THE North wind did blow and we had some snow, and what did the robin do then, poor thing? If he had any sense, and it is well known that robins are among the most level-headed of the bird-brained, he would have curled up on the sofa like the rest of us and warmed his extremities on Inside Central Station (BBC Scotland, Sunday, 10pm).

To watch this documentary about the Glasgow landmark was to be transported back to the long hot summer of last year when taps were well and truly aff, as were all bets on how long the heat would last. It seemed like such a long time ago. What will have dated it even quicker for some viewers was the sight of Celtic fans, heading to Hampden for the cup final against Motherwell, singing: “Brendan Rodgers here for ten in a row!” Alas, that bird has long flown south.

Inside Central Station is one of those obviously good ideas you wonder why no-one has thought of it till now. After all, if network television can show fly-on-the- wall documentaries about the ambulance service in Greater Manchester, or what it is like to work in Liberty London, why not get up close and personal with some of the staff at a station that handles the arrival and departure of 950 trains a day and 32 million passengers a year?

Now approaching the half-way mark of a six week run words alone justified the £32 million cost of setting up a new channel for Scotland, but it is a start.

There was a lovely moment, too, when Craig the conductor, who comes from Wishaw but much prefers Glasgow (“No offence to the people from Wishaw”) spoke of his love for music and how his dad used to crank up the volume in the car when Layla came on the radio. It became Craig’s favourite song. As the sound of Eric Clapton faded the tune was picked up on the station piano by none other than Craig himself. Classier than first class.

Cheat (STV, Monday-Thursday, 9pm) was the latest spread over the week drama from ITV, a format the commercial channel is making its own. It nicely subverted expectations by not being all about adultery, though there was some of that, instead concerning itself in the main with honour and honesty and all that ethical motherhood and apple pie stuff.

Sociology lecturer Leah (Katherine Kelly, Becky from Coronation Street as was) had accused one of her students, Rose (Molly Windsor) of paying someone to write her too good to be true dissertation. A little awkward, certainly, but how did events progress from there to the point where Leah and Rose were talking to each other through a glass panel, the viewer none the wiser as to which one was the prisoner?

Writer Gaby Hull did a grand job of laying down notions and pulling them out from under the viewer. Rose was gaslighting Leah, but why? It was only at part way through the third night that matters began to strain credulity (how irritatingly dense was Leah’s husband?), and the ending was patchy, but Kelly and Windsor were terrific, slugging it out like a British Bette and Joan.

Also from our women behaving badly file came Fleabag (BBC1, Monday, 10.35). Writer and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge continues to take the breath away in a good way, either through a laugh out loud line or a moment of piercing sadness, as when a therapist (Fiona Shaw) described our anti-heroine as “a girl with no friends and an empty heart”. For now, anyway.

Fleabag has her eye on a priest (Andrew Scott), for strictly non-religious reasons, while he thinks she is seeking solace after a dreadful loss. It can only end in tears, a few more thrown punches, and spectacular rudeness on the part of Fleabag’s wicked godmother and soon to be evil stepmother (Olivia Colman). So The Thorn Birds got there first, but the devilishly good Waller-Bridge is sure to have the best jokes.

Also on this week, and reviewed in the daily paper and online, were WonderBall, (BBC Scotland, Monday-Thursday) and Yes/No: Inside the Indyref (BBC Scotland, Tuesday, 10pm). Catch both on iPlayer.

WonderBall turned out to be a load of ... nonsense. Hosted by Catriona Shearer, it had three teams of two going through ridiculously complicated motions to win £2000. Does TV land really need another quiz show? If the answer to that question is WonderBall then, no. Figures from ratings body show the viewing figures fell from 14,000 on the first night, to 1,000 the next.

Yes/No: Inside the Indyref continues to be one of the best things on the new channel, together with The Nine and Tutti Frutti. The last instalment this week moves on to the main event. Anyone know if we all lived happily ever after?
