Good TV

Oh wow. Just wow. Every week i make this list of what I want to watch on mainstream TV in the week ahead, and it's often very thin. But this week, for some reason, the schedules abound with riches. The last instalment of Little boy Blue, about the killing of a young Everton fan. Should have been deeply depressing, but was done with real sensitivity and conviction. Good documentaries on people facing death, and the historical roots of ISIS; again, don't sound cheerful, but both stimulating and well done. And then there's OJ Simpson:Made in America, five hours of quality documentary, shown an hour at a time over five successive nights. We haven't been spoiled like this for years, and it may never happen again, but I'll grab it while it lasts.
