4h Conviction: Murder in Suburbia review – a perplexing new case for true-crime fans
The Guardian
This two-part BBC documentary examining a possible miscarriage of justice is fitfully fascinating, but fails to hit the heights of The Staircase If you haven’t seen The Staircase, the original true-crime series just re-released on Netflix with three new episodes, then you must. And if you have seen it, you will know something – quite a lot, actually – about blood spatter analysis. In which case your interest will be piqued by that aspect of the new true-crime series Conviction. It is an absorbing one. Conviction looks at the case of Glyn Razzell, who was convicted of killing his estranged wife Linda, even though her body was never found. The most damning evidence was the blood – her blood – found in the boot of the car he had been driving. Glyn points out that the blood was found only on the third time of searching, and asks how the police could have missed so many spots on two previous searches. He says the blood could have been planted, and that Linda staged her own disappearance. For the past 15 years he has maintained his innocence.

9h Oxford English Dictionary extends hunt for regional words around the world
The Guardian
From ‘hammajang’ to ‘munted’, lexicographers have issued a worldwide call for regionally distinctive words to define The Oxford English Dictionary is asking the public to help it mine the regional differences of English around the world to expand its record of the language, with early submissions ranging from New Zealand’s “munted” to Hawaii’s “hammajang”. Last year, a collaboration between the OED, the BBC and the Forward Arts Foundation to find and define local English words resulted in more than 100 new regional words and phrases being added to the dictionary, from Yorkshire’s “ee bah gum” to the north east’s “cuddy wifter”, a left-handed person. Now, the OED is widening its search to English speakers around the world, with associate editor Eleanor Maier calling the early response “phenomenal”, as editors begin to draft a range of suggestions for inclusion in the dictionary.

11h From Gucci to Beyoncé – how the pink suit took over​ fashion​
The Guardian
The pop star wore one to launch her and Jay-Z’s first joint album, but she’s not the first. From high fashion to the high street, it’s one of the biggest looks of the year Usually one to set trends rather than follow them, Beyoncé this weekend did as the likes of her sister Solange, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik and Salma Hayek have done before her: she wore a pink suit, pushing it to the forefront of 2018’s fashion canon by opting to wear it in the video for the first single from her long-awaited joint album with Jay-Z, Everything Is Love. Of course, being Beyoncé, she did it with more of a sense of pomp than most: standing in front of the Mona Lisa in a Louvre emptied of tourists, leaving space for Queen Bey and Jay-Z to chart their own course through art history as they launched an album that has

11h Nina Simone: the growing legacy of a once underappreciated figure
The Guardian
The recognition of the singer’s North Carolina home as a national treasure marks another step in reassessing her remarkable career Nina Simone always felt underappreciated during her lifetime. She had a right to. After 1960, her albums never put more than a dent in the lower end of the pop charts. And her singles made no greater impression. More, the press, the industry, and even some audiences found her uncompromising performances and adamant character either off-putting or baffling.

17h Inside Jean-Michel Basquiat’s teen years
The Guardian
New documentary Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat reveals his early career, from the mob and Xerox machines to being a bad house guest Jean-Michel Basquiat was a pain in the neck. In the late 1970s and 80s he was without a fixed abode and spent a lot of time sleeping on other people’s sofas. Basquiat wasn’t averse to painting his housemates’ clothes and fridge, or dropping in at 3am, pumping industrial music on his boombox, much to the consternation of the building’s “super”. “He was a kid,” laughs Sara Driver, the creator of Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat, a documentary that recounts the early life and precocious times of the NYC street kid and nascent painter. Drawing from interview and archive footage, as well as a remarkable cache of art and ephemera belonging to Basquiat’s former girlfriend Alexis Adler, it follows his life from his dropping out of high school through to the sale of his first major work and runs roughly from 1978 until 1981. “Before Reagan,” notes Driver, who recalls both the man and the period personally. “Everything changed after Reagan became president.”
