Here are some tips on what's worth watching on the box this weekend between now and Sunday night - as ever, it's a busy one...

Pick of the weekend

Glastonbury, Friday-Sunday, BBC One, Two & Four

Back after taking 2018 off, the UK's legendary music festival returns and once again the BBC are all over it like a rock 'n' roll rash.

Between BBC One, BBC Two and BBC Four there'll be more than 30 hours of Glastonbury, as the three channels come live from Worthy Farm throughout the whole festival weekend.

Plus, also on BBC One, there will be a special edition of The One Show from the site on Friday evening. Also on the Friday evening, on BBC Two there are two special programmes - one that will reflect shows and stories from day one of the festival, while the second will bring viewers all the action from the Pyramid Stage as Stormzy performs his headline set.

There will be more coverage on BBC Two on Saturday afternoon and on Saturday evening the channel will be bringing audiences the full headline set from The Killers.

On Sunday, BBC One will broadcast Kylie Minogue’s show in the legendary tea-time slot and BBC Two will broadcast the full set from The Cure.

BBC Four will provide extensive and discerning coverage of highlights, plus live footage from key sets across the weekend, taking viewers to The Other Stage, West Holts, The Park, The John Peel Stage and, of course, the legendary Pyramid Stage.

BBC Four’s immersive, curated coverage kicks off on Friday night with a set from Tame Impala and then runs all Saturday and Sunday evening, offering highlights and whole sets from across the festival including performances from The Chemical Brothers, Janelle Monae and Christine & The Queens.

If you're into music, there's your weekend. It all kicks off at 7.30pm on Friday, on BBC Two.

In the pilot, son and trainee priest Lawrence returns home and announces he's quitting the seminary to go off and save the world.

Ending this weekend

The Tommy Tiernan Show, 9.30pm Saturday, RTÉ One

It's fair to say that this show has been a major success – and it's all down to the host's ability to enjoy a good natter no matter who his guests are.

As usual, there isn't a peep about who'll be on for this final show. And even if I did know, I'd be barred from the RTÉ canteen for the rest of my time here.
