The performers constantly take improvisation risks and not everything comes off, but there are usually more than enough moments of astounding instant brilliance egged on by the intense spirit of competition to make it all well worthwhile. hugh Dennis and the impressive Frankie Boyle are joined by guest Frank Skinner, right, whose speed of thought should be very well-suited to the format. The Mentalist Five, 9pm VIeWeRS are in for a novel twist tonight. After Patrick Jane is temporarily blinded when a bomb explodes, the Mentalist is forced to use his other senses (cue plenty of daredevil gags) to discover who planted the device that killed a man. The case seems to connect to Janes past as a supposed psychic, but what did he do back then for someone to now want him dead? And tensions run high in the rest of the team: Grace has a new boyfriend, which would be good news were it not for the fact that Rigsby seems more than a teensy bit jealous about the affair. G ently radiating Zen- like wisdom, Gerry Robinson is a very d i f f e r e n t s o r t o f businessman from the ones we usually see on tV. Silver- haired, softly spoken, his eyes s h i n i n g w i t h p i e r c i n g i n t e l l i g e nc e, t he mu l t i - millionaire investor could be played by Anthony Hopkins in a movie. In this engrossing series Robinson proffers advice to enterprises in crisis while considering putting in sizable sums of his own cash. tonight there are two critical patients: a lancashire chair manufacturer on its last legs, and in Devon a prize-winning maker of pasties and pies that may itself now be stuffed.Moneytalks:GerryRobinsonhelpsmorestrugglingbusinesses EastEnders BBC1, 7.30pm TheReS a shock for Peggy (Barbara Windsor, right) when the burglar alarm goes off at the Vic -- except its not a stranger whos inside. Cue the return of Archie -- my, how weve missed him. Meanwhile, Janine believes she may have found a sneaky solution to her money problems -- if she can get away with it, that is. that other tV programmes seem to believe represents real business life. you do still get a sense of Robinsons passion for com- merce, though: in both cases this evening hes almost angry about the gap between superb products and poor sales and marketing. yet he cares about the people, too. My heart says one thing, my head says some- thing else, Robinson con- fesses before making his big-money decisions. eventually the bubbling drama comes to the boil, par- ticularly in the fractious rela- tionship in lancashire between the traditionalist owner and the slippery MD foisted upon him by the bank. By the end youll have experienced the human reality of businesses and com- munities fighting to tough it out in these hard times. 11.00 To Buy Or Not To Buy (S). 11.30 Cash In The Celebrity Attic (R,S); BBC News; Weather. 12.15 Bargain hunt (R,S). 1.00 BBC News; Weather (S). 1.30 Regional News And Weather (S). 1.45 Doctors (S).
