Friday's TV.

Mastercrafts BBC2, 9pm The manufacture of glass was introduced to Britain by the Romans more than 2,000 years ago, around the same time that Christianity took off. The two developments became entwined as stained glass was used to tell Bible stories to the largely illiterate congregation attending the great cathedrals of the Middle Ages. It usually takes around five years to become skilled in the art of stained glass, but Abigail Ross, James Wignall and Valerie Rolls have just six weeks to master the basics.

QI BBC1, 8.30pm Grease, or rather Greek is the word in this week's show as national treasure Stephen Fry poses more clever teasers in the hope of stumping his guests Clive Anderson, Phill Jupitus, Rich Hall and regular panellist Alan Davies. It promises to be an unmissable half hour, even if the new 8.30pm slot has left some fans gnashing their teeth. Fry and company have to mind their Ps and Qs a little more in the pre-watershed timeslot, which may muffle some of their comic edge.
