Friday Night With Jonathan Ross
16x14 (8/5/09 edition)

The Mentalist
1x11 Red John's Friends

[Watch it (again) on Demand Five.]

Hobbits, monsters and CSI vampires
(from Newsnight Review)
An interview with film director Guillermo Del Toro, mainly covering his forthcoming work. Always worth a read. Tonight's Newsnight Review had a related feature, apparently, as well as several other interesting features by the looks of things. I missed it though, so iPlayer it is!
