Monday’s best TV: Britain’s Hardest Workers: Inside the Low Wage Economy; Ripper Street; 500 Questions

21 August 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Low-paid workers compete to hang on to their jobs in a slightly perverse twist on Big Brother; the Victorian cop show returns – and Giles Coren hosts a new gameshow

Panellists Ann Widdecombe, Russell Kane and Dan Walker debate the answer to questions before offering their majority view to a contestant to help them win a cash prize. While each celeb’s eagerness to showcase their knowledge ensures that panel chemistry is lacking, the literature, geography and art-focused questions encourage both intriguing and watchable debate.

Stupid Man, Smart Phone review – how do you transport a camel across Morocco? Maybe Google knows …

Comedian Russell Kane is the Stupid Man. Unfairly, I think; he doesn’t seem at all stupid to me, but by stupid, it really means hopeless when it comes to survival. With Kane in this first episode is Arron Crascall, the video prankster (that wasn’t »
