Mobile thrillers

Television: The mobile-phone video was the hinge of the plot in two high-end thrillers launched at the weekend: The Code  (BBC4, Saturday) and Homeland  (Channel 4, Sunday)

Water feature

Television:  WHO owns a river? It is a good question, and it lay at the heart of Sacred Rivers With Simon Reeve

A happy man

Television: Marvellous (BBC2) really was just that. A biopic of a living legend, Neil Baldwin - known to all in Stoke on Trent and everywhere else as Nello - it even trespassed on that most unfashionable ground: making the Church of England appear positive and sympathetic

Consult the coracle

Television: IN THE Guardian Edinburgh International Television Festival debate about religion on TV, which I discussed last week, the Channel 4 representative championed his continuing commitment to religious broadcasting by referring to The Real Noah's Ark: Secret History 

Godly discussion

Television: ONE of the hottest tickets at this summer's Guardian Edinburgh International Television Festival was a public debate about the place of religion in UK television, "God: TV's Holy Grail?" 

Dickensian vision

Television: WOULD Charles Dickens have written for EastEnders? The case for was argued by the veteran EastEnders scriptwriter Tony Jordan, in the first of his new series, ludicrously entitled The Secret Life of Books 

Remarkable objects

Television: Everyday Miracles is a title that is guaranteed to excite the interest of readers of the Church Times. Its subtitle, The genius of sofas, stockings and scanners, may have acted as more of a turn-off; but turning off would have been a mistake

City of new ideas

Television: THE spotlight in recent weeks has been on 1914, but Bright Lights, Brilliant Minds: A tale of three cities focused attention six years earlier. Dr James Fox showed what a crucial part events in Vienna that year played in the genesis of the Great War.

Path to the vote

Television: BBC2's Women of World War One featured Kate Adie. The programme was about the way the part played by women in the Great War transformed their place in society

Live and emotional

Television: GIVE the BBC a decent anniversary, and it licks its lips in expectation. Give it a centenary, and joy is unconfined. On 4 August, the anniversary of the outbreak of the Great War, all the stops were pulled out, and the result was nearly seven hours of live television. 

Hope amid the hate

Television: CHILDREN OF SYRIA  brought to our comfortable living rooms the reality of war - not a century ago, but today, now. The BBC's Lyse Doucet produced a most powerful documentary: personal, direct, and involving.
