Pick of the Day

The Battle for Britney: Fans, Cash and a Conservatorship, 9.00pm, BBC Two

Here’s another documentary about Britney Spears, who doesn’t seem too happy with all this attention.

Mobeen Azhar attempts to untangle the complexities surrounding the controversial conservatorship the singer has been under for the last 13 years.

Mobeen delves into one of the most passionate fan bases in modern times, attending a court hearing along the way and finding himself in the midst of the ongoing battle between Britney's conservatorship team and the many folk behind the #FreeBritney movement.

The documentary also features never-before-seen interviews with contributors including her former choreographer Brian Friedman and celebrity blogger (spare me!) Perez Hilton.
