Here are some tips on what's worth watching on the telly this weekend between now and Sunday night . . . as always, it's a busy one!
Pick of the weekend
Love Island: the Reunion, 9.00pm Sunday, Virgin Media Two
If your Love Island withdrawal is getting too much to bear, here's something extra to keep the blues away.
Caroline Flack, Iain Stirling and all the Islanders - including the Irish, of course - from the 2019 contest will be live in the studio. Who of the couples are still together? Is love still on the cards? And have any dumped Islanders been secretly hooking up?
No question or topic, apparently, is off the table here. Which means this show could go off the charts, and there are sure to be some shocking reveals.
New or Returning Shows
Everybody in the Place, 11.35pm Friday, BBC Four
Anyone who was around to experience the Second Summer of Love will lap this up.
Acid house is often portrayed as a movement that came out of the blue, inspired by little more than a handful of London-based DJs discovering ecstasy on a 1987 holiday to Ibiza.
In truth, the explosion of acid house and rave in the UK was a reaction to a much wider and deeper set of fault lines in British culture, cutting across boundaries of class, identity and geography.
Here, Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller upturns popular notions of rave and acid house, situating them at the very centre of the seismic social changes that reshaped 1980s' Britain.
Rare and unseen archive materials map the journey from protest movements to abandoned warehouse raves, the white heat of industry bleeding into the chaotic release of the dancefloor.
Here's the classic Voodoo Ray by A Guy Called Gerald:
Hold the Sunset, 9.00pm Friday, BBC One
Alison Steadman and John Cleese return as Edith and Phil for a second run of the comedy about a retiring couple.

Edith is heartened to find that her son Roger is earning some sort of a living, even if it’s only busking with her old flame Bob the Burglar and performing a ventriloquist act with his toy crocodile Methuselah.
Merely Marvelous - The Dancing Genius of Gwen Verdon, 10.30pm Saturday, BBC Four

She was the muse of two of Broadway and Hollywood’s greatest choreographers, Jack Cole and Bob Fosse.

Below the Surface, 9.00pm Friday, BBC Four
Back for a second season, this Danish thriller was pretty impressive first time around, with a tale about a hostage situation on an underground train.
In this new run, the story is overground and far away as a woman uncovers evidence of Danish soldiers being killed while fighting in Syria, despite there being no official acknowledgement of their involvement.
Then she gets kidnapped, and the real fun begins.

A 90-minute feature film that drills into the soul of this extraordinary, magical Island and releases the story of 3,000 years of Ibizan history.
Julien Temple’s film re-enacts, with cameo Hollywood performances, forgotten epic moments in the history of the island. Should be a right blast, this. The trailer's deadly:
Nightcrawler, 11.55pm Friday, RTÉ 2
Taxi Driver meets The King of Comedy in this superb drama - one of the best films I've seen in the last 20 years.
Jake Gyllenhaal is outstanding as a cynical petty crook who decides to go into business filming crime scenes and accidents, selling the resultant footage to news broadcasters.
His determination to stay ahead of the competition leads him down an extremely dark path as his methods become increasingly ruthless.

Jack Black voices Po, who enlists the aid of a legendary team of animal fighters and their wise master to teach him the martial arts skills he needs to fulfil his destiny.
Fosse/Verdon, 9.00pm Friday, BBC Two
This eight-part biopic of choreographer, director and all-round dance genius Bobb Fosse, and dancer, singer and actor Gwen Verdon has already been hailed as a classic in the US.
The story starts in 1966 and Bob Fosse is in Hollywood on the set of Sweet Charity, the film of the successful Broadway musical that had starred his wife Gwen Verdon, who has been replaced on screen by Shirley MacLaine.
In the second episode of an opening double-bill, Gwen is with Joan Simon in Majorca, after discovering that Bob has been unfaithful during the filming of Cabaret in Munich.
She reflects on meeting Fosse years earlier, when she was offered the lead in the musical Damn Yankees. Fosse had insisted on auditioning her and they immediately hit it off. At the time Fosse was married the actress Joan McCracken.
Box Set Binge
Patrick Melrose, Sky Box Sets
Benedict Cumberbatch didn't merely chew the scenery here, he came close to almost exploding on-screen.
Based on the novels by posh English author and journalist Edward St Aubyn, this five-part drama stars Cumberbatch in the titular role, in this biting satire on the English upper class.
The story traces Melrose's journey from a traumatic childhood through to adult substance abuse and, ultimately, towards recovery.
The opening episode - where Melrose is spectacularly out of it and completely out of control - is a draining but hugely entertaining experience. The best 'out of it' acting I've seen since Peter O'Toole in My Favorite Year.
