Taskmaster

Alex Horne devised this new show on the live comedy circuit. He appears as the assistant here, but Greg Davies has stepped up to take on the role of The Taskmaster - a position that suits him rather well. Basically he sets Romesh Ranganathan, Frank Skinner, Roisin Conaty, Josh Widdicombe and Tim Key a bunch of tasks to do over the next six weeks. The trailer in our guide perhaps explains it better. Dave, 10pm. Guide   Interviews

Also: It's time for the team's presentation in Not Safe For Work. Repeats include a Norman Wisdom documentary. Schedule
