Outstanding Journeys with Simon Reeve.

8pm, BBC Two

Reeve has been confined to his sofa for the the greater part of this past

calendar year, just like the rest of us, and so this new sequence provides some

welcome wanderlust in revisiting clips from the lots of journeys he has

taken in excess of the last 15 yrs. This opening instalment focuses on the

persons he has met on his travels, including the brave Burmese human

legal rights campaigner who led him undercover into the state in 2010, as

very well as an emotional face with a Bangladeshi baby worker. Ammar Kalia

Billionaire Cruise Ship: Paradise Island

7pm, Channel 4

The private island of Ocean Cay in the Bahamas is an unspoiled

tropical paradise – right until 5,000 travellers are shipped in on a luxury

cruise. As workers feed, clean up and dance to deliver the demands of their

boss, they also recruit locals to established up a not-very-genuine craft

sector for the travelers. Hannah Verdier

The Trump Clearly show: The Downfall

preceding 4 years. In advance of November’s election, this sequence tracked

Obtaining Alice

9pm, ITV

Immediately after the cosy chaos of the Durrells, Keeley Hawes’s most recent ITV

venture is an off-kilter delight, veering from authentically raw grief

to goofiness through some blackly comic a single-liners. Episode two of the

sequence sees Alice (Hawes) grappling with her late spouse Harry’s

insider secrets and recoiling from regular funeral plans. Graeme Advantage


10pm, BBC Two

This two-aspect doc on the life and profession of bike owner Lance Armstrong

supplies a intriguing insight into the variables that led him to become

a celebrated and then disgraced athlete. Armstrong himself characteristics

prominently, recounting how his stepfather in the beginning pushed him to

compete even when he was underage. AK

11pm, Channel 4

Walter Presents’ 1st Finnish screening: a darkish detective drama

Election, 12midnight, BBC Just one

This wickedly amusing comedy about the election of a scholar council

president at a US higher faculty has a rather cruel just take on the

shakiness of the democratic procedure. Supervising the campaign is

teacher Matthew Broderick, who’s desperate to see Reese Witherspoon’s

corrupt manipulator Tracy Flick shed. Paul Howlett
