    I caught the last half-hour of The World's Most Extraordinary Homes last night it, the last of 4 episodes showcasing homes in mountainous, forested, coastal and underground environments, and the house they visited at the very end was simply superb and well worth viewing.

    Click here to watch the series on iPlayer.

    The Storyville on Zero-Day exploits and specifically Stuxnet was superb IMO. Still up on iPayer. In fact Storyville is consistently excellent. The last Sky At Night is worth a look too, the featured computer mapping of the Milky Way is just staggering.

    The Francis Bacon doc last night was superb. There was a film later too that I recrded but haven't played yet.

    Love Is the Devil is an excellent film. Derek Jacobi plays him very well. Even Daniel Craig is good, which is saying something.

    The makers were denied the rights to show the original paintings, so they had to be creative with the visuals, which I think adds to the film.

    It is a very good film. I know the guy who edited it. He did a great job.
