The Rev Peter Owen-Jones is turning his back on consumerism, playing Life Swap with St Francis of Assisi

Oh it's him, the Rev Peter Owen-Jones, the funky preacher we last saw going Round the World in 80 Faiths. Remember? Posh, clever, thoughtful, a bit wild. He looks as if he's lived a bit, and not always in a very godly way. He's Hugh Fearnley Wearnley, but of the mind, not the stomach. Look how he puts a pint of bitter away in one gulp – see what I mean?

This time he's turning his back on consumerism, playing Life Swap with St Francis of Assisi, who also gave up the playboy life to serve God. So St Peter, like St Francis before him, does away with money, handing over his cheque book and credit cards to the BBC. He does hang on to his slate at the village pub, but »

The Genius Of Design | Ashes To Ashes | Shanties And Sea Songs With Gareth Malone | NCIS | How To Live A Simple Life

The Genius Of Design

7pm, BBC2

This five-part series tells the story of the product designer, the person who has to steer a path through the often competing arenas of art, commerce, marketing and production. It's from the same people who made The Genius Of Photography, so it's an intelligent, encompassing approach that attempts to get to the bottom of what design is and how it shapes the world we live in.

Ashes To Ashes

9pm, BBC1

When rioting breaks out at Fenchurch East prison, it's an excuse for Gene Hunt to demonstrate "the noble art of scumbag suppression". There's just one problem: by charging in, Hunt and co walk into an ambush and sergeant Viv James gets left behind. The hostage story interweaves with one of Ashes To Ashes »

Ta-ra, Jack Duckworth: Coronation Street won't be the same without you

9 April 2010 11:28 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Regular visitors to Weatherfield could see that the end was near – but that doesn't make Bill Tarmey's departure any less of a shock

In pictures: Jack Duckworth's 30 years on the Street

Today the nation awoke to news of Jack Duckworth's departure from Coronation Street. Shares in Newton and Ridley may never recover. Actor Bill Tarmey will exit after the 50th anniversary in December – so is Jack set to join his little swamp duck Vera in that great Red Rec in the sky? And will we ever see Little Tommy again?

Those of us who call into Weatherfield several times a week knew the end was near when Jack moved out of No 9 last year. Disappearing to Blackpool for months on end was one thing. Living in suburbia with that Connie was quite another.

For 30 years we've followed Jack's life from home to the Rovers via his allotment and, occasionally, »

The Bible: A History and Pineapple Dance Studios | TV Review

22 February 2010 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It was billed as a history of the Bible, but this was more about Gerry Adams's own legend

The money shot comes about 10 minutes in. ­Taking Gerry Adams into a first-century Ad burial chamber, a well-mannered archaeologist warns conditions are about to get dark and claustrophobic. In a beat, Adams deadpans back with, "That's Ok, Sinn Fein used to be an ­underground organisation." The ­archaeologist is momentarily ­speechless, unsure whether to laugh or check to see if his kneecaps are intact.

Channel 4's The Bible: A History (Sunday) has been rumbling along ­inconsequentially for four weeks, ­filling in time as documentary God-slot fodder, but this week's helping was more of a contract with the devil. Now you could say that if Tony Blair can ­successfully position himself as just one papal visit away from full canonisation, then Adams has long since crawled through the eye of any number of needles, »
