Londonist Stays In: 22-28 June


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


The Terrorist Hunter: Tonight (ITV1, 20.00-20.30) Trevor McDonut talks to former terrorism copper Andy Hayman about the 7/7 bombings and the calls for a public inquiry into the attacks.


I'm Running Sainsbury's (C4, 21.00-22.00) The hour long advert places shop assistants in management positions in two busy London stores.

Imagine (BBC1, 22.35-23.25) Yentob's arty show is back, beginning with a look at an over-60s dance troupe preparing a performance for Sadler's Wells.


Jack the Ripper: Tabloid Killer - Revealed (FIVE, 20.00-21.00) Not quite sure we understand the punctuation, but the angle of this Ripper show sounds promising. Did tabloid frenzy over the famous murders drive the killer on?

Famous, Rich and Homeless (BBC1, 21.00-22.00) Annabel Croft, the Marquis of Blandford and Les Battersby off of Coronation Street find out what it's like to frequent the doorways and soup kitchens of Old London Town. Continues at the same time tomorrow.

James May's 20th Century (BBC2, 22.00-22.30) One of countless programmes over the coming month celebrating 40 years since the first (or sixth-to-last if you're a pessimist) moon landing. The London connection? May visits Staveley Road in Chiswick where the first V2 rocket landed in WWII, thus beginning (sort of) the era of space ships.


Celebrity Masterchef (BBC1, 20.00-21.00) The wannabe cooks take to the stoves of St Pancras Grand and Goodman Steakhouse on Maddox Street.


The Film Programme (Radio 4, 16.30-17.00) Francine Stock tells us about The Pool of London, a classic British noir from 1951.


Confessions of an English Opium-Eater (Radio 4, 15.00-16.00) Dramatization of De Quincey's classic narcotic adventures around London.

There's also something called 'Wimbledon' on at all times on all days this week.
