Londonist Stays In: 20-26 April


Bringing you the most Londony shows on TV and radio over the coming week.


Dispatches: Crash - How The Banks Went Bust (C4, 20.00-21.00) Yet another show examining how the City boys and girls got it all so wrong, this time helmed by Will Hutton.

Ashes to Ashes (BBC1, 21.00-22.00) Back to the 1980s as the time-travelling, Bowie-referencing cop show returns.

Henry VIII: Mind of a Tyrant (C4, 21.00-22.00) Third part of this slow-burning but fascinating series marking the 500th year of the rotund royal. Written and presented by David "Come along Tubbs" Starkey.


Real Crime: Diamond Geezers (ITV1, 22.35-23.35) Nothing to do with everyone's favourite blogger, but a documentary about that failed diamond heist on the Millennium Dome back in 2000. Be honest, we all secretly wish they'd pulled it off, right?


London Marathon (BBC1, 08.30-12.00; BBC2, 12.00-14.00) Live coverage of the famous race.

Lights, Camera, Landmark (Radio 4, 14.45-15.00) The many films featuring Battersea Power Station.

British Academy Television Awards (BBC1, 20.00-22.00) Graham Norton coming atcha from the Royal Festival Hall.
