupled in the light of “Russian aggression”. The allocation for combating Islamic State, in contrast, is to be increased by 50%. The message is unambiguous: as viewed from the Pentagon, the threat from Russia has become more alarming, suddenly, even than the menace that is ...

Unfinished business: how Disney and Marvel killed happy ever afters 10.2.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page
Princess Leia thought the rebels had won. Iron Man had hung up his suit. Bruce Wayne had swapped Gotham for Florence. But the fans and the studios wanted more. Whatever happened to going out with a bang? Star Wars: The Force Awakens may be one of the highest-grossing films ever released , but it is also one of the most depressing. However delighted our heroes are to destroy the Death Star – sorry, Starkiller Base – the overriding message is that such triumphs are meaningless; specifically, the triumph that rounded off the previous Star Wars episode, The Return of the Jedi. When we saw it in 1983, we couldn’t have envisaged a sweeter or more total victory. There were parties on every planet in the galaxy, Leia was cosying up with Han next to a bonfire, and Darth Vader had redeemed himself by chucking someone down one of those 100-storey maintenance ducts that the Empire’s health-and-safety-defying architects are so fond of. Everything was ...

Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan novels set for TV adaptation 10.2.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page

The writer’s popular books are being adapted by the producers behind Sky’s Gomorrah, with each of the four volumes becoming an eight-episode series

Usually when a television show contains a giant mystery it’s something that is revealed in the final episode of the season, but for an upcoming Italian series, the mystery might never be solved.

Tuesday’s best TV: The Secret Life of the Zoo; Happy Valley; The Real Marigold Hotel; Professor Green: Hidden and Homeless 9.2.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page
More antics at Chester zoo; return of Sally Wainwright’s gripping but hardcore Yorkshire crime thriller; last of the celebs pottering around India. Plus: new one-off doc from Professor Green

The behind-the-scenes look at Chester zoo continues, with ageing penguins Spike and Rudd slowing down, leaving staff with difficult decisions to make about their future. A pair of tigers and their cubs must move to a new enclosure, so the big-cat team help them stay calm, and two Cambodian sun bears arrive at the zoo. Meanwhile, at the insect house, a tarantula described as “a bit of a douche” prepares to risk his life with a new mate. Hannah Verdier

Rock and roll: the men who fled Alcatraz in a boat made of raincoats 9.2.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page
Three scientists have built a raft to row from Alcatraz to dry land – recreating a daredevil prison break in the 60s. And, as two new documentaries reveal, they’re not the only people delving into decades-old escapes It has been 53 years since the famed three-man escape from Alcatraz, the outrageous endeavour immortalised in Clint Eastwood’s 1979 movie Escape from Alcatraz. All we know for sure is that inmates Frank Morris and brothers Clarence and John Anglin launched a raft made of raincoats from Alcatraz Island into San Francisco Bay – and that neither their bodies nor the raft were ever recovered. But new evidence floods to the fore in two upcoming documentaries, Surviving Alcatraz: Escaping the Rock and Alcatraz: Search for the Truth . For all the fog that surrounds that night, one thing beyond dispute is the enduring public fascination with prison escapes. An emphatic reminder of this came in 2015 with El Chapo’s escape from Mexico’s high-security Federal Social Readaptation Center No 1. Being a ...

'Your government lies': why the X-Files revival is just right for our climate of extreme scepticism 9.2.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page

The new series airs as two outsider insurgents – Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders – appeal to voters who believe ‘the truth is out there’, rather than in Washington DC

Call me a conspiracy theorist, but I don’t think it’s a coincidence that The X-Files revival has come when there’s the same climate in global politics – extreme scepticism – as when it first aired.

The original series, which ran between 1993 and 2002, was conceived in 1992 – the US election year in which the TV presenter Pat Buchanan came an unnervingly close second to George HW Bush in the New Hampshire primary, and the wacky billionaire Ross Perot horrified the Republican party by running as an independent – and winning 18.9% of the vote in the most successful presidential bid of modern times by a non-politician.

Happy Valley: there’s no one tougher than a middle-aged mum 9.2.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page
The return of the BBC’s police drama means more multitasking misery for Sarah Lancashire’s sergeant, her family and, well, everyone really “Our Catherine had an exciting day at work today,” says her sister Claire, making polite conversation. “She found a dead body.” It’s the little things in a job that make it worthwhile: friendly colleagues, a ready supply of name-brand instant coffee, grand-scale stationery theft etc. Finding a putrefying corpse in a lock-up might not feature on most people’s list of job satisfaction criteria, but things are different in Happy Valley (Tuesday, 9pm, BBC1). The BBC drama – whose first series gripped viewers when it aired in 2014, and which went on to win Baftas before being adopted by Netflix for the subtitled enjoyment of US audiences – brings into focus the unique problems troubling the grandmothers/police sergeants of northern England. For Catherine Cawood (Sarah Lancashire), these problems are as varied as a dead daughter; a behaviourally challenged grandson ...

Premier League tickets: fans have been taken for granted for too long | Owen Gibson 9.2.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page
The mind-boggling TV deal offers a glorious chance for the Premier League to give something back to supporters who cannot change their team as simply as they could switch supermarkets for a cheaper tin of beans When a few hundred fans marched in the summer sunshine on the Premier League’s headquarters, an expensively understated block in Marylebone, in 2013, one particular banner lodged in the memory. Nabbing the title of a Manic Street Preachers song, it proclaimed “If you tolerate this, then your children will be next” alongside a picture of a priced-out father dragging his son into the pub to watch a match. It was this picture, held aloft on a march down Baker Street that featured representatives from some 40 clubs to a tinny soundtrack of Public Enemy’s Fight the Power on a portable ghetto-blaster, that sprang to mind when Ian Ayre attempted to defend Liverpool’s new pricing policy at Anfield this ...

The Knick, Great American Railroad Journeys and Dad's Army: TV review – video 9.2.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page

Telly addict Andrew Collins reflects on the week in TV, which for him is dominated by The Knick, the incredible New York-set early-1900s hospital drama from Cinemax, showing here on Sky Atlantic, whose first season Andrew binged on and whose second season is now showing. This is complemented by Michael Portillo’s Great American Railroad Journeys on BBC2, which also takes place in New York; doc Back In Time For The Weekend is another round of dressing up in the name of living social history; Dad’s Army (the original, not the new film) continues to delight 40 years later in repeats; and Artsnight returns at an unholy hour with a film about masks

Kiren Rijiju's chopper with 8 onbaord makes emergency landing at Hindon airbase 9.2.2016 DNA: Wide Angle
A chopper carrying Union Minister Kiren Rijiju and a BJP MP on Tuesday made an emergency landing at Hindon airbase near here following engine trouble after being airborne for nearly 20 minutes. "We are all safe," Rijiju said. The Minister, along with Lok Sabha member from Tehri-Garhwal Mala Rajya Laxmi Shah, had taken off for Tehri on an Mi-17V5 helicopter from capital's Safdarjung airport. There were eight people on-board the helicopter, including officials of the Ministry of Home Affairs and two television journalists.

"The pilot then decided to make an emergency landing in the nearby Hindon airbase," Rijiju said.  Rijiju, Minister of State for Home, said he was travelling to Tehri to review disaster preparedness and to meet paramilitary personnel deployed along the Sino-India border.
