THE MORNING LINE ‣ The highly entertaining show about the BBC in the late 1950s, The Hour, returns to BBC America tonight for a second season. The Times' TV critic Mike Hale is lukewarm about the show, noting the current scandal involving accusations of pedophilia against host Jimmy Savile and the Newsnight investigative report that was to air on the network before being canceled. Hale fails to mention that the Times now has its own connection to the BBC scandal: Mark Thompson began this month as the Times' president and chief executive. Before being hired by the Times, Mr. Thompson was the director general of the BBC when the Newsnight report was canceled. In the spirit of the season, we'll assume fuller disclosure in the future… Also in the spirit of the season, gifts that will brighten up or enhance a wall.
