Water company Severn Trent hit the headlines (or should that be the ley lines?) earlier this week when it emerged that its engineers still used ancient divining, or “dowsing”, rods to find underground pipes – despite widely held scientific opinion that they don’t actually work.

Last week at the London Palladium, ITV showcased the best of its televisual talent and new content for an audience of advertisers – as well as for soon-to-start chief executive Dame Carolyn McCall, writes Matthew Vincent. Then, yesterday, Amazon announced its new blockbuster TV productions as it seeks to lure more viewers away from traditional broadcasters. Their respective offerings can perhaps be summed up as Simon Cowell, Piers Morgan, and the cast of Loose Women versus a multi-season adaptation of JRR Tolkien’s Hobbit-laden fantasy Lord of the Rings.
