Delivering Quality Late

I don't have ratings yet for last night's excellent Panorama, a Blakeway production about doctors from Medecins Sans Frontieres supporting ebola patients (treating is still the wrong word) but I'm sure, at 10.35pm, they won't be stonking.

A pity, because it could have been trimmed from 45 minutes to 30 and still had emotional impact with its core story. Instead, the distinctive, quality-driven BBC offered a third peak-time showing of an episode of Room 101 in Panorama's 8.30pm slot.

Elsewhere Intruders hung on to 472k viewers on BBC2 at 9pm, tonked by Alice Worsley and Len Goodman's BBC4 programme on the history of dancing - 1.09m.
