The UK has a particularly strong showing in the World Documentary Competition line-up, with films including John Akomfrah's The Stuart Hall Project (about the anti-nuclear campaigner, not the It's A Knockout presenter), Andy Heathcote and Heike Bachelier's film about the year in the life of a farmer, The Moo Man, and Who is Dayani Cristal? about the drama sparked by the discovery of an anonymous body in the Arizona desert, directed by Marc Silver.

"Some of the very best of British TV has been made right here … up north!" Tess Daly tells us on TV Greats: Our Favourites From The North (Sat, 8.15pm, BBC2). Let's be blunt, this may be masquerading as a clips show but it's really an hour-long propaganda film about the clarity of vision behind the BBC's move to Salford. And you can't blame them for trying; they've spent a gazillion groats on it. And I love a bit of propaganda. I'm a very suggestible woman.

Even so, Sky is going to have to try a good deal harder to persuade me to buy one of the new 3D television sets. The Ryder Cup, continuing today thanks to the weather (rain in Wales in October, who would have thought it?), is Sky's biggest 3D broadcast to date and the broadcaster is clearly hoping the event will give 3D telly a big push,
BBC Radio 5 Live honoured sports reporter Stuart Hall last night with a tribute show to mark the veteran broadcaster's 80th birthday on Christmas Day.
A commentator on Match of the Day during the late 1960s, he still shares his thoughts on football in witty, idiosyncratic reports for 5 Live. A noted Manchester City fan, he was the original host of the BBC's A Question of Sport, but it is probably as the presenter of ludicrous gameshow It's a Knockout during the 1970s and 80s that he enjoyed his widest popularity – wheezing with infectious laughter through its slapstick competitions across Britain and in its European version, Jeux Sans Frontieres.
Much of the pleasure he brings resides in his voice itself – warm, ebullient and playful, with the rhythm of a natural raconteur.
