English cook/restaurateur/TV presenter Rick Stein has one of the best jobs on TV and no mistake.

This latest show features him on a journey through the byways of France, from the Channel to the Mediterranean, always on the lookout for culinary lessons from the French.

His journey begins in the Norman port of Dieppe with turbot straight off the boats, followed by a search for sea herbs along the Bay of the Somme, inspiring him to cook a seafood gratin.

He then heads for southern Champagne, loved by Renoir, whose wife also happened to be a formidable cook.

Manifest, 9.00pm, Sky One & NOW TV

Gave up on this dull show weeks ago and am amazed it got an early renewal. It's so flat and unimaginative it makes for a painful watch.

Anyway, it’s a double -bill season finale for the hit mystery drama. When Michaela meets the mysterious James Griffin during a police investigation, the passengers learn what happens when the callings fall in the wrong hands.

Don't Miss

Rich Hall's Red Menace, 9.00pm, BBC Four

In his latest documentary, Rich Hall examines the highly complex relationship between the late 20th Century's two great super powers - The United States of America and the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

He delves into the propaganda, ignorance, fear, secrecy and paranoia of the time, and the 40-year stand-off between the USA and the former USSR almost brought about nuclear war.

Retelling the extraordinary, bizarre and untold stories of this period allows him to study the Cold War from both sides, and not just from an American perspective.
