Channel for …

TA81grabHaving failed to mark this year’s 30th anniversary of the launch of Channel 4, Telly Addict compensates by featuring two shows that ended last week in fine style: the second series of Fresh Meat, which has long since left the description “sitcom” behind, and the one-off four parter Secret State, which dragged A Very British Coup into our current, centre-everything age of corporate takeover. There’s a throw-ahead to C4’s next big thing, The Fear, which of course started last night, after we’d recorded Telly Addict, and thus will be dealt with next week. And Michael Portillo’s charming Great Continental Railway Journeys on BBC2, because not everything can be Channel Swore (as the papers branded it, 30 years ago).
