Pick of the Day
Perry Mason, 9.00pm, Sky Atlantic
This new HBO drama really looks the business. Essential watching for any fans of hardboiled Film Noir movies or pulp fiction.
Emmy Award winning actor Matthew Rhys (The Americans) steps into the iconic role of Perry Mason, last seen on the small screen way back in the 1950s and '60s. This version's set in the early 1930s.
While the rest of the United States struggles through the Great Depression, Los Angeles is a city that's booming. Oil! Olympic games! Talking pictures! Evangelical fervour! And a child kidnapping gone very, very wrong.
Based on characters created by author Erle Stanley Gardner, this drama series follows the origins of American fiction’s most legendary criminal defence lawyer, Perry Mason.
When the case of the decade breaks down his door, Mason’s relentless pursuit of the truth reveals a fractured city and just maybe, a pathway to redemption for himself.

I May Destroy You, 10.45pm, BBC One
One of the best new shows of 2020 - and probably the bravest - Michaela Cole’s zeitgeisty drama about consent and consequences has been a riveting and sometimes uncomfortable watch so far.
In tonight’s episode, a tumultuous day finds Arabella reassessing a sexual encounter with Zain and, following a promising new lead in the investigation, opening up to Biagio about her assault.
Later, after a meeting with Susy Henny, Arabella threatens to break the internet when she goes off-script at a writing summit.

Afua also visits Germany to see if the UK can learn from how they have addressed their past.
The Black Panthers - Storyville, 10.00pm, BBC Four
Fascinating documentary about the American black radical movement that rose to prominence in the 1970s against a backdrop of civil rights protests and escalating war in Vietnam.

Inside Monaco: Playground of the Rich, 9.00pm, BBC Two
The final episode of the documentary features a tour of an extraordinary new home - Villa Troglodyte, which has come onto the market.

The pressure to build more houses in such a small country has left Prince Albert with a challenge.

Extending into the sea is a complex operation, but once complete the largest villas there are estimated to sell for around €100million.
