The ever changing landscape of the television schedule has changed once more. Two big BBC programs have finished their current series and the weekend running order is light of any motor-spot with the climatic conclusion of the Formula one 2010 season. However we should all be happy that ITV have greased the palms of Pj and Duncan (Ant and Dec) for another outing for I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, that this year features the iconic vocalist from the Happy Mondays and the only man banned from appearing on channel 4, Shaun Ryder.
Note - ongoing i will only be featuring program that are on the Freeview platform. It just makes a time consuming job just a little easier.

Film of the week Hotel Rwanda
