He then
J.J. Abrams Wants to See Ava DuVernay Direct a 'Star Wars' Film "To me, the knee-jerk reaction if I had to [name someone] is Ava DuVernay, who I think would just kill it," Abrams told Nerdist when asked about potential female writers or directors he'd like to see working on a Star Wars feature. "She is as much a

Sir Ian Botham joined by South African legend Graeme Smith ahead of his walk ... I won't relish the downhill finish that looks like a skiing black run – uphill is fine, downhill is the tricky bit, but it will be great to be up and walking. There are going to be some big names from South African sport joining me on the walk, and I
Barry Richards: The South African great forgotten in his country In South Africa, though, the presence of Richards and others from that great South African side, including Mike Procter, Graeme Pollock and Lee Irvine, is viewed more as an irritant than an inspiration to current or future generations. Their faces are
Pepper aims for another Ibrox scalp “Lee Wallace was there, Ian Black played, Lee McCulloch was on and I think Kevin Kyle came on as a sub. We had Graeme Shinnie, Owain Tudur Jones and players like that. We were one of the first Premiership team they'd played since they went down and

Eye checks on the high street can detect the early signs of dementia, a British study has found. The thinning of nerves in the eye could alert doctors to problems in the brain, giving hope of catching dementia at an early enough stage to take action.

Nowadays buzzards are a much more common sight in the eastern half of Britain than they were 25 years ago. About fifty pairs of these raptors breed in Britain, in sites that are kept secret where possible. Now, with the end of breeding, they have begun to drift about the countryside. For instance, one was seen soaring over the M3 at Basingstoke, Hampshire, last Saturday. When they soar they keep their wings flat or drooping, unlike common buzzards, which slightly lift their wings. They like to dig out the nests of wasps and bees and eat the inhabitants. They have a helmet of scaly head-feathers to protect them against stings. Jorge Aguilar-Agon, artist, 80. Allan Border, Australian cricketer and sports commentator, 61.

What If Pokemon Go Was an Episode of 'Black Mirror'? - Hollywood Reporter
If the phenomenon that is Pokemon Go has left you confused and disoriented, a new video from filmmaker Patrick H. Willems will put it in the right context … by re-imagining it as an episode of Charlie Brooker's sci-fi dystopian anthology series... The mash-up of pop culture obsessions is nothing new for Willems, who is the man that gave the world Wes Anderson's X-Men and Werner Herzog's existential Ant-Man. Willems directed and co-wrote the story with Matt and Jacob Torpey, both of whom appear in the video alongside Chloe Holgate and Mike Yarinsky. A third season of the real Black Mirror is in production for a future Netflix release. Watch Willems' Black Mirror: Pokemon Go below.www.hollywoodreporter.com
Wednesday's best TV: Wild Animal Reunions, The Three Day Nanny ... - The Guardian
8pm, ITV What is it like to re-encounter an orphan elephant that you helped raise but that was subsequently returned to the wild. Seemingly keyed off by the huge popularity on YouTube of footage featuring Christian the lion, purchased from Harrods as a cub in 1969, emerging from the wild to hug those who once cared for him, here’s a documentary that captures scenes of... Black bears and chimps feature, too. The Three Day Nanny. 8pm, Channel 4 Bobbie and Freddie are pre-school brothers who constantly fight. Their mum has struggled to recover from post-natal depression, so she leaves her partner to cope during the day – but he can’t. Enter sharp-eyed, soft-edged Kathryn Mewes for a third series of domestic bootcamps that, from the outside, look like simple advice eked out over an hour. Ironically, one problem this week is the boys’ dad may have seen too many parenting programmes. Jane the Virgin. 8pm, E4 By both celebrating and parodying the turbo-charged emotional register of telenovelas, Jane the Virgin doesn’t so much blur the line between reality and fantasy as erase it completely. While nominally about estranged parents Jane and Rafael clashing over cute baby Mateo, this episode of the appealing sitcom abruptly sprouts full-blown black-and-white silent movie sequences, with the regular cast gleefully mugging in glam 1920s... Graeme Virtue. 9pm, BBC2 Having spent its first episodes outraging public sensibilities with nudity, Versailles must now wow them with its plotting. The bigger picture of tonight’s episode is Louis’s proposed alliance with England, in order that the two nations might join forces against William of Orange and invade Holland. Louis (George Blagden) chooses Henriette (Noemie Schmidt) to negotiate – a big ask since the beginning of the episode sees her have a miscarriage. Masters of the Pacific Coast: The Tribes of the American Northwest. 9pm, BBC4 Archaeologist Jago Cooper of the British Museum delves into the 10,000-year history of tribal culture in the American northwest for this new two-parter, paddling his canoe against the rugged backdrop of the Alaskan Panhandle. By developing a symbiotic relationship with their environment, the tribes achieved remarkable social complexity and stability, all without the need for agriculture. Cooper’s admiration for their achievements is infectious. The Daily Show. 30am, Comedy Central Following Jon Stewart as host of America’s top current-affairs comedy show was always a tough ask of Trevor Noah and, admittedly, viewing figures have declined. But the South African Noah has a cool, quizzical outsider’s perspective and the show’s ambitious, onsite coverage of the Democratic convention, starting tonight, should provide a ratings boost. In a light-starved New York, a sadistic serial killer is at work, each murder linked to one of the seven deadly sins. Morgan Freeman, as a veteran cop whose hooded eyes have seen it all, is persuaded to nurse rookie Brad Pitt through his first case, a gothic trail of death leading to a gut-churning resolution in the film’s only sunlight. Despite the nastiness, there is little graphic violence. Fincher lets the audience’s imagination do the work. The Reader (Stephen Daldry, 2008) 1. 35am, Channel 4.
