Laugh out loud

HBO presents Bean starring Rowan Atkinson, Peter Macnicol, Burt Reynolds and Pamela Reed. The movie will be aired on August 19 at 9 pm.

As an employee of London’s National Art Gallery, Mr Bean’s sole job requirement is to guard paintings by sitting quietly in front of them all day — something the hyperactive Bean is quite incapable of.

A human resource person’s nightmare, Bean is soon banished by the gallery’s board to the US with a brand new assignment — to pose as art expert and accompany an invaluable painting, purchased by an American philanthropist, General Newton.

Over on the other side of the pond, Bean successfully charms the hardened Americans with the hysterically funny ways in which he deals with the world.

Touring a fascinating country

Watch Mera India — Paul Merton in India on August 19 at 10 pm on FOX History and Entertainment Channel. Having spent the first few weeks of his trip travelling through the North West of India in the dust and heat, Paul is determined to find the complete ‘alternative’ and so heads to the lush, wet hills of the North East and a small hill station called Shillong.

Known as the Scotland of the East, it promises to be the break he is looking for. On arrival, his local guide, Prabhat, surprises him with the information that this town is the rock’n’roll capital of India.

Bemused and somewhat unconvinced, Paul decides to find out why. From the hills of Shillong, Paul heads to the former capital of the Raj. Kolkata is a city that vies to be the cultural heart of India, so Paul enjoys an evening out sampling the burgeoning comedy scene and meeting local comic Mir, who provides an insight into Indian humour and the city. The next day, Mir meets Paul on the banks of the sacred River Ganges.
