Review: Bill Burr goes back to the '70s for Netflix's 'F is for Family'
It's not a knock on Netflix's "F is for Family" to say that its title sequence is far and away the best thing about it. The animated comedy, set in an unnamed Rust Belt city in 1973 where Frank Murphy (Bill Burr, who co-created the show with "Simpsons" vet Michael Price) works in the baggage handling department of a local airline, has a pretty dazzling one that tells you everything you need to know about its hero — his backstory, his frustration, and the main themes of the story — in a brisk 45 seconds. We start with Frank as a teenager graduating high school in the early '50s. As the opening chords of Redbone's 1973 hit "Come and Get Your Love" plays, Frank tosses aside his graduation robes and literally flies into the air, an entire world of possibility ahead of him. Suddenly, a draft notice smacks him in the face and his

Jimmy Doherty signs exclusive Channel 4 deal

Jimmy's Farm presenter and former BBC agricultural specialist agrees three-year deal with broadcaster

Farmer and BBC food presenter Jimmy Doherty is switching to Channel 4 in a new exclusive deal.

The Jimmy's Farm presenter has signed to Channel 4 for three years. Doherty – a school friend of chef Jamie Oliver – was the BBC's agricultural specialist.

He shot to fame in 2004 with Jimmy's Farm, a series about a 150-acre site specialising in rare-breed pork with its own restaurant and butcher, which he helped set up with £55,000 from Oliver.

He was given more prominence under Jay Hunt when she was BBC1 controller, fronting the popular Jimmy's Food Factory. This featured Doherty trying to recreate industrial food such as processed cheese and squirt cream in his barn.

Hunt is now on gardening leave before joining Channel 4 as chief creative officer early next year.

Doherty said: "I'm hugely excited about the range and

Jay Hunt faces dilemma over renewal of Gordon Ramsay's Channel 4 deal

Ramsay's contract runs until mid-2011 and new chief creative officer will have to decide if he still has ratings golden touch

The question of whether to renew Gordon Ramsay's exclusive deal with Channel 4 will be one of the biggest decisions awaiting Jay Hunt when she joins as chief creative officer on 5 January.

Ramsay's four-year contract runs until the middle of 2011 and with disappointing figures for his latest Channel 4 series by his impressive standards and lurid media coverage of his personal life and business dealings, Hunt will have to decide if he still has the ratings golden touch.

The unflattering headlines reached a crescendo last week with Ramsay's open letter to his mother-in-law in the pages of the London Evening Standard, in which he revealed he had paid a private detective to investigate his father-in-law and ousted business manager, Chris Hutcheson.

One source close to Channel 4 said:
