Emma Thompson stars in a new BBC drama, the Eurovision kicks off, and there are documentaries about dance doyen Bob Fosse and biker legend William Dunlop . . .

Pick of the Day

Years and Years, 9.00pm, BBC One

This new (and apparently brilliant) drama has nothing to do with the band of the same name – but it has everything to do with the way politics is currently being played out in the UK.

One night in 2019, politician Vivienne Rook (Emma Thompson) causes a scandal on live TV.

At the same time, the Lyons family is united, as Rosie (Ruth Madeley) gives birth to a son. Brothers Stephen (Rory Kinnear) and Daniel (Russell Tovey) gather at the bedside, with grandmother Muriel (Anne Reid), and they wonder what life will be like for little Lincoln.

Five years in the future, in the London of 2024, Stephen and Celeste (T’Nia Miller) worry about their daughter, Bethany (Lydia West), who declares herself as transhuman.

In Manchester, Daniel’s now married to Ralph (Dino Fetscher), but is falling for Ukrainian refugee Viktor Goraya (Maxim Baldry). When the Lyons gather for Muriel’s birthday they’re interrupted by a call from their missing sister, Edith (Jessica Hynes).

But she brings extraordinary news, and life for the Lyons is about to change forever.

Bob Fosse: it's Showtime, 10.15pm, Sky Arts & NOW TV

The life and times of Bob Fosse - dancer, choreographer and director.

From the seedy strip clubs of Chicago to the bright lights of Hollywood, Fosse created some of the most influential and original works ever for the stage and screen.

The list includes Sweet Charity, All That Jazz, Chicago and Cabaret. He also inspired Michael Jackson’s signature dance moves and Beyonce’s most memorable videos.

With interviews with choreographers, films critics, dancers and Fosse fans Will Young and Louise Redknapp, a specially filmed new dance sequence and expertly chosen clips, here's a look at the man behind the legend.

And here's the trailer for his 1979 classic All That Jazz:

Ending Tonight

Your Home Made Perfect, 8.00pm, BBC Two

In the final episode of this cutting-edge home makeover show hosted by Angela Scanlon, the focus is on a four-bed 1960s' house in Wiltshire.

A family of keen musicians, they also hoped a large reception room would give them the opportunity to play their instruments together. But three years later the house is dark and uninviting.

A poor layout means the four of them live quite separately, and those dreamed-of musical get-togethers never happen.

Don't Forget the Driver, 10.00pm, BBC Two

As this impressive downbeat comedy concludes, it’s another early morning in Bognor Regis, as Peter (the always impressive Toby Jones) and Kayla (Erin Kellyman) get ready for the day.

Due to unexpected circumstances, Peter is forced to do a school trip - something he is usually so keen to avoid that he’s had it written into the terms of his contract.

Surgeons: at the Edge of Life, 9.00pm, BBC Two

The second season of the groundbreaking show concludes with an episode focused on the work of surgeons in the fast-paced field of trauma surgery.

With access to the emergency department and trauma theatres of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, the episode features some of the UK’s top surgeons battling to make the difference between life and death for critically-injured patients.
