TV Guide 2015-06-27

Thought Big Brother (C5, TV3, 5*, MTV, 3e) had reached the bottom of its creative barrel? Think again: they're having an eighties week. Good week on radio: a Fighting Talk special (Radio 5, Sun), Miles Jupp says It's Not What You Know (2) (Radio 4, Tue) with Richard Osman and his mother. Ian McMillan goes Looking for Charlie Williams (Radio 4, Thu). And if you wanted to know what Ejector Seat looks like with sign language, set your video for Thursday morning on ITV.
