WHAT can’t you miss on TV tonight? Our guide to the must-see shows…
Give It A Year, 8pm, ITV
ITV enjoy revisiting people after 12 months at the moment, but this Dragons’ Den-style programme, presented by Karren Brady (right), is very different to Davina’s This Time Next Year.
Karren visits business start-ups – from head-screwed-on entrepreneurs to madcap inventors – sets them targets, then returns a year later to see if they are one of the 30,000 that fail or if the business is flying.
While Karren’s no-nonsense approach – she actually calls self-styled Wallace And Gromit inventor Thomas ‘deluded’ when he shows her a £1,000 mug that keeps tea warm – seems harsh at times, it’s refreshing and comes from a place of reality.
The Queen’s Green Planet, 9pm, ITV
We’re aware of Prince Charles’ love of plants – he famously talks to them – but it seems he’s inherited his passion from The Queen (right).
This documentary tells the story of a project she’s spearheading to create a Commonwealth-wide network of protected forests, and sees her talking to Sir David Attenborough (left).
Nightmare Pets SOS, 7.30pm, BBC One
Bad behaviour is the number one reason we rehome our animals, and this show follows owners at the end of their tether seeking help from a crisis centre in Sussex.
This week, they include Jo (centre), who’s ended up in A&E thanks to her bitey parrot Archie (left), and Hannah, whose moggy makes everything soggy with his weeing.
Can behavioural expert Chirag Patel help?
Buy It Now, 5.30pm, Channel 4
It must be the day for new business shows to start!
This daytime offering, hosted by Brian Conley (below), sees inventors pitch new ideas to a studio audience.
If any are convinced to buy, the inventor then has the chance to try to sell to outlets including JML.
First up is a back-combing hairbrush that promises to volumise limp hair, and a wine glass cuff to prevent condensation dripping on clothes.
Secret Agent Selection: WW2, 9pm, BBC Two
The remaining 10 candidates in this living-history series get their first taste of 1940s guerrilla- warfare training, or as Winston Churchill called it: ‘The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare’ – which, when it includes eye gouging and testicle crushing, is pretty accurate.
