Darts: World Pdc Championship

7pm, Sky Sports 1

Live coverage from Alexandra Palace, where the first round concludes. It was at this stage last year where the Ally Pally crowd were first alerted to the talents of Dutch prodigy Michael van Gerwen, who downed Paul Lim 3-0. Van Gerwen would go on to lose to Phil Taylor in the final, two days after coming inches away from consecutive nine-dart finishes in his semi-final victory over James Wade. Wade is in action today, up against Darren Webster, with 2004 finalist Kevin Painter also in competition. Gwilym Mumford

The Silent War; Byzantium: A Tale of Three Cities; Christmas Supermarket Secrets – TV review

12 December 2013 11:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The cold war submariners were full of daring – but what was the point of it all?

It could be that the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy has concentrated a few minds. Or it could just be there is only one thought available to be shared by TV's commissioning editors at any one time. Either way, the cold war has been as hard to avoid on television in recent weeks as it was during the 1960s and 70s.

The Silent War (BBC2), the story of the undersea warfare between the Us, Soviet and British navies, has been the best of the lot – primarily for the testimonies of the submariners themselves. No longer bound (too much) by the need for secrecy, they revealed an unexpected world of adrenaline junkies, where the excitements and thrills of the chase were as much the submariners' raison d'etre as global realpolitik.

Charley Boorman's USA Adventure
