Thursday’s best TV: Giraffes – Africa’s Gentle Giants, Nietsche: Genius of the Modern World

22 June 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The fight to protect giraffes from poachers. Plus: the formation of a moral landscape in the absence of God

Terrific documentary founded on a debatable premise: that insufficient attention is paid to the giraffe, a creature as much a staple of wildlife films as the great sabre-fanged felines and/or David Attenborough (who narrates this). The film follows expert Dr Julian Fennessy as he records the welfare of Africa’s remaining giraffe herds – not a risk-free occupation, thanks to heavily armed poachers – and escorts one rare breed to safety.

Saturday's best TV: The Disappearance; Beyoncé – Lemonade

17 June 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The glamorous French drama concludes with family relationships in grave danger, and it’s the British TV debut for Bey’s visual album

9pm, BBC2

Brenda Emmanus and Andrew Marr attend the opening night wingding to christen Tate Modern’s new extension – the £260m tower to be known as Switch House. It is a huge project, expanding the gallery’s already immense footprint by over half again. But given the gallery’s success it’s necessary – the 4.7 million visitors attracted last year were well over twice what Tate Modern was originally designed to accommodate. Andrew Mueller

Wednesday’s best TV: The Big C & Me; The Secrets of Growing Old; Versailles

31 May 2016 10:09 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Real people battle cancer in this affecting documentary and senior citizens demonstrate that age is just a number. Plus: the lavish French import gets going

Every year in the UK, more than 350,000 people are told that they have cancer. This new series introduces a few of them. It is, rather inevitably, extremely affecting television. Tonight we meet Welsh mother-of-five, Sally, who hopes that stem-cell treatment might bring victory in her 10-year struggle; Leeds pigeon-fancier Dominic, diagnosed with male breast cancer; and London belly-dancer Yvette, weighing up the risks of experimental drugs.

Thursday’s best TV: How Should I Vote? – The EU Debate; Neil Gaiman’s Likely Stories

25 May 2016 10:09 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Victoria Derbyshire hosts an EU debate giving a chance for our younguns to quiz the two sides; four-part series of Gaiman adaptations begins. Plus: Dispatches infiltrates the Birmingham children’s services department labelled a ‘national disgrace’

How is there still nearly a month to go? For the benefit of voters who haven’t made their minds up, and who are not yet reacting to the phrase “EU referendum” by fainting with boredom, Victoria Derbyshire hosts a debate aimed at the young folk. Seems fair enough, as they’re the ones who’ll have to live longest with the consequences. An audience of under-30s will question politicians from the leave and remain campaigns. Andrew Mueller

Thursday’s best TV – Going Forward; Grayson Perry: All Man

18 May 2016 10:20 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Jo Brand returns as nurse Kim Wilde and the artist’s series on masculinity concludes with the City boys. Plus: Angela Rippon investigates The Truth About Dementia

It’s still more than a month until the EU vote, although on current form it may end up seeming six times that long. Jeremy Paxman whiles away some of that time by descending upon Brussels in an attempt to divine some reality about the workaday processes of the EU, speaking to a selection of officials and politicians from the 27 other member countries. Hopefully, some cool perspective amid the hot air emanating from both sides. Andrew Mueller

Wednesday’s best TV: Horizon; Five-Star Babies; What British Muslims Really Think

12 April 2016 10:20 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Apocalypse later in The End of the Solar System; inside the Portland Hospital’s private birth suite. Plus: Trevor Phillips analyses the data

Subtitled The End of the Solar System, this episode of the documentary series is best imagined as a trailer for the ultimate horror movie. It was filmed in the mid-western American town of Peoria, Illinois – which, helpfully, has a scale model of the solar system embedded in its cityscape. This, along with the insights of astronomers, is used to outline the consequences of the eventual overheating of our Sun. The bad news: we’re doomed. The good news: it’s a way off yet.

Thursday’s best TV: Workers Or Shirkers? and How to Stay Young

6 April 2016 10:15 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Ian Hislop’s potted history of state welfare; and try the ‘sit and rise’ test to keep that youthful glow. Plus: GI Janes take training and Evel Knievel’s transformation from scoundrel to petrol-powered Elvis

As Hislop’s potted history of state benefits demonstrates, not only are the arguments about welfare as old as welfare itself, but the terms of the dispute have barely altered – socially responsible hand up or counterproductive handout? Hislop considers the legacies of Victorian social reformers such as Edwin Chadwick and brings the discussion into the here and now with Deirdre Kelly of Benefits Street, Tristram Hunt and a pre-resignation Iain Duncan Smith.

Wednesday’s best TV: Horizon, Employable Me; Grantchester; The People Next Door

5 April 2016 10:10 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Ocean-hunting in outer space; inclusivity in the workplace; and priest-and-police procedural reaches its redemptive denouement. Plus: neighbourly paranoia from writer Ben Chanan

Our search for life on other planets has also been the search for water on other planets. While we haven’t yet found much of the former, in recent years we’ve found (or at least come to suspect the existence of) rather a lot of the latter. This episode, subtitled Oceans of the Solar System, recaps what we’ve learned so far, and looks ahead to what forms the hunt might take in the future – revealing along the way Nasa’s extraordinary plans for a submarine to roam the oceans of other worlds.

