What to watch and review on Monday, June 7.
Reg (BBC1, 9pm) Written by the excellent Jimmy McGovern and starring the great Tim Roth and Anna Maxwell Martin, this film length drama chronicles the true story of a furious father whose son was killed in Iraq. Grieving Reg Keys accused Tony Blair of taking us to war “on a lie” and stood in the General Election against him. Reg remains a huge thorn in the former Prime Minister’s side.
Springwatch (BBC2, 8pm) Will turbo-charged hosts Chris Packham and Michaela Strachan overtake Top Gear in the ratings war? Why is this gentle nightly nature programme such a success? Beats me. Please explain.
The Great British Sewing Bee (BBC2, 9pm) An international special as the remaining contestants stitch together Chinese tops, saris and West African dresses. Edge of your seat stuff as the show goes global.
An Immigrant's Guide To Britain (Channel 4, 10pm) In case you hadn’t realised that we Brits are a bit weird, here’s German comedian Henning Wehn explaining why our many eccentricities are so strange to foreigners.
EastEnders (BBC1, 8pm) More doom and gloom as Roxy swoons over randy Andy, Donna gets drunk and mad Max bans his daughters from visiting him in jail.
Coronation Street (ITV, 7.30 and 8.30pm) Will Todd tell the cops about Sarah’s confession? Will Steve forgive Michelle for her extra-marital fling? Will anyone care?
