The Movies, 9.00pm, Sky documentaries & NOW TV

In the second part of the Tom Hanks-produced documentary series, cinema rolls into the 1940s as the world erupted in war.

Cinema would both become a window into the conflict, in films like Chaplin’s The Great Dictator, and also an escape from it.

All-time classics such as Casablanca and Citizen Kane were created, Film Noir became synonymous with the decade thanks to Billy Wilder’s Double Indemnity amongst others, and Disney continued their successful line of feature length animations with Dumbo and Bambi.

With the arrival of the 50s, the Cold War and the introduction of television made its impact on the big screen. Sci fi parables like The War of the Worlds were introduced, and Alfred Hitchcock brought a new kind of psychological horror to audiences.

Van Morrison - Up on Cyprus Avenue, 9.00pm, BBC Four

Highlights of Van Morrison's unique live performance recorded on his 70th birthday in August 2015, on the Belfast avenue he made famous through the iconic album Astral Weeks.

Followed at 11pm by Van Morrison at the BBC.

I’ll Be Gone in the Dark, 9.00pm, Sky Crime & NOW TV

This six-part documentary series chronicles writer Michelle McNamara’s dogged hunt for the Californian serial killer and rapist, dubbed the Golden State Killer.

Executive produced by the late writer’s husband, Patton Oswalt, McNamara’s work gives a voice to the survivors and their families, documenting their story in an era when sex crimes were often dismissed or hidden in shame.

A riveting meditation on obsession and loss, and also serving as a memoir to McNamara, who would not live to see the case be closed, this is a story of the fierce determination of one woman to bring the case to light.