Friday’s best TV: Easter 1916: The Enemy Files, Billy Connolly’s Tracks Across America and Boomers

31 March 2016 10:10 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Michael Portillo’s doc explains how Britain reacted to Ireland’s Easter Rising; Connolly cements his national treasure status on a train jaunt and Boomers’ terrific cast carries it off

One of the certainties of the Easter Rising that convulsed Dublin a century ago this month, was the nationalist credo “England’s difficulty is Ireland’s opportunity”. The thinking was that London would be too concerned with the western front to pay much attention to a relatively minorsquabble near home. As Michael Portillo’s documentary demonstrates, it didn’t work out like that. Using cabinet papers, military orders and intelligence reports of the era, he recalls how Britain saw – and crushed – the revolt. Andrew Mueller

Saturday's best TV: Being The Brontës; Follow The Money; Saturday Kitchen Live

25 March 2016 11:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The lives of the literary sisters are explored, the Danish corruption thriller continues in stylish fashion, and James Martin signs off as host of Saturday Kitchen

9pm, BBC2

It is one of the most extraordinary backstories in all of literature – the concurrent authorship of three enduring novels by three sisters sharing the same Yorkshire home. This documentary sees Martha Kearney, Lucy Mangan and Helen Oyeyemi visiting Haworth and attempting to reimagine the period in the mid-1840s in which Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre and Agnes Grey were written. See also The Brontës At The BBC, on BBC4 at 8pm on Sunday, a new series reflecting on decades of BBC adaptations of Brontë novels. Andrew Mueller

Wednesday’s best TV: Grantchester, Raised by Wolves, Secrets of the Sauna

1 March 2016 11:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It’s the return of sleuthing clergyman Sidney Chambers and Caz and Caitlin Moran’s comedy – plus we go behind the scenes at a gay sauna in Nottingham

The conclusion of Guy Hibbert’s sprawling thriller. The plot thus far has followed Mei (Katie Leung), a young Chinese woman abandoned under the one-child policy and raised in Britain. Mei is contacted by her birth mother when the brother she never knew she had is on the hook for a murder he didn’t commit. What has ensued has been an intriguing, gruelling weaving of themes such as dislocation, corruption and loyalty. Tonight, the judge accuses Ajun of corrupting witnesses as Mei makes contact with the real killer. Andrew Mueller

Wednesday’s best TV: One Child; The Great Sport Relief Bake Off; Midsomer Murders

17 February 2016 7:51 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

An ambitious and effective east-meets-west thriller; celebrities’ soggy bottoms; and the horse-assisted murder of a squire’s son

Debut of an ambitious miniseries by Guy Hibbert, best known for writing the TV films Five Minutes of Heaven and Omagh. Mei (Katie Leung) is a young Chinese-born woman who has been raised by adoptive parents in Britain. The first she hears from her birth family in Guangzhou is a request to come “home” to help the brother she has never met, who is facing execution for a crime he didn’t commit. It’s both an effective thriller, and a wider parable of the mutual bewilderment that often characterises relations between east and west. Andrew Mueller

Wednesday’s best TV: How to Die: Simon’s Choice; Violent Child, Desperate Parents; Occupied; Discovering Britain

9 February 2016 10:10 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The story of Simon Binner, who ended his own life at a clinc in Switzerland; the therapist trying to help violent children and their parents; Classy Norwegian political drama. Plus: Maureen Lipman and Larry Lamb’s great British B-road trip

Last year, Simon Binner, a British man suffering from motor neurone disease, ended his own life at a clinic in Switzerland. This film follows his last months and moments, and is bracing viewing, as is clearly intended. In the background, as Binner narrates his final journey, is a parliamentary debate on assisted suicide, which reflects a conflict within Binner’s family; his wife, Debbie, has generally opposed assisted dying. How to Die depicts as exacting a test of the principle as might be imagined, or dreaded. Andrew Mueller

Monday’s best TV: Silent Witness, Crashing. Plus: They Live By Night

31 January 2016 10:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Michael Portillo at Grand Central Station, nocturnal lions, a picnic killing investigated and some unexpected truths in the homeshare sitcom; plus Nicholas Ray’s cult film noir about star-crossed lovers

Michael Portillo’s new series reinforces the truth that there are few travel experiences as underrated as the American rail trip, yet in this first episode he doesn’t make it off Manhattan island. Portillo’s central conceit, as he plots his trip with Appleton’s 1879 guide to Us railways, is to study a time when Grand Central Station was the country’s most important travel hub, and the city it served was home to the scheming rail barons who had conquered the country.

Friday’s best TV: Pierre Boulez at the BBC; The Last Leg Goes Down Under; Music Moguls: Masters of Pop; Spin

29 January 2016 6:59 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Commemorative trawl through the BBC archive of the irascible French composer and conductor; comedians travel through the outback; PR in pop past and future; Plus: Anne Visage triumphs in the first-round vote

A commemorative trawl through the BBC archive of Pierre Boulez, who died on 5 January. The irascible French composer and conductor had a long relationship with the Beeb, including a stint in the 1970s as chief conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Performances here include Boulez conducting works by Debussy, Bartók and Stravinsky, as well as his own compositions, which endure as ghosts of Boulez himself, resoundingly iconoclastic and uncompromising.
