There's a new Lena Dunham-directed drama called Industry, MasterChef: the Professionals returns, Donna Air joins the cast of The Split, and Diana: The Interview That Shocked the World looks at the infamous Martin Bashir interview from the 1990s . . .

Pick of the Day

Industry, 9.15pm, BBC Two

This new drama from the Beeb has been described as bleak, so if you’re looking for some light relief try Why Women Kill (10.30pm, TG4). This show will only confirm that people can be appalling.

Girls creator and star Lena Dunham directs this opening episode, which introduces viewers to the fictitious Pierpoint, London’s most pre-eminent financial institution.

Five recent university graduates - Harper Stern, Yasmin Kara-Hanani, Robert Spearing, Gus Sackey and Hari Dhar - all aim to make their mark on the world by proving their worth and becoming permanent hires at the bank.

But for one of them, it all proves to be too much.

MasterChef: the Professionals, 9.00pm, BBC One

Gregg Wallace and chefs Marcus Wareing and Monica Galetti preside over the next six weeks, as 32 professional chefs will strive to demonstrate their outstanding skills, commitment and creativity to convince the judges they are worthy of the 2020 title.

In tonight’s first heat, four professional chefs from around the country arrive at the MasterChef kitchen ready to put their reputations on the line and their skills to the test.

Two chefs' pasta-making skills are challenged by Monica when she tasks them to prepare mushroom tortellini filled with a mushroom duxelles and served with a chosen sauce.

The other two chefs take on Marcus’s recipe for devilled butterflied mackerel with a herb-flavoured mayo and a cucumber and fennel salad.

Competitive cooking, eh?
