The Restaurant Man

8pm, BBC2

Russell Norman, the Restaurant Man, really is very cool. He's organic. Where others steam in with a meat cleaver, Russell dispenses wisdom like a waiter unhurriedly uncorking a vintage bottle of Dom Pérignon, all the while fixing you in the eyes with a look that says, "I know how to handle meat." Tonight, he dishes up advice to Dave and Debbie, who have invested all their moolah in a run-down Gloucestershire village inn they want to turn into a gastropub. Can Russell help with their staffing and serving issues? Ali Catterall

Royal Cousins At War

9pm, BBC2

When Europe went to war in 1914, Germany, Russia and the United Kingdom had heads of state who were also cousins. »

Twenty20 Cricket: Australia v England

8am, Sky Sports 2

The most sadistic of Australian fans must sympathise with England by this point: whitewashed in the Tests, trounced in the subsequent one-day series, now reduced to salvaging some dignity from three T20 games, of which this contest at Hobart's Bellerive Oval is the first. The relative lack of expectation here may coax England out of the shell in which they are now hunkered; time, perhaps, to let some potential sentinels of the next generation have a bash.

The Restaurant Man

8pm, BBC2

Russell Norman, of London's Polpo and Polpetto restaurants, is the titular Restaurant Man. Eschewing the aggro of a certain craggy chef in favour of a Beeny-esque gentle-nurturing style, he joins budding restaurateurs hoping to realise their dreams. »

- Andrew Mueller, Ben Arnold, Jonathan Wright, Mark Jones, Rachel Aroesti, Hannah J Davies, David Stubbs, Hannah Verdier
