What to watch and review on Thursday, December 1.
Who Do You Think You Are? (BBC1 8pm) Amanda Holden proclaims that she would love to find a French connection, but she is not talking about the movie or the clothing company. She wants a confirmation of her Gallic ancestry that she’s so often heard her mother talking about. Cue the sobbing as she is indeed related to French winemakers and discovers many relatives named Louis.
The Apprentice (BBC1, 9pm) Lord Sugar asks the entrepreneurial wannabes to design a virtual reality computer game, a challenge that leads to mystifying choices and leaden ideas. Team Nebula’s badger-based space game is an inexplicable concept that is nearly called Badger Hunt, a concept which sounds more like a cruel attempt to contain bovine tuberculosis.
