Tennis: BNP Paribas Masters
10am, Sky Sports 3
Day one coverage of the tournament formerly known as the Paris Masters, from Bercy's Palais Omnisports. The Masters has been dominated in recent years by the usual suspects. Three of the last four winners have been David Ferrer, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic; however, the presence in last year's final of unseeded Jerzy Janowicz demonstrates that the unlikely is not entirely unthinkable. This year's favourites for the title include all of the above, plus messrs Nadal, Del Potro and Tsonga. Andrew Mueller
Tales From Northumberland With Robson Green
- Andrew Mueller, Ben Arnold, Julia Raeside, Martin Skegg, David Stubbs, Hannah J Davies, John Robinson

Writing an introduction to an article about quite possibly the best character in the entire Friday The 13th series (aside from Jason, obviously..) shouldn’t be this hard, but what do you say about the only person who not only handed Mr. Voorhees his ass, not once like most survivors, but three times? I’m kidding, of course…there’s plenty to be said, and well, it’s time to say it. So, without further ado, Great Character Arcs in Horror: Tommy fucking Jarvis.
Friday The 13th Part IV: The Final Chapter is not only my favorite entry into the series, but it’s always one of my five favorite films of all time. Every single thing about that movie does it for me, the teens, the kills, the dancing..and Tommy Jarvis. Played by Corey Feldman (The Lost Boys, The Goonies…if you don’t know Feldman, shoot yourself »
Tussle Over TV Ratings
Sony Entertainment Television, Times TV and Ndtv have discontinued subscriptions with Kantar and Nielsen’s Tam Media Research, India’s leading TV ratings agency; Tam data determines spending for 75% of India’s annual $2.4 billion ad budget. The three TV nets claim anomalies in the measurement of small markets (those below 100,000 people), saying they bring down average ratings for channels nationwide. Tam began measuring smaller markets after complaints from broadcaster Doordarshan, whose channels are often the only ones available in the more remote areas. Tam reps said they are open to discussions on the topic. Meanwhile, the Advertising Agencies Assn. of India and Indian Society of Advertisers are supporting Tam, saying its data is essential until the 2014 launch of ratings agency Broadcast Audience Research Council, a joint venture among the Aaai, Isa and the Indian Broadcasting Foundation.

Announced last week, Al Jazeera English has now premiered its new 6-episode series on Artscape, titled The New African Photography, which documents changes across the continent through the eyes of its photographers, in an effort to "take back control" of images of Africa with more nuanced, varied depictions of the continent, instead of the extremes we often get. Expect nods to pioneers like Malick Sidibé and autodidact Seydou Keïta. The first of six episodes (one of which was executive produced by Viva Riva director Djo Munga) premiered on April 22, and is available to watch online. Titled Invisible Borders, I've embedded it below for you to check out. It's 25 minutes long. Al Jazeera will release an episode every week, with episode 2 coming on April 29. 1.

December was Tarantino Month here at Sos, and since January is dedicated to westerns, I thought it would be best to whip up some articles spotlighting films that influenced Tarantino’s Django Unchained. Since I began my list back in December, I’ve noticed similar lists popping up online – all of which are somewhat suspect, since they recommend some terrible films. For my money, all of the movies listed below are essential viewing for fans of Django Unchained, and come highly recommended.
Note: This is the third of a three part article.
