Nick Helm's Heavy Entertainment

This six part comedy series has roughly been following the themes of Nick Helm's six main Edinburgh shows. Thus, tonight, we turn to the topic of War. This being a Nick Helm show though, it doesn't always stay focused - the jokes, conversations and songs end up broaching other topics too. As the preview clip in our guide reveals, misplaced keys are one diversion. BBC Three, 10:30pm. Clips

Also today: No Offence; and repeats like 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown. Radio comedy includes another funny episode of Mark Steel's In Town, this time from Melton Mowbray. Schedule
