Press Clippings

If you seek intellectual nourishment then, at all costs, avoid The Ape That Got Lucky (11pm, Radio 4), a new comedy science series featuring Chris Addison (last seen on BBC4's superb The Thick of It). Tonight: why man developed language (answer: so cavewomen could moan at cavemen for not tidying up).
