Reading the riot act.

PLAYHOUSE PRESENTS... CITY HALL Thur Sky Arts 1 9pm With London's mayoral elections having taken place last Thursday, it's an appropriate time to enjoy a fictional version of the race starring Olivia Williams - who is certainly much easier on the eye than leading London candidates Boris Johnson and Ken Livingstone. She plays a housewife who is thrust into the job after her defiant stand against rioters.

And as the new Mayor of London, she guests on a low-brow chat show and has to fight the prejudice of the old boy network headed up by the Conservative candidate (played by Martin Shaw).

It all looks amusingly real to us.
