The Guardian
May Miles Thomas delivers one of the year’s most enjoyable documentaries with a vivid portrait of her passionate, embattled mother-in-law May Miles Thomas is an intelligent and valuable film-making presence, and her new film is an engrossing cine-memoir of her mother-in-law. This is one of the most enjoyable documentaries of the year, and the fact that no distributor or UK festival has yet picked it up is baffling. It is a deeply engaging kind of personal cinema, or essay cinema, or autobiographical cinema, touching on notions of family and secrecy, beautifully filmed and composed, mixing contemporary location shots with a trove of home movies and photographs. The original music by Euan Stevenson is excellent, and there is a wonderful narrative voiceover from Sîan Griffiths, who portrays Thomas’s heroine, Erica Eisner, using the vast archive of her letters and diaries.

The 1Xtra presenter didn’t remember his father, and everything he had heard about him was bad. So why was he so driven to track him down? Mim Shaikh is explaining why he went looking for his father. “My nan always said to me that when you turn 25, you become a real man,” the the BBC 1Xtra presenter says. “That’s when you know your own mind and can make proper choices.” Now 27, Shaikh does seem to have changed in the past two years. He is still as warm and good-humoured as he was when we last met, but he seems more serious. It was the death of his grandmother in 2016, he tells me, that “changed everything” for him.

21h How to Get a Good Night’s Sleep review – cures insomnia, not in the way they intended
The Guardian
Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford have sleeping disorders: cue an hour of bewildering tosh featuring body scans, dental sleep practitioners and snoring I have always thought that Eamonn Holmes makes much more sense if you imagine him and his career as part of a murder-mystery television drama in which he is unmasked as the culprit in the third act. All the things that are so unsettling about him – the cold, glinting eyes in the cuddly frame, the oddly aggressive “jokes”, the sense of malevolence always threatening to break through that strenuous geniality – would then make sense. It is a long-term, tour de force performance that makes Jodie Comer in Killing Eve look like Noele Gordon in Crossroads. None of this was laid to rest by the documentary How to Get a Good Night’s Sleep (Channel 5), presented by Holmes and his – it is taking every ounce of strength not to preface this with “long-suffering” – wife and This Morning co-host, Ruth Langsford.

Churchill by Andrew Roberts review – is it possible to break through the myth?22h Churchill by Andrew Roberts review – is it possible to break through the myth?
The Guardian
The great statesman’s standing in the Britain of 2018 is arguably higher than it was in 1945. This biography too easily dismisses his less heroic sideHow to assess the career of a world-changing politician who was also a prolific journalist, writer and incessant self-publicist? Aside from his other achievements, Winston Churchill wrote a six-volume, 1.9m-word account of the second world war and his role in winning it. Are we able, more than five decades after his death, to peer over the mountain of his reputation and his writings – more than 40 books and thousands of speeches – and find the real man? As well as the size of Churchill’s output, there is the seductive eloquence of his words. Like the lines of Blake’s “And did those feet in ancient time”, some of Churchill’s more lyrical passages are so perfectly constructed and deftly targeted that they can induce, even in sceptics, momentary lapses of critical analysis. I say this as a sceptic who, although publicly critical of the man and deeply wary of the myths that surround him, named my production company, Uplands, after a phrase taken from his most famous wartime speech (“If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be freed and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands”). His command of language was such that he was a recipient of the Nobel prize in literature. Churchill the war leader has to be disentangled from the propaganda image created by him and those around him, and which was itself a significant part of the war effort.
