All the most Londony shows on TV and radio this week.

Wednesday

Live UEFA Champions League (ITV1, 19.30-22.00) It's the quarter finals, and Arsenal take on Barcelona.

Thursday

Museum of Life (BBC2, 20.00-21.00) First in a six-part series documenting the work of the Natural History Museum. Not to be missed!

In Our Time (Radio 4, 21.30-22.00) Melvyn Bragg and Co. look at the history of cities, in the second part of this special. The all-British (sounding) panel keep returning to London for examples.

Friday

Good Friday Liturgy (Radio 4, 15.00-15.30) Bit of an odd one for us to list, granted, but the idea of a reverend walking across London, picking out the sights and sounds that evoke his faith sounds like an interesting one, even to a bunch of godless scoundrels like us.

Ashes to Ashes (BBC1, 21.00-22.00) Return of the London-set, time-travelling, hypen-inducing, cop drama.

Sliding Doors (ITV2, 21.00-23.05) Affable thought-provoker in which Gwyneth Paltrow's life takes different directions depending on whether she catches or misses a Tube.

Saturday

The Great Offices of State (BBC2, 19.30-20.30) Excellent series, this, and a shame to see it come to an end, but we suppose there are only so many great offices of state. Tonight, Michael Cockerill goes behind the scenes at the Treasury.

Sunday

The First London Marathon (Radio 4, 11.15-12.00) As the great race approacheth (25 April), this documentary reunites runners from the very first race in 1981.

Mr Haydn's London Experience (Radio 4, 13.30-14.00) The composer's stay in London (1791-1795) is examined.

Layer Cake (Five, 21.00-23.10) Another London gangster caper with Daniel Craig as lead man.
