Pick of the Day

Kevin McCloud's Rough Guide to the Future, 9.00pm, Channel 4

Like most of us, comedians Jon Richardson and Phil Wang and broadcaster Alice Levine have concerns about what lies in store for humankind. But one who remains passionately optimistic about technology and the future is Kevin McCloud.

In this new three-parter - made in partnership with Vodafone, it must be stated - Kevin sends these three sceptics off around the world, as they decide for themselves if technology will help us meet the challenges humanity faces.

In the first episode, Kevin dispatches Jon Richardson to the US to explore the latest advances in food production. Phil Wang is off to China to experience a stomach-churning solution to how we cope with waste. And Alice heads for Japan and an encounter with robots.
