TV This Weekend: Mad Men And Britannia High

This weekend I'd like to draw your attention to a couple of television shows hitting our screens. First up, the first season of the absolutely fantastic drama Mad Men is going to be repeated on BBC4 starting on Saturday evening at 11.30pm and I would highly recommend you watch or record it if you haven't seen it before. It's a stylish, thought provoking and fabulously acted series set at one of New York's most prestigious advertising agencies at the beginning of the 1960s. The storylines interweave to present the work and home lives of the execs and the secretaries, and has period detail that will immerse you completely in the era. Watch, watch, watch!

On a completely different tack, ITV1's musical drama series Britannia High begins on Sunday night at 6.15pm, starring Skins' Mitch Hewer, yummy Adam Garcia and a bunch of relative newcomers portraying the kids and teachers at a stage school and the teen dramas that ensue. I've had a sneak peek at the series, and it's a fun, music-filled experience that will appeal to High School Musical fans and anyone who loves a good sing song.
