This is a BBC four-part tragicomic drama adapted by David Nicholls and based on his novel of the same name.

Douglas Petersen (an excellent Tom Hollander) is blindsided when his wife Connie (Saskia Reeves) tells him that she’s not sure she wants to be married to him anymore.

Devastated, he aims to prove to his wife that he is still the man she fell in love with and to repair his troubled relationship with their son Albie (Tom Taylor), on a long-planned family grand tour of Europe.

What’s meant to be a holiday to mark the last summer before Albie leaves for university becomes, for Douglas, a desperate quest. Will he be able to keep his family together?

Blitz Spirit with Lucy Worsley, 8.30pm, BBC One

Anyone know what the English talked about before WWII? They’ve talked about little else ever since.

Here, the historian tells the stories of six people who lived through the Blitz, featuring archive footage and readings from personal biographies, oral history collections, government records and private, unpublished diaries.

She also visits key locations including the Imperial War Museum archive in London and the Mass Observation archive at The Keep in Sussex.

More World Cup followed in 1962 (where Pele got injured early in the tournament) and 1970, with the latter win in Mexico confirming Pele’s status as the greatest player on the planet.
