The Magic of Julia Bradbury doesn't seem to have worked for The Wonder of Britain, ITV's new five-part history/countryside conflation. Against BBC warhorse Silent Witness at 9pm last night, it only attracted 1.7m viewers - 7.6% of the available audience.

Also distracting ITV viewers was the BBC2/Plum Pictures documentary, Inside [Richard Branson's] Necker Island, which seems to have been commissioned as part of the Science and Natural History genre, but clearly was meant to titillate. It ended up with 2.8m viewers, 12.4% share.

Inside Necker Island was described as "an ogling, panting documentary" by the Mail's TV critic, Christopher Stevens. Which is rich.
