Londonist Stays In: 16-22 November


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


Inside Out (BBC1, 19.30-20.00) The local magazine programme looks at light pollution in London, and how to join the Queen's Household Cavalry.

The Queen in 3D (C4, 21.00-22.00) Even the telebox is turning against one-eyed Gordon Brown, as Channel 4 kicks off a week of three-dimensional TV. To get things started, here's London's most famous resident as you've never seen her before - in slightly out-of-phase amber and blue.

Our Mutual Friend (Radio 4, 19.45-20.00) Radio adaptation of Dickens' most London-filled novel continues with part 6. Further installments each night at the same time.


Grimefighters (ITV1, 19.30-20.00) More unmissable stuff, including a blocked drain in Twickenham.

John Sargeant On The Tourist Trail (ITV1, 20.00-21.00) The affable journo-dancer probes the mysterious attraction of the Trooping the Colour ceremony, so beloved of tourists. He also takes a peek inside an exclusive London hotel room.

The Queen in 3D (C4, 21.00-22.00) The multidimensional Windsor wonderwoman is back, and coming at ya.

Imagine (BBC1, 22.35-23.30) Alan Yentob profiles Anish Kapoor during the artist's landmark exhibition at the Royal Academy.


Spooks (BBC1, 21.00-22.00) More London-based espionage.

In The Line Of Fire (ITV1, 22.35-23.35) Following London's armed police as they go about their controversial business. Just to play havoc with digital recording boxes, the film of the same name is on the following night.


Confessions of a Traffic Warden (C4, 21.00-22.00) It must be a stressful job, especially when you consider - as this Westminster-based programme does - that many traffic wardens are new to the country as well as the job.


Garrow's Law: Tales From The Old Bailey (BBC1, 21.00-22.00) New drama set in 18th Century London, where justice often meant a trip to Tyburn Tree.
