Lottery fever grips the Porter household in the first of a new series of 2 Point 4 Children
2 point 4 Children
8.30pm BBC 1
The first episode of this new series finds the Porter family in upheaval. Ben's bought a lottery ticket, despite an existing house agreement that the lottery is a waste of money ("a tax on the stupid" as Bill puts it). But, as Ben insists, this is a rollover week... and besides, he'd be more than willing to share his millions with the rest of the family. Unfortunately for him, his lottery ticket is in the pocket of his jeans - and his jeans are in the washing machine.
Andrew Marshall's comedy returns in top form, with Gary Olsen, Belinda Lang and the rest of the regular cast and a set of snappy, topical scripts. Last year's series scored audiences of over 13 million, making the Porters the first family of British sitcom. Find out about Gary Olsen's My Kind of Day on page 154.

The art of Africa is something seen as being as mysterious as the continent itself. As the Royal Academy's exhibition Africa: Art of a Continent opens, tonight's Omnibus tells the story of a bronze mask, tracing it from an antique shop in London to its original home in Nigeria. The story it has to tell is one of magic, greed and an extraordinary, hidden tradition.
