Beck ta bases

When it comes to top performers at Glasgow Green, Beck is the consummate showman. He may be just a little fellow, but he has a band James Brown would

maim for and all the moves to enthral the masses. Discard the dad rock and get with

the funky Californian.

Beck plays on the main stage at Glasgow Green at 5.50pm on Friday 25 August.

Inside story

Saint or psychopath? Sinner or victim? Charles Bronson was put away in 1974 for armed robbery, with his release due three years later. Yet, he is still inside having embarked upon a campaign of awkwardness, disruption and non-co-operation, all the while impersonating a 19th century bare-knuckled boxer. For some reason, Britain’s Most Dangerous Prisoner (Channel 4, Thu 31 Aug, 9pm) doesn't explain how he's still managed to make all those Deathwish films.

Don’t do that, do this. Fifteen days of unmissable stuff.
