7.15pm, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Comedy Central. The manic Ace Ventura continues to tackle cases involving stolen or missing animals, usually arriving at the solutions by pure fluke as he blunders his way through the facts in his inimitable way.

10pm, Ffit Cymru, S4C. Helping the Welsh to look after their physical and mental health while self-isolating.

11pm, Jealous Guy - The Assassination Of John Lennon, Sky Documentaries. More than 12 psychologists and psychiatrists interviewed the killer Mark Chapman prior to his trial. All 6 defence experts concluded that Chapman was psychotic; 5 diagnosed paranoid schizophrenia, while the 6th felt that his symptoms were more consistent with manic depression. The 3 prosecution experts declared that his delusions fell short of psychosis, and instead diagnosed various personality disorders. The court-appointed experts concurred with the prosecution's examiners that he was delusional yet competent to stand trial. Chapman's initial explanation was that he had killed Lennon to promote the reading of The Catcher in the Rye novel.




Friday

(nothing)




Daily

8.55am, Frasier, Channel 4. The psychiatrist abandons his bar-propping in Boston (a heavily Irish descendant city in the north eastern USA) in favour of presenting a radio show in Seattle (a more Hippie influenced city in the north west). However, his new life is thrown into upheaval when his father moves in with him - followed by his apparently psychic care assistant Daphne.

(There are just over 260 episodes and it runs in double-bills at 9am daily)
