Tonight, the energy bursts from your screen!
1. The little drummer girl
BBC 1 22.00-23.00
The BBC has the hang of it. Two years ago, surprised them with The night manager, an excellent series on the book by John Le Carré, Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston. Now there is this Little drummer girl, also a vintage Le Carré (in English: The decoy), with Florence Pugh and Alexander Skarsgard.
2. Grands travaux
Canvas 22.00-23.40 hours
Lovely, respectful documentary by Olivia Rochette and Gerard-Jan Claes, about the pupils in the Brussels vocational school Anneessens-Funck. A concentratieschool, a ‘breeding ground for extremism’, but the makers succeed in all the prejudices about these young people to smithereens to save.
3. Billy Connolly’s tracks across America
One 22.40-23.25 hours
One repeats this season something to many programs, to our liking, but there are worse things than one more time to this excellent documentary road-movie of the Scottish vocalist to watch.
